We have always strived to provide a positive change to our communities and the environment but we have never had such a valuable means of measuring our impact. Becoming a B Corp embodies our firm’s commitment to our communities and the environment. It has also provided us with an opportunity to demonstrate leadership for social change.

The Change We Seek®

Lantern Legal Group's journey to become a Certified B Corp has given them the opportunity to review and realign their company policies and procedures to ensure that they promote best practice and social cohesion within the workplace and the wider community. In becoming a B Corp they hope to continue to improve their impact in their communities and the environment, and inspire other businesses to do the same.

Lantern Legal Group seeks a future where B Corp certification becomes the norm and all businesses understand that good business isn’t just about profit for shareholders but is also about creating value for all stakeholders, including employees, customers and the wider community.
