We Are A Cornish Graphic Design Studio Setting A Gold Standard
We’ve only gone and done it again!
For the second time this year our small Cornish graphic design studio has earned a spot on the B Corporation ‘Best For The World List’ in the newly formed ‘changemakers’ category.
Pause for celebratory dance…
As a team we are all delighted to gain a hat-trick of ‘Best For The World’ achievements, twice under the ‘workers’ category and now our recent ‘changemakers’ acknowledgement where Leap was one of nine UK fellow B Corpers to achieve the changemaking status.
Leap’s awesome Founder & Creative Director Matt Hocking shares his thoughts on the recent changemaking news…
“Making the ‘Best For The World’ Changemakers list, wonderfully unexpected but fuels our belief that we should never stop learning, evolving and measuring what matters. As individuals, as a creative business, as citizens of this one amazing planet and why being a B Corp is the way to go for all businesses to be part of this amazing world changing community.”
What does Best For The World: Changemakers mean?
To certify as B Corporations, each company must complete a comprehensive, independent assessment and have their answers verified by B Lab and recertify every three years. The Best for the World: Changemakers list honours the improvement made by B Corporations from one certification to the next.
Honourees making significant improvements in their B Impact score set a gold standard for the impact a company can make in the world.
What improvements did we make at the studio?
We are always on a mission to make positive change and doing good for the studio, people and the planet. That’s why being apart of B Corporation, an organisation that allows you to measure what matters is the perfect fit for us here at the studio.
After re-certifying back in 2016, we were delighted to increase our B Impact Assessment score from 103 (2013) to 112.4. Within the B Impact Assessment, which measures a company’s impact on its governance, workers, community, customers and the environment via a point scoring system, we made positive improvements within the governance, environment and customers sections of the assessment.
Who are these changemaking companies?
The 203 companies on the Best For The World: Changemakers list come from 66 different industries and 16 countries, a few of which include Patagonia, Elvis & Kresse, Ecosia, Shoremount, New Citizenship Project and Charity Bank.
A huge congrats to everyone who made it on to the list! Sending lots of Leap love to you and the rest of our amazing B Corp community.
