Certified B Corp
We're committed to using technology as a force for good!
B Corp is a global movement of people using business as a force for good. We’re super proud to have been certified as a B Corp since 2016.
B Corps are certified as having met the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance. The certification is verified through an extensive auditing process overseen by the non-profit B Lab.
Why we certified
Dog and Bone was set up to empower and enable organisations that are creating a better world. The B Corp certification is formal recognition of that, as well as a set of standards that ensure we deliver on our commitment to running an ethical and sustainable business.
Beyond being a trusted benchmark for ethical practice, B Corp is confirmation that businesses world over believe that they should be set up to benefit the people, communities and environment that they impact.
What's even cooler? B Corp is a community of like-minded people wanting to be the change the world needs and supporting each other in the process.
FOR NOT FOR PROFITS IN THE LAST 12 MONTHS.
TO IMPACT ORGANSATIONS IN THE LAST 12 MONTHS
We audit our impact.
While technology is all about improving our clients businesses, we often reduce their costs significantly. We love the impact this can have - often reinvesting savings in fast tracking their strategy and directly helping people in need.
In the last year we helped our clients identify savings worth over $16M through our procurement capability.
Better yet most of these savings are recurring, enabling ongoing impact & innovation.
We wanted to have a positive impact not just through our services but in the lives of our employees, and by using our success to fund purpose projects. We’ve built a team that really cares about our clients and each other.
We use our profits to fund community projects, whether that be setting up a clinic on the remote island of Motalava, Vanuatu, or providing solar-powered Wi-Fi to a remote area school.
Technology is increasingly playing a significant role in caring for people and planet. We're excited that Dog & Bone is part of that!
Hear from from some of the team about the impact we have in the NFP sector, what it means that we're certified as an ethical business or B Corp and why we love working with organisations that are trying to create a better world.
All things B Corp
We hosted our first Impact Night during B Corp month 2021! Celebrating the impact of our clients and the B Corp movement, we heard from speakers from B Lab ANZ, VACCA, Bank Australia and Anglicare Victoria.
"Our clients serve the community and positively touch the lives of so many people who need support daily. I'm really proud to be associated in some way with our clients and to be able to support them with their technology.”
MRINAL MOHAN, SENIOR ANALYST, DOG & BONE
"The B Corp assessment gets tougher every time, which is a good thing! The more rigorous it is the more legitimacy it has, and the more value it is to a business like ours, that wants everyone from our clients to our employees to know that we are serious about doing good everywhere and in every way that we impact.”
DAN MCKINLEY, CEO, DOG & BONE
