A note from our CEO, Josh…
As many of you know, at Regency we’ve been on a mission – not only to become a leading creative agency, but to do it with passion and purpose. Today we take one step closer to achieving this goal – today, we become B Corp Certified!
But let’s take this back to the beginning… How did we get here, and why does it matter?
Well, I wasn’t really ever that competitive at school. You’d usually find me running away from the rugby ball rather than chasing it. I once took part in a maths quiz to calculate how high Nelson’s column was in Trafalgar square using trigonometry – which I actually won (but later found out it was because nobody else entered and my answer was well off).
“It ignited a deep passion within me for purpose-driven projects, especially those focused on global sustainability.”
However, in 2006, I won outright a competition that aimed to promote global recycling. I remember having put so much effort into the presentation on a topic that fascinated me so much. Reminiscing on that time period not only brings memories of how curly my hair used to be, but it also served as a significant eye-opener regarding the issues we faced on global recycling. It ignited a deep passion within me for purpose-driven projects, especially those focused on global sustainability.
That competition marked the beginning of a lifelong commitment to projects that aim to make the world a better place.
I don’t by any means think B Corp is the silver bullet of good business – but it’s a start. Much like minimum living wage these requirements should be the baseline of any business. And I’d be lying if I said it’s been a walk in the park – it hasn’t. We’ve been forced to question our own ethics, principals and processes and then those of our suppliers and our clients. But we always kept in mind that driving positive change doesn’t always come easily and we’re so pleased we’re staying true to core values of sustainability, ethics, and social responsibility.
