Seismic is one of the world’s leading B Corp advisory teams.

Providing best impact, stakeholder returns, customer relationships, investor attraction and talent retention, we use the B Corp framework to create business value from the outset.

52% of businesses fail on their first attempt to certify as a B Corp, whilst 100% of our clients we’ve helped through the framework have certified on their first attempt. Our approach allows your teams to minimise their time input, staying close to the whole process for maximum learning.

We excel in B Corp because we bring together sustainability strategists, communication consultants and carbon experts to extract the most value in the least amount of time, enabling your business to succeed through commercial and environmental activation.

Team discussion


How can my organisation become a B Corp?

To become a certified B Corp, a for-profit business must demonstrate high social and environmental performance by achieving a B Impact Assessment score of 80+. This involves implementing a sustainability strategy, meeting legal requirements and B Lab verification.

What is the B Impact Assessment (BIA)?

It’s a free, confidential online assessment tool businesses must complete in order to become a B Corp. A company must achieve a minimum of 80 points to certify (at Seismic, we suggest a minimum of 85 points). The assessment is completely private to your business until you press submit, and enables companies to measure, manage, and improve their business impact.

How long does it take to become B Corp Certified?

The certification and verification process length varies based on company size and complexity. A small/medium size company could take around 6-8 months, larger multinationals may take longer. Your B Lab application review time depends on how well prepared you are.

Does working with B Corps in your supply chain help your own B Corp scoring?

The B impact Assessment does ask questions about your supply chain, and by choosing B Corp certified suppliers, your score will be positively impacted. However, even if your supplier isn’t B Corp certified, it is still very valuable to work with them to become one. If your business works with its suppliers, providing incentives to become a B Corp, you are eligible to earn additional points on the BIA, creating a wider positive impact as a result.
