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.
I often think we ought to prepare case studies for more of our client programmes here at Do Nation – there are so many great stories of impact and engagement to share. But in reality, there just isn’t the time. Delivering the service has got to come first.
It began late afternoon one Monday back in September 2016, when I got a call from Vicky Murray, Sustainability Manager at Pukka Herbs – she wanted to launch a company-wide pledge challenge on Do Nation – that Friday. Would that be possible? Continue reading →
In case you missed it, earlier this summer we picked up a fairly prestigious award – prestigious in the world of sustainable business, that is. And now we have the case study to boot.
Employee Engagement Campaign of the Year 2017 is the title we earned at the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards, won in conjunction with Hill+Knowlton Strategies for the behaviour change programme we ran with their staff. Continue reading →
It’s coming up to the second anniversary of the SDGs and it seems like every other business is doing something to show how they are working towards the goals of the biggest global movement for sustainable development.
Ever since the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs or Global Goals) were agreed in September 2015, we’ve been keen to use Do Nation to raise awareness and increase action towards them. Given that each of our 56 Do Actions supports at least one of the Global Goals, it seems a bit remiss not to have publicised this already. We’ve already helped over 10,000 people to take over 26,000 actions towards the SDGs. It’s time to start shouting about that.Continue reading →
I’ve always been a bit of a secret data nerd, that’s why we take measuring our impact so seriously at Do Nation.
So this is my favourite time of year at Do HQ: impact report season. I’ve been knee deep in excel charts and pivot tables for the last few weeks. Heaven. I thought I’d take a few moments to emerge from my data-induced reverie to share some of the most surprising (and unsurprising) stats from this year’s Do Data. Continue reading →
As we all know, the world around us is in flux. Uncertainty abounds. But one thing is certain: we need to take action on climate change now.
The bold targets set through the Paris Agreement and Sustainable Development Goals are great progress, but without action from each one of us, and soon, these targets will be missed and rendered meaningless.
Rosie Cripps, an engineer at Arup, felt passionate about this. Early in 2016 she contacted us asking if Do Nation could help her to open up conversations – and action – on climate change around her Cardiff office. Continue reading →
Today sees the launch of four new Do Actions with an interesting twist, developed in partnership with our client Hill + Knowlton.
At first glance, they may look like a sideways leap into an unconnected world of personal development. But here are three reasons why I am excited about how these pledges can contribute to our mission of making sustainable living mainstream:Continue reading →
