B Corp Impact Report

Our second full year of being a certified B Corporation has been characterised by a continued focus on a number of ongoing CSR initiatives as well as incremental enhancements to our practices to align with objectives originally identified during the certification process itself. Among the key benefits we identified when we first embarked upon the B Impact Assessment back in 2022 were validation that our existing initiatives and practices were in line with industry best practice, and identifying areas for improvement; and it therefore makes sense that the initial post-certification phase of celebrating our success in becoming accredited has given way to a period of consolidation and incremental improvements as we gear up towards re-certification in 2025.

Aspect firmly believes in respecting the environment and proactively seeks to reduce its environmental impact. We aim to offset all carbon emissions generated by the firm's travel, including the commutes of employees. Each year an emissions offsetting budget is calculated with the help of Earthly. Employees are also encouraged to play their part by recycling, avoiding unnecessary printing or by using our reusable mugs, lunch boxes and shopping bags for their daily trips to the local shops.

We support Baker Street Quarter, our local business improvement district (BID) who aim to help local businesses to implement collective environmental initiatives such as a shared recycling programme which helps to reduce traffic and emissions in the area.

For the 2023 financial year, we once again offset 110% of our carbon footprint. For the third year in a row we invested in the Rimba Raya Peatland Protection project, a biodiversity project in Borneo which is protecting the land and working with local communities to contribute to all 17 of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, which we do via Earthly, a fellow B Corp.

In order to calculate an appropriate level of carbon offsetting, we categorise our energy usage into Scopes 1, 2 and 3 as defined by the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol, the most widely used international accounting tool.
