Making a profit and having a positive social impact are no longer mutually exclusive goals in business.
More and more businesses are operating a “triple bottom line”, aiming to benefit society and the environment alongside financial success. We call this the “Impact Economy”.
We see the Impact Economy growing and believe it is the future, so we’ve formed a dedicated Impact Economy practice group, to champion and support this kind of business.
Perhaps you’re a well-established business, realising the commercial value in delivering a positive impact to your people or the environment. You might be an impact investor looking to achieve real social change. Maybe you’re an ambitious start-up looking to embed purpose in every facet of your business. Wherever you sit in the Impact Economy, our multi-disciplinary team can help.
Bates Wells Braithwaite’s unique blend of legal, impact, advisory and compliance expertise allows us to provide holistic advice to Impact Economy businesses. We’re a certified B Corp, so our values are at the centre of what we do, shaping the advice and support we offer to your business.
Whether you need empathetic employment advice informed by your values; real estate lawyers that understand the value of sustainable workplaces and premises; or experts in impact investing and finance, we have the legal expertise to guide you through.
Beyond legal advice, our Impact & Advisory team works with businesses to embed purpose in their strategy and management, as well as creating structures for measuring and managing impact. And our Compliance team helps socially responsible, FCA-regulated businesses to flourish.
As the language of the Impact Economy develops, we’ll add relevant terminology to our Impact Economy Glossary, to help share a common understanding. If you would like to recieve our regular Impact Economy Briefing, please email us.
