We are exceptionally proud to announce (and shout from the rooftops!) that Sladen Consulting is now a Certified B Corporation®, joining a global community of businesses measuring our social and environmental impact.     

As an organisation we have always believed that we need to be more than just a money making enterprise. That is why we already put 2% of our turnover into the Sladen Butterfly Fund, which supports organisations who are furthering the cause of our two chosen United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (Clean Water and Sanitation, and Life below water). But this alone isn’t enough, as a business that challenges itself to help create sustainable cultures, where people thrive, we wanted to walk the walk, not just talk the talk.  

To us this meant joining a community of organisations who are reinventing business by pursuing purpose as well as profit, it meant aiming to become a Certified B Corporation.  

With an aim to transform the global economy into an inclusive, equitable and regenerative economic system, the B Corpmovement puts people and the planet on an equal footing to profit. It wants to conduct business in a way that understands that we are each dependent upon another and thus responsible for each other and future generations.  

Sladen Consulting Certified B Corporation Stamp

At Sladen Consulting we have always put people first and Sustainability is one of our five Guiding Beliefs which sit at the core of everything we do. To be a B Corporation requires more than that. It requires us to be the change that we seek in the world and to influence others to do the same. To consider more than just profit in all our business decisions and respect not just the communities that we work within but also the planet on which we all live.  

We worked long and hard to meet the exacting standards set by the B Corporation and that is why we are overjoyed to share the news that Sladen Consulting has now been certified by B Lab®, a non-profit that serves a global movement of people using business as a force for good. We have met rigorous social and environmental standards which represent our commitment to goals outside of shareholder profit. We join a thriving community of 6,279 businesses globally who have certified as B Corps. 

But the work doesn’t stop here, we are continuing to strive for Net Zero, working hard to reach out, through the Butterfly Fund, to support more and more purposeful organisations, and will continue to advance the cause and raise awareness of the B Corp Movement.  

We want to help to redefine what success in business means, a system that no longer concentrates wealth and power but one that benefits all.
