Forster Communications named ‘Best for the World’ for accountability

Forster Communications has been awarded ‘Best for the World’ status within the B Corp global community, following an assessment from corporate accountability firm B Lab.

The employee-owned agency appears in 2017’s ‘Best for the World Overall’ list of businesses that scored in the top 10% of the world’s 2,100+ certified B Corporations.

Forster was acknowledged on the list for its staff health and wellbeing programme, its environmental policies and its commitment to measuring and evaluating the positive impact of its work.

To certify as B Corporations, companies must complete the B Impact Assessment, which measures a company’s impact on its workers, community, customers and the environment. The answers are then verified by B Lab.

“We have been committed to delivering positive social change since we were founded more than 20 years ago,” said Amanda Powell Smith, Forster Communications CEO. “We are immensely proud to have recognition of what Forster is all about – delivering outstanding work for clients whilst improving the communities in which we all live and work.”

She continued: “I believe the PR industry would benefit hugely from more agencies going for B Corp status – those who can’t walk the ethical talk are going to get left behind.”

Jay Coen Gilbert, B Lab co-founder, added: “Companies like Forster Communications exemplify what it means for a business to be a good citizen. We’re proud to recognize their achievement.

“’Best for the World’ is the only list of businesses making the greatest positive impact that uses comprehensive, comparable, third-party-validated data about a company’s social and environmental performance.”
