Why B Corp?
Certified B-Corps meet high standards of verified social and environmental performance and are legally committed to consider the impact of their decisions on all stakeholders, not just shareholders.
Comprehensive impact analysis – very broad and suitable for any industry, country or company size
Legal change – it’s not just an audit or certification; it’s a Board commitment to measure, manage and improve impact over time
Global Community – over 6000 companies globally working together, sharing best practise and advocating for the growth of this global movement
Employees – many studies show a generational shift in employees that want to work for companies aligned to their own values making B-Corp a useful engagement tool to improve employee satisfaction and fulfilment.
Investors – there’s a growing acknowledgement within financial services of the risk in not engaging in the climate crisis and the reputational risk of antisocial companies – integrating impact assessment into company audits will become the norm.
Consumers – 32% of consumers say they are willing to pay more for products committing to positive social/environmental impact and 68% of consumers say building trust should be the highest business priority.
Stronger financial performance – companies with sound environmental and social performance are increasingly more sound financially.

"I came to Mehalah for support to apply for B Corp status for my business, keen to build a regenerative business. I decided to work with Mehalah because I was impressed by her varied work experience and purpose. Not only have I worked with Mehalah on becoming B Corp certified, but she has also been my business/personal coach to create greater clarity for over a year. Mehalah creates a safe, friendly, purpose-led environment and helped me build clarity on my business, supported the launch of some radical (and purpose-led) products, assisted in realigning my values, and gave me a feeling of infinite possibilities. Overall, what I achieved from working with Mehalah was fresh ideas, fresh clients, and fresh insights into my infinite, radical wisdom and richness. Mehalah is a joy to work with, and I am proud of what we’re achieving together in interdependence. I would wholeheartedly recommend Mehalah Beckett to any professional or organisation who wishes to ignite some magnificence, mindfulness, and meaning into their work with a mighty, purpose-driven, joyful coach.”
