Earlier this year, 158 people working for B Corps across the UK came together in climate action, making simple pledges to do some of our Do Actions as their new year’s resolutions.
Here’s a brief summary of the impact they clocked up together.
First things first, the most popular actions were: Continue reading
It’s exactly a month since B Inspired; it’s taken me 30 days longer than hoped to share my reflections (largely thanks to being kept busy planning our B Corp 2020 Pledge Challenge!).
Here are six things I heard at B Inspired that have lingered in my thoughts over the last month, and I thought worth sharing, late as they may be. Continue reading
Last January, innocent drinks came back to run their third employee pledge challenge on Do Nation, this time asking their people to make a pledge for the planet as part of their New Year’s Resolutions. Their case study is now live.
Over 1,000 pledges were made, with 45% of those turning into long term habits. As a result, they totally smashed their target of saving 375,000 bananas worth of carbon. Continue reading
This January, invite your people to use their resolutions to make the world a better place, and to take action against the climate emergency.
Join the our B Corp 2020 Pledge Challenge to see how many pledges B Corp staff can make together, and how much carbon we can save collectively. Continue reading
Through the first 6 weeks of 2019, eight B Corps took part in our Pledge Challenge, battling to see who’s employees could make – and complete – the most pledges. Pledges to do things like donating unwanted clothes to charity, wasting less food, or taking shorter showers.
All small actions that together add up to make a big difference, for our own health and that of our planet.
We reported some stats about the pledged impact in February, and now that most pledges have come to an end, we are back with a summary of the confirmed impact.
Each pledge is to try an action out for two months; when that two months finishes, we ask users to report on how they got on (49% of users responded). From that data, as well as a deeper impact survey that they have the option of filling out at the end, we compiled the following data… Continue reading
As B Corp month draws to a close, we thought it was a good time to review the impact clocked up in our B Corp Pledge Challenge.
This January and February, people across eight B Corps were busy making pledges to ‘B The Change’ in their own personal lives. While their pledges are all still in progress – they have two months to try them out before then coming back to confirm how they got on – here’s a summary of the potential impact they could have together, if they’re successful*.

UPDATE: We’ve extended the deadline for signing up to 15th February!
For those of you who were at the B Corp retreat this summer, you’ll know that if it wasn’t for B Corps, Do Nation probably wouldn’t still be around. You’ll know how much I love working with businesses like you who share our passion and drive for using business as a force for good. And how when it comes to B Corps, it’s more true than ever that small actions add up to make a big difference.
That’s why I’ve decided to run another B Corp challenge this January, helping to build a sense of the movement’s impact with your staff, allowing all members of B Corp teams to feel like an active part of this amazing community.
What is the B Corp Pledge Challenge?
B Corps – the next Do Nation challenge is on!
Around World Environment Day (5th June), which B Corp’s employees can make (and keep!) the most pledges for the planet? Can we reach 3,000 pledges together? Continue reading

As the saying goes, the purpose of a business is to solve a problem. In the UK, climate change naysayers are few and far between at only 2% to 5% of the population according to a ComRes study. Of those who believe in climate change, the majority believe that humans are the direct cause. The good news is: most agree it’s a problem. Businesses have the opportunity to embrace this problem with creativity, reap the potential earnings, and benefit shareholders. But, many don’t know where to start. The task seems daunting. Here is where Certified B Corporations® come in.
Calling all B Corps – listen up!
