B Corp Recertification

Recertification helps keep certified B Corps accountable to maintaining and improving their organisational impact. As one of the world’s leading B Corp advisory teams, we strategically and pragmatically support businesses in their recertification journey.

B Corp

Seismic partners with organisations to create recertification success.

B Corp recertification involves a rigorous assessment of a company’s social and environmental performance every three years. As organisations and their teams evolve over time, this can present new challenges in maintaining and improving performance and preparing for the recertification process.

We understand the complexities of recertification, Seismic partners with businesses to ensure the journey is successful, impactful and enjoyable. 

Our approach focuses on creating an updated view of how the business is performing through a B Corp lens and develops an actionable roadmap towards recertification. We strive not just to maintain your B Impact Assessment (BIA) score, but challenge and guide to significantly improve it and embed good practices in the centre of your business. This approach drives credibility and deepens organisational impact.

With a focus on rapid guidance and empowerment, we work closely with teams to prepare for BIA submission.

Often the responsibility of the B Impact Assessment (BIA) has shifted ownership since the last certification period. Our B Corp experts provide comprehensive guidance to create a clear action plan, creating accurate and impactful change that ensures everyone is up to speed.

Getting prepared for recertification often requires a sprint to gather the required information. Our approach supports businesses to overcome this challenge, offering rapid guidance and advice to ensure clarity of direction and confidence in the required next steps in as little as six weeks.

Our partnership with B Lab Europe means we’re close to the roots of the movement, and the breadth of our experience across all sectors and business sizes, ensures a deep understanding of the recertification process and what it means for your business.
