‘Cooper Parry helped us with the completion of our first B Corp assessment, after the employee leading the project left the business. They provided a colleague to assist with finalising the entry, the submission of evidence and the verification interview. Oakland has an existing relationship with Cooper Parry and they were the first partners considered when we realised we needed some support with the B Corp process.

Overall, the process was relatively straightforward and the knowledge and experience of how B Corp works was valuable in helping us avoid pitfalls on the interview. Appropriate challenges were raised to the assessor which ensured that the questioning remained on track and ambiguity was avoided during the final interview in particular.

Cooper Parry took a ‘critical friend’ approach to the exercise which helped focus attention on areas where the application was strongest. This played a big part in us achieving certification and successfully evidencing areas where the assessor challenged. We would certainly recommend that anyone preparing a B Corp application or similar should consider using Cooper Parry to help with the process.’
