Economies and societies operate within our biosphere. Each layer is interdependent with the others.
For that, we need an equal commitment to economic, social and environmental wellbeing for people and planet.

Business leaders can be ambitious and lead the way through a just transition to a wellbeing economy for Scotland.

One of the best tools around to help you do that is the B Corp accreditation.
B Corps meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance.
B Corps are legally committed to consider the impact of their decisions on all their stakeholders, people AND planet, not just shareholders.
