LI NW Landscapes Beyond COP26 – Planit-IE’s B Corp Journey


Certified B Corporations are a new kind of business, that balance purpose and profit. These businesses are driving a global movement of using business as a force for good.

Planit-IE will be providing a snapshot into what life is like as a certified B Corp, the opportunities it has provided, the challenges they have faced, and all the lessons learnt along the way.
