In just under a year, DEPT® has gone from becoming a Certified B Corporation® to being recognised as one of the Best for the World™ B Corps of 2022, putting it in the top 5% of B Corps in its size range around the world.

Every year, B Lab recognises the top-performing B Corps creating great impact through their businesses, naming them Best for the World™ across the five impact areas evaluated on the B Impact Assessment: community; customers; environment; governance; and workers. 

DEPT® has been recognised in the governance category after achieving a top score for its overall mission, ethics, accountability and transparency, as well as embodying what it means to use business as a force for good. 

It is only one of four B Corps with more than 1,000 employees to be recognised in its category, and one of 20 companies of its size group to be recognised across all five lists. 

B Lab says that businesses are recognised as being Best for the World™ in governance for demonstrating how “their best practices are focused on how they engage employees, board members, and the community to achieve their mission, as well as employee access to financial information, customers’ opportunities to provide feedback, and the diversity of their governing bodies.”

Pooja Dindigal, Global Impact Manager at DEPT®, said: “As a Certified B Corporation®, DEPT® already meets the high standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose, but to be recognised as a top performer within our first year makes us incredibly proud.

“This achievement proves that aspiring to be the best agency both in and for the world is a winning strategy, and we’re honoured to be recognised for leading the way in using business as a force for good to transform the global economy to benefit all people, communities and the planet.”

Initiatives that have supported DEPT®’s success include becoming a Climate Neutral certified company for the second year in a row, hiring a Global Impact Manager to accelerate sustainability and DE&I initiatives, and offsetting our current carbon emissions through Terra Neutra, which includes supporting offsetting projects which are a wind farm in Turkey and a reforestation project in Uganda. 

Earlier this year, DEPT® was also recognised for its impactful project work at the inaugural Anthem Awards (an offshoot of the Webby Awards), taking home seven trophies for its purposeful and mission-driven work for companies including Patagonia, Indigo AG and the Eurovision Song Contest. To name just a few. 

We hope that DEPT® can inspire other businesses to join the B Corp movement and make a positive impact on the world. We are living proof that you can be the best for the world on your journey to being the best in the world.
