Transforming
your business into a force for good

The world is changing fast. Climate change, resource scarcity and social inequality are part of today’s business landscape.

Stakeholders expect business to be part of the solution to these challenges – and those who don’t embrace this new agenda will be left behind.

About

Is your business future-proof?

If you’re a business leader under pressure to deliver profit with purpose, embed environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues or future-proof your company, one thing is certain: this century’s challenges won’t be solved by traditional corporate thinking.

Impact Advisors is not a traditional consultancy, and we don’t think like one. We’re a global group of Certified B Corporations (B Corps) with unrivalled expertise in helping companies adapt for success in the new economy. We offer a flexible structure and deep, complementary expertise to find innovative and pragmatic solutions for every business.

Between us, we’ve helped over 100 organisations to improve their impact, build resilience and respond to new opportunities.

Don’t let the world change without you. Let us help you turn today’s challenges into tomorrow’s opportunities.

Projects

Driving positive impact

Helping The Body Shop certify as a B Corp

For over a year, Junxion worked closely with a small team at The Body Shop, leading them through 15 separate but linked B Impact Assessments covering their operations around the world. We engaged deeply with The Body Shop’s product development process to match it with B Corp requirements around ‘impact business models’. After this rigorous and demanding process, The Body Shop became the first UK-based multinational business to certify as a B Corporation in September 2019.

Raising the bar at Carlsberg Group

One Stone provides challenge and support for Carlsberg Group’s ground-breaking Together Towards Zero sustainability strategy and communications. Working closely with their sustainability team, we were instrumental in the Group’s early adoption, in 2017, of a Science Based Target for zero carbon emissions by 2030. Our SDG and communications expertise also proved essential in developing their SDG strategy and five sustainability reports, awarded for clarity and transparency.

Driving environmental best practice at Grant Thornton

Green Element has worked with audit, tax and advisory firm Grant Thornton LLP since 2014 to support carbon reduction across their UK offices. With our support, Grant Thornton has rolled out the internationally recognised environmental management certification ISO 14001 across its 40+ UK offices, and saved £1.89 million in utilities, travel and paper use in the first year alone.

Supporting innocent on their journey to use business as a force for good

Seismic provided advisory and project management services to support Innocent on their B Corp journey, resulting in B Corp certification in 2018. The team have continued to partner with Innocent as they have embedded the B Corp framework across their organisation and operations. Innocent has now become champions of the movement to leverage business as a force for good.

Shifting the impact dial at Vegetarian Express

Greenheart Consulting applied its tried and tested impact improvement process to build VE’s social and environmental performance from industry norm to certified B Corp. Embedded alongside the company’s executive team and impact investor owners, we project-managed both improvements and certification.
