Verity London, EVCOM Member and the strategy and communications agency for responsible business, has become one of just 1,000 organisations in the UK to have been awarded B Corp certification.
The agency supports organisations – from global giants to third sector clients – helping them become more responsible through expert communications strategy, content and campaigns. Verity London won B Corp status based on its own positive impact on workers, suppliers, community and the environment. The award follows a rigorous two year process, during which B Lab – B Corps’ parent company – assessed the Camden-based agency, looking under the hood of every aspect of the business, its transparency, accountability and governance. This month Verity London finally got the news that it had smashed the minimum eighty points required under B Corp’s assessment process.
Verity London now joins a global community of only 5,000 businesses who have reached this milestone. It now needs to continue improving on its social impact actions in preparation for re certification by B Lab in three years’ time.
Debra Sobel, Co founder and CEO of Verity London said, “After a long and detailed process that began in the midst of the pandemic, we’re incredibly proud to have finally received the incredible news that we are B Corp certified. We’re now looking forward to doing even more to make a difference as a company, whilst continuing to partner with our fantastic clients to help them on their own responsible business communications and content. Thank you to every one of the brilliant team at Verity for everything they do every day to help us become the agency we are – one that truly reflects the ethos and values we aimed for when we began sixteen years ago.”
