B Corp pending within a month of engagement
B Corp education and planning
B Corp for early-stage startup
“It’s been a pleasure working with Future Shift for the B corp pending for startups. The sessions were all really well structured, outlining the B Corp and what a business such as mine should be doing to achieve the score required to pass.”
Kaye Wannerton, Founder
We knew Kaye, the founder of Ekologik from life before Future Shift which began conversations in 2021. Ekologik is a sustainable cleaning product supplier. They were interested in achieving B Corp Pending status due to the fact that they had less that 1 year of trading accounts. For suppliers of goods, it is important that the supply chain ethics side of one's operations are as watertight as possible because there can be a lot of risks in this space - this was a focal point of the engagement.
We used the 4-week baselining service to run through the B Impact Assessment methodically. Through these sessions we covered the trickier definitions that are buried within the BIA, which we see with a lot of certifying companies as a principle barrier to a smooth and painless B Corp certification journey. Using the sessions, we were able to baseline a passing score and complete the Impact Assessment, which is a prerequisite to receiving the B Corp pending status.
