Global events agency emc3 has announced that it has been certified as a B Corporation (B Corp). This means that the business has been certified by B Lab as having met the highest verifiable social and environmental standards and its commitment to pursuing purpose alongside profit.
CEO Alistair Graham said: “Eighteen months ago, we onboarded a dedicated Sustainability Consultant, reflecting our long-standing vision and commitment to a sustainable future for events. This certification is a hugely welcome step on our sustainability journey, and I’m incredibly proud of everyone at emc3 for helping us achieve B Corp status, one of a small number of events agencies to do so.
“Company culture is at the heart of everything we do at emc3 and becoming a B Corp is a reflection on the way we operate internally as well as externally – putting our people first, always.”
emc3 now joins the UK B Corp community, comprising over 1,500 companies including well-known brands such as, innocent, Patagonia, The Body Shop and organic food pioneers Abel & Cole.
This certification further cements emc3’s commitment to operate as a force for good, following on from its role as a founding member of isla, the independent events sustainability body and its partnership with JUST ONE Tree, the non-profit Ecosystem Restoration initiative.
