Lead Tech has achieved B Corp certification

Lead Tech is proud to announce that it has achieved B Corp certification. This certification is a significant milestone for the company, as it confirms our commitment to social and environmental responsibility alongside profit. Lead Tech joins the ranks of other inspirational B Corps such as Patagonia, Ben and Jerry's, and Innocent who have demonstrated their dedication to creating a positive impact.  

The B Corp certification is awarded to businesses who meet rigorous social and environmental standards and choose to change their corporate structure to be legally accountable to all stakeholders, not just shareholders.  

This certification covers five key impact areas: 

  1. Governance,  
  2. Workers,  
  3. Community,  
  4. Environment, 
  5. Customers,  

It requires applicants to reach a benchmark score of 80 or more. Companies must provide evidence of socially and environmentally responsible practices such as energy supplies, waste and water use, worker compensation, diversity, and corporate transparency.  

Lead Tech's B Corp certification is a testament to our steadfast commitment to social and environmental responsibility. The certification process was conducted by B Lab, the not-for-profit behind the B Corp movement, which confirms Lead Tech's long-term dedication to making a positive impact. 

Paul Walsh and Nigel Borwell, Lead Tech Joint CEOs commented:  

“From the day we started Lead Tech in 2008, our focus has been on much more than the bottom line. Yes, we’ve pushed ourselves to become the standout lead generation partner for the UK financial services industry but never by putting profit ahead of people. We’re motivated by business as a force for good and the positive impact firms like ours can have on our communities and the environment so achieving B Corp certification is not only a significant step in our journey but a huge honour for Lead Tech.” 

Chris Turner, Executive Director of B Lab UK, says: 

“We are delighted to welcome Lead Tech to the B Corp community. This is a movement of companies who are committed to changing how business operates and believe business really can be a force for good. We know that Lead Tech are going to be a fantastic addition to the community and will continue driving the conversation forward”.  

“We are pleased to have B Corps of all shapes and sizes as part of our community – from startups to multinationals and across many different industries. Business is a powerful force and B Corps demonstrate that you can do good in any sector. Welcoming Lead Tech is an exciting moment because they have an opportunity to lead the way within the lead generation industry. We and the rest of the B Corp community are really pleased to support Lead Tech in paving the way for a new way of doing things”.
