Resource Futures has announced that it has become a Certified B Corp, part of a global movement to redefine success in business.

At an event to mark its ten-year anniversary, CEO, Sam Reeve, announced that it would be joining nearly 2,000 B Corporations from more than 130 industries in 50 countries using business as a force for good.

The Bristol-based sustainable resource management consultancy is committed to creating value for society and doing business in a way that not only brings about economic success but also addresses our most challenging environmental problems.

CEO Sam Reeve, says of the growing community: “We’re delighted to join other purpose-driven businesses and are proud to have created a company where we focus on the positive impact of our work on people and the planet as well as on profit. We truly believe that working to higher standards of transparency, accountability, and performance, is a better way to do business.”

Resource Futures has worked with hundreds of organisations across the public, private and third sector over the years in managing and communicating more sustainable and profitable resource management practices. Some of the companies longest standing clients include WRAP, AkzoNobel and Devon County Council – where the consultancy has supported on everything from technical reports around HWRC procurement, to setting up and supporting the 70-strong Community RePaint network, to delivering education in schools to support curriculum led learning around environment issues.

Sam continued: “We have a huge opportunity in the resource management industry to work together to bring about lasting positive and impactful change. Combining all of our expertise across the industry – from data, insight and engagement – could transform the way that people and businesses manage their resources in the years ahead.”

Other well-known companies in Bristol that are part of the B Corp community include Triodos Bank, Pukka Herbs and Neighbourly.
