Certified B Corporation®

We’re proud to be a Certified B Corporation ®


B Corp Certification means that Opencast is part of a global community of businesses that meet high standards of social and environmental impact. These standards are set out by independent body B Lab and cover social and environmental performance, public transparency and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose.

Opencast’s purpose is to make life better through the power of people and technology. We have committed to a clear social impact approach to enable us to have a positive impact on society through solutions that are simpler, more sustainable and fairer for all.

Our B Corp Certification is just one part of this but it’s important for us that we are independently assessed to know that we truly are doing good for our people, clients, communities and the planet.

In the B Impact assessment, Opencast has earned an overall score of 89.8.

As a Certified B Corporation®, we’re committed, both legally and morally, to consider and report on five areas of impact: community, customers, environment, governance and workers.


The assessment considers our governance structures, processes, and practices in light of our stakeholders’ interests and the ethos of the B Corp movement. It includes how we make decisions that consider all stakeholders, not just shareholders. This aligns with us signing up to the Better Business Act.


‘Workers’ assesses the experience our people have while working at Opencast. It includes Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, culture and management. It considers how we’re building a healthy culture and enabling our people to thrive.


‘Customers’ assesses our relationship and stewardship of our clients and partners, and the impact our work has on the communities they serve. It considers how far we collaborate with our clients to do good things for people and planet, as well as deliver on their own organisational goals.


‘Community’ assesses our understanding and relationship to our community and those connected with Opencast - including our people, clients and their end users. It considers our impact with volunteering, our pro bono work, and our clients’ impact. It includes our offices and physical spaces, as well as ensuring we do no harm when delivering our work.


This area of impact assesses our environmental management system, including our decarbonisation efforts towards Net Zero. It considers how we build sustainability into everything we do.

Proud to be a B Corporation ®

As a B Corp in the technology industry, we’re counted among businesses that are leading a global movement for an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economy.

Why B Corp?

Being a Certified B Corporation® formalises social goals as key business objectives. It’s a way of enabling us to firm up our commitments – to track and improve so that we are working to be a better company and making life better for our people, our clients and our communities.

Being a Certified B Corp is a huge statement of intent for us which formalises our social impact goals as key business objectives. In a world with huge environmental and social challenges, working simply to maximise shareholder profit is no longer enough. B Corp Certification is confirmation that Opencast is a force for social change and with priorities on sustainability, supply chain excellence and people engagement, this is a significant milestone on our journey, but it is not the final destination.

Tom Lawson, CEO

Becoming a B Corp is the embodiment of Opencast’s long-standing maxim ‘Do the right thing’. It also represents the beginning of the next phase of being a purpose-driven business in line with our social impact strategy. We strongly believe that the business community must contribute to health, inclusion and wellbeing, places and planet, and a fairer economy and society. We are excited to share the next phase with our clients, partners and friends.
