We’re incredibly proud to be able to say that we’re a Certified B Corp organisation.
This status is awarded to companies that use the power of business to help solve social and environmental challenges. In essence, trying to make the world a better place!
“A lot of companies are talking about the idea of “purpose” at the moment. At AKFP our stated purpose is to “Make a difference to people’s lives”, so it’s important to us that we can demonstrate to our clients, our team and the companies we work with that we are doing more than just talking – we are actually acting on things like our working practices, how we recruit, our environmental performance and how we support local communities.
We see it as a natural extension to the industry-specific BS 8577 & ISO 22222 Best Practice Awards we have achieved annually for the last six years. We were proud to be the first Chartered Financial Planning firm in NI to have these industry awards, and are just as proud to be the first Chartered Financial Planning firm in NI to be a Certified B Corp.” Roger Kennedy, Director, AKFP.
We firmly believe that people no longer want to only work for and with an organisation, but a cause they care about. We aspire to challenge the generic perception of financial services.
In B Corporation’s own words:
“Certified B Corporations are leaders in the global movement for an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economy. Unlike other certifications for businesses, B Lab is unique in our ability to measure a company’s entire social and environmental impact.”
This is exactly why we’re so proud to be a certified B Corp organisation and will continue to try and make the world a better place.
