Serious about being ethical and socially responsible, Warwick Events achieves B Corp status

Warwick Events Certified B Corporation for MPI - Jess Blackwall

By: Hannah Lee | Feb 14, 2022

Warwick Events has become the second event agency in the UK to become a Certified B Corporation®.

B Corporations (or B Corp™ as they are often called) are for-profit companies that are committed to delivering on positive change. This change is built on true innovation.

A company cannot simply become a B Corp through self-assignation; they must achieve a specific standard on the B Impact Assessment. The rigorous, independent assessment requires businesses to score highly in five key areas: governance, workers, customers, community and the environment.

On asking why they decided to start the B Corp assessment, Warwick Events’ Founding Director Emma Wellstead said ‘We want to be the best. The best for our clients; our participants; our suppliers; our employees; our community and the planet. Going through this rigorous, independent long assessment helped us learn how we’re doing on this journey. It has taken over 18 months and we have been judged against the most challenging standards of ethical and social behaviour - we are so thrilled we passed, joining over 4,400 businesses in the global B Corp community including Ben and Jerry’s, The Body Shop, Patagonia, Coutts, Innocent and Danone.’

‘Lots of companies have a ‘values’ page or a sustainability policy and it is difficult to see the difference between a good company and good marketing. Our B Corp status proves that our events and work have a positive impact.’

‘Becoming a B Corp helps us continue to build regeneration and sustainability into our clients’ events. It also gives reassurance to our clients that whatever event objectives they have, they need not come at the expense of the planet. We look forward to sharing what we are doing with the wider event community. We’d be delighted to support anyone who wants to learn more, become more accountable and make important positive changes.’
