Amazing news: Warwick Events is now a Certified B Corporation™

This makes us the second event agency in the UK to become a certified B Corp™

Putting it very simply, we want to do GOOD business. Having a positive social, cultural and environmental impact is fundamental to our ethos. 

When you get proficient at something, one of the best things to see how you are doing is to take a test. So, you get a measure for how good you really are. From these results, you can immediately see what you are doing right and where you are going wrong. So that’s what we did. We took the B Corp Assessment to measure Warwick Events’ performance in five categories: governance, workers, customers, community and the environment.

With over 80 questions challenging you on your business practice, this is a rigorous process. It confirmed where we were doing well and highlighted where we could do better. With intense reflection, we made improvements and changes. Some were easy to make (the no-brainers), others were much more challenging and frustrating. But as a team we’ve already learned both personally and professionally doing the right thing is not easy, so we were prepared for the hard graft. 

You need to achieve a minimum of 80 on the B Corporation Impact Assessment to be considered for certification. The next stage is the most brutal: the verification process. This is when you need to prove you walk the talk; giving in-depth evidence for your answers. Yep, it’s cross-examination time! It is only after you’ve been interviewed by your assessor and all your supporting materials have been reviewed that you find out if you have made the grade, and very few do. We are so proud to be one of the companies in the UK who are Certified B Corps.

Certification is only the beginning. Just like us, all B Corporations are on a journey, learning to be better every day. So that in three years’ time, when we need to recertify we do so with a higher score, knowing we keep pushing our boundaries.

We are proud to be part of this incredible community driving positive change. 

On certifying, you might be interested to read what we signed: the B Corp Declaration of Interdependence.

We envision a global economy that uses business as a force for good. This economy is comprised of a new type of corporation – the B Corporation – which is purpose-driven and creates benefit for all stakeholders, not just shareholders. As Certified B Corporations and leaders of this emerging economy, we believe:

That we must be the change we seek in the world.
That all business ought to be conducted as if people and place mattered.
That, through their products, practices, and profits, businesses should aspire to do no harm and benefit all.
To do so requires that we act with the understanding that we are each dependent upon another and thus responsible for each other and future generations.
