This achievement means that Spark scored in the top 10% of all Certified B Corps on the B Impact Assessment. Only 515 businesses from over 30 countries made the list, so naturally we’re stoked to be on it! The rigorous Assessment is based around 5 categories including how we operate, how we treat our staff and our environmental and social impact. The Best for the World list recognises top performers and inspires more businesses to follow in our footsteps.
“There are those among us who are leading the way. There is a global movement of people using the power of business to achieve a higher purpose than profit maximization—they harness the power of business to solve social and environmental problems; they strive to use business as a force for good: good for workers, good for communities, good for the environment. They redefine success in business by competing to be not just best in the world, but best for the world.” – Jay Coen Gilbert, Co-Founder of B Lab.
Since becoming a B Corp over a year ago, we have been so lucky to work with an array of clients from all different sectors who are doing amazing things for the world. This exciting achievement would not have been possible without YOU. So, thank you!

And to all the other honourees on the list, a huge congratulations! We’re in awe of what you do. Thank you for building a community that creates such incredible impact.
We live in a society not just an economy, and this society has problems that can be fixed through the right ideas and efforts. Companies donating their efforts have the capability to create substantial impact. More than any one individual could. We became a B Corp because we believe the success of an organisation is no longer measured in dollars. Ethical accountability is becoming ingrained into business practice and the more this expands the better the world will become. Businesses are an untapped resource and the B Corp movement has found a way to let it flow.
