B PURPOSE BUREAU
WE HELP BUSINESSES PUT PURPOSE AND ESG
More and more people want to buy from, work for and invest in businesses they trust and whose values align with their own. They want companies that can show that they deliver a clear purpose across environmental, social and governance priorities. This is why a company needs a clear purpose, an actionable sustainability strategy and a proven track record. The journey to get these things in place is one of the most meaningful a company can undertake. Our job is to help you on this journey, regardless of where you start from, and how far you want to go. The important thing is to set out; to go from intent to action.
"We are very pleased with BPB’s process. Every step was well documented, ensuring transparency and clarity. Practical examples further increased our understanding and confidence and we now have the keys to successfully implement changes and go forward. Good 'out-of-the-box' ideas proposed which widens the scope of possible actions for our company to put into effect. There’s a big job ahead but the positive process has instilled us with optimism and a sense of accomplishment"
Igor Duc, Founder & CEO
FROM INTENT TO ACTION
PURPOSE AT THE CORE. For the last 50 plus years the mantra of the business world has been to maximize profits with very few regards for social goals or environmental impact. This, however, is rapidly changing. Driven by customer demand, investors and employees, more and more companies look at how to deliver value across environmental, social and governance priorities - whilst being profitable. The question is how? There is no one simple answer to this question. It is a journey, and it starts with the purpose.
MEASURE WHAT MATTERS, SIMPLY GOOD BUSINESS. Identifying a purpose and the positive impact we would like to have on the world, we must start measuring impact on all stakeholders, as rigorously as we measure profit and loss. If not, our ability to run a healthy business will be as challenging as flying a plane safely with only a speedometer on the instrument panel. And who in their right mind would want to do that, or even be a passenger on that plane; where altitude, attitude and fuel levels are unknown? Measuring what matters is simply good business.
PRACTISING PURPOSE authentically and on a continuous basis is not easy. It will at times feel uncomfortable, but always meaningful. It may mean bringing up new questions, engaging in difficult conversations about some business aspects, and maybe re-evaluating partners. And these conversations must be honest and authentic. Because saying one thing but doing something else means lost credibility in front of employees and society alike. This is how an ESG framework plays a crucial role, particularly the B Corp™ one. It measures and proves who walks the talk, and to what extent.
