B a Better Business

Learn more about B Corp

Want to make a positive impact?

As the first North East business to certify as a B Corp – awarded to businesses that balance purpose and profit – we’re passionate about sharing our story and helping other likeminded businesses to reach their goals and join the movement.

#BCorp means valuing your workers, customers, environment, and community as much as your profits (or more!) — and having corporate governance that keeps those values in place.

This page includes resources and blogs for B Corps and those businesses considering making an economic and environmental impact.

Join the movement. Discover what all B Corps are setting out to achieve.

Robson Laidler has been recognized as one of the Best for the World™ B Corps of 2022!

To be Best for the World, B Corps must have scores in the top 5% of one or more of the five impact areas assessed and we have been recognized for our efforts in the Governance area.  

As all B Corps are already businesses that meet high standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose, this is a recognition that makes us incredibly proud!

To become B-Corp certified, businesses must achieve 80-points or more in the B-Corp Impact Assessment which measures the impact of both a company’s day-to-day operations and their business model.
