Gill Pipkin Consulting has been accepted to Pending Certified B Corporation status, and will be working towards full certification over the next 12 months.
B Corp businesses are for-profit companies certified by the non-profit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.
