BaseKit 2023 Impact Report

In May 2023, BaseKit was absolutely thrilled to be officially accredited as a B Corporation with an impact score of 86.2. We’re excited to publish our 2023 Impact Report which brings to life the work we have done and the impact we have made throughout 2023.

We set a target to reach an unaudited improvement impact score of 100 and we are really proud to have finished 2023 with a total unaudited impact score of 100.3.

BaseKit CEO, Simon Best, said:

“As we continue our exciting B Corp journey, I’m proud of the path we’re forging as a business that has a positive impact on people and the planet. We’re dedicated to sustainability and in particular reducing our carbon footprint as a business and as individuals.

We have started to attract more partners who share our mission to be a force for good and our vision for democratising technology, as well as working with partners in geographies that are typically underserved.

For our people, we are working hard to build a culture with wellbeing at its centre, to ensure everybody has the space and opportunity to be at their best.”

As a B Corp company, we aim to continually embrace our force for good mission and our responsibility to positively impact people and the environment. Over the last 12 months we’ve made progress across all areas of B Corp. Here are some of our highlights:

For me, my highlight was on World Mental Health Day where each of our senior managers talked openly about their personal mental health experiences, or gave their own hints and tips for improving their mental health.

I am incredibly proud of the whole team for their efforts and dedication in helping to put wellbeing and mental health at the core of BaseKit.”
