Better Together: committing to what we believe in
NEWS | June 8th 2023
For 15 years we have worked with ground-breaking charities, organisations and individuals focused on tackling societies big challenges. As part of our ongoing commitment to use technology as a force for good we are proud to announce we are a Certified B-Corp and a member of 1% for the Planet.
“We know that because we donate pro bono hours, gift in kind and fundraise for our smaller, yet harder hitting clients, that the people we work with can do the things that would otherwise be beyond their resources.
Creating positive change and taking action is what Digital Wonderlab is all about. We are good people – we care about each other, our community, our wider society and our planet, so we’ve cemented this by becoming part of two leading global movements”
Nathan Baranowski, CEO of Digital Wonderlab
The B Corp Movement is one that we have watched with interest for a while, 5 years to be precise – of course they are clearly aligned to our values, yet capacity meant that we focused on the doing, not the accounting.
For us being a Certified B Corp commits us legally to placing planet and people before profit, whilst challenging us to be an even better business through the robust assessment process and goals tracker to focus on what matters to us as a team and our clients.
It’s about always working to be better and taking collective action to drive positive change.
Last year, was a hard-hitting reality of what is happening to our planet. Giving at least 1% of our revenue to causes that support regenerating and averting climate catastrophes is simply a no brainer and we’re looking forward to supporting local and international charity partners on this.
Last year we donated £60,000 in discounted revenue to charities and no-for-profits and delivered 1476 hours in pro bono work. We also enabled the charities that we work with to raise over £350,000 in digital donations.
92% of our portfolio are impact-led projects but we know there is more that we can do and more that needs to be done.
These are just a few of our commitments to elevate the impact we make in the world.
There's more to come so watch this space, but in the meantime, we could not be prouder to join forces with others who have chosen the path of ethical business.
By working with others who have chosen the same path, we aim to use our funds to deliver even greater impact.
