B-Corp – recognising sustainable business

Certified B Corporations are a new kind of company committed to meeting rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability with the goal of redefining success in business.

We think that the process of BCorp certification is a highly effective independent tool that can be used to assess the social health of your organisation. Whether you are looking to get a quick snapshot or move all the way to full BCorp certification, we can help you navigate the process to deliver value.

Go to http://bcorporation.com.au/ for more information about certification, or talk to us about how we can help.

Litre of Light

imagesWe are so excited to see the Liter of Light Team win the 2015 Future Energy Prize in the NPO/ NGO Category.  Liter of Light is an innovative project providing light to thousands of people without access to electricity with nothing more than water, a plastic bottle and a bleach tablet.

“Liter of Light is an open source energy program using shared strength of partnerships around the world to find available technologies and community skills building. The Liter of Light is both a day and night solution that provides passive daylight as well as charged evening solar lights such as lanterns, house lights, and streetlights through local skills building and sourcing electronic parts for building the products at the base of the pyramid instead of merely retailing imported finished products.”

Lynette had the pleasure of introducing this project to the Indochina Starfish Foundation in 2012 who adopted it to provide light for families in their community.
