Achieving B Corp™ status is a clear and strong demonstration of a firm’s commitment to being sustainable and socially conscious, and as accountants, business and wealth advisers we are more than proud to announce we are one of few in our sector that have achieved this accreditation.

Andrew Griggs, Senior Partner, said: “This is a significant achievement for the firm and a milestone in our journey of being a purpose-led advisory firm. It is a formal recognition of the efforts we continue to make to have a positive impact on clients, our people and the communities in which we work with strong governance.”

Jennifer Williamson, a Partner who has been instrumental in the firm’s journey towards B Corp™ accreditation adds: “We are part of a global movement that recognises the need to balance profits with purpose. The firm has a clear purpose – to guide our clients, colleagues and communities to a brighter future – and B Corp™ status puts this into an independently verified framework.”

“It sets us apart from our competitors, demonstrating to current and future colleagues and clients that we are a firm that chooses to do the right thing.”

There are over 6,000 certified B Corps™ across 159 industry sectors in 89 countries. To achieve certification, we had to undertake a rigorous and independently verified assessment that encompassed our entire social and environmental performance, from supply chain and input materials to charitable giving and employee benefits. We are required to meet high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability with recertification every three years.

Chris Turner, Executive Director of B Lab UK, says “We are delighted to welcome Kreston Reeves to the B Corp™ community. This is a movement of companies who are committed to changing how business operates and believe business really can be a force for good. We know that Kreston Reeves are going to be a fantastic addition to the community and will continue driving the conversation forward”.

“We are pleased to have B Corps™ of all shapes and sizes as part of our community – from startups to multinationals and across many different industries. Business is a powerful force and B Corps™ demonstrate that you can do good in any sector. Welcoming Kreston Reeves is an exciting moment because they have an opportunity to lead the way within the Accountancy industry. We and the rest of the B Corp™ community are really pleased to support Kreston Reeves in paving the way for a new way of doing things”.

“Being able to welcome Kreston Reeves to the B Corp™ community is hugely exciting. Their commitment to doing business differently will be an inspiration to others and really help spread the idea that we can redefine success in business to be as much about people and planet as it is about profit”.
