Kelly+Partners has officially become a part of the global B Corp movement which harnesses the power of our business growth to create a positive change. B Corp recognises our mission to help the people, businesses and communities we serve, be better off.
What is a Certified B Corporation?
Certified B Corporations are part of wider movement to redefine business success to align with sustainable goals. B Corp is a trust mark for companies that meet the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, public transparency and legal accountability.
Led by B Lab, the non-profit organisation behind B Corp, the certification's mission is to create a more sustainable and inclusive economy with opportunities for everyone. Governments can only do so much. This is why, businesses like Kelly+Partners have stepped up to provide solutions to these complex global issues and are being recognised for our work.
"To certify as an ASX-listed company is rare, given the additional challenges listed companies face in reporting and compliance. It is both an impressive achievement for Kelly+Partners and another step forward for the movement of B Corps in our region"
- Andrew Davies, CEO of B Lab Australia and New Zealand
How do you become B Corp Certified?
To qualify as a B Corp, a business must have an explicit social or environmental mission as well as legally binding responsibility to take into account their team, community, shareholders and the environment.
B Corps are required to re-verify every 3 years. This means businesses are accountable to keeping up with the high standards and expectations of B Corp.
