Protecting our mission
As a Certified B Corporation, we have a legal obligation to consider the impact of our decisions on all our stakeholders, not just our shareholders. This is enshrined in our company’s governing documents. This legal framework applies to all B Corps, and is designed to help us protect our mission for the long term.
In addition, we an ambitious plan for the future ownership of our business. 90% of our staff are already shareholders in EQ, and part of the business is owned by our sister charity the EQ Foundation. We’ve set this up to ensure that as we grow, our commercial interests stay aligned with those of our clients (and of all our staff) – and so that a portion of our profits is donated to charitable causes.
