Berkhamsted’s First Independent B Corp

Waggle B Corp Image Team

Waggle Design Ltd (Waggle), a creative graphic design agency, is proud to announce that it is a certified B Corporation (B Corp), the first in Berkhamsted, and one of the 2,000 UK companies joining a global movement that are reinventing business for the benefit of the all people and the planet.

Waggle started its B Corp journey back in January 2023 after noticing more interest in sustainable business in its industry and it being an opportunity to demonstrate the Company’s core business values around doing better business. They submitted their B Impact Assessment (BIA) in July that year and received verification in early 2024. Waggle became certified on 5 February 2024 with 86 points across the five main impact areas; Governance, Workers, Community, Environment and Customers.

The B Corp certification assesses the entirety of a business’ operations across the five impact areas. It is a rigorous process, requiring companies to achieve a minimum of 80 points in the BIA and provide evidence of responsible practices relating to energy supply, waste and water usage, work compensation, diversity, and corporate transparency. A business must also legally embed their commitment to purpose as well as to profit.

Waggle’s highest scoring impact area is Workers (33.5), followed by Community (22) and Governance (18.5) benchmarking them high above their peers in these areas based on company size and sector. For example, Waggle offers a wide range of benefits to all staff on joining, irrespective of part or full time, including additional paid leave for ‘Adventure Days’ to pursue a hobby or extra time to shop the local street market each week.

Natalie Beecroft, Marketing and Operations Director at Waggle said, ‘We are so proud to be a B Corp. It’s recognition of the hard work that we do as a company to do better business for our stakeholders including the environment. The process has enabled us to set the foundations and expectations for the business as we move forward. Becoming certified is just the beginning of this journey and we are so excited to see where it takes us and the good that Waggle can do not only in our local community, but wider reaches too.’

If any business, large or small (even sole traders can apply for certification) would like to find out more about Waggle’s B Corp journey, their experience or ambitions, please get in touch with Natalie Beecroft via their website ( or on LinkedIn.
