Our first impact report

It’s not enough for BKL just to be a successful business and employer. We’ve continually looked for ways to make a difference; to support communities; to set an example in the accountancy sector and beyond, such as through our long-standing relationship with social mobility charity LTSB and our charitable foundation.

One year ago, BKL became a certified B Corporation. We’re proud of how this certification recognised our range of achievements as a Good business: one that does the right thing for people and the planet, not just for profit.

At the time, we knew that becoming a B Corp wasn’t job done. Being a verified member of this forward-thinking global community has given us not only a framework for continual improvement, but a higher level of accountability for our social and environmental performance, public transparency and legal governance.

As a significant stage on that journey, we’re pleased to share BKL’s first impact report. It covers our last full financial year (2022/23): what we’ve done and what we plan to do.

You can read it in turn-the-pages format by clicking below, or you can scroll the pdf here.

Don’t let the word ‘report’ put you off. Beyond the corporate terms and abbreviations such as ESG (environmental, social and governance) and DEI (diversity, equity and inclusion), this is the story of people working together on doing the right thing.

2022/23 was a year where much of our focus was on strategic planning and putting foundations in place. As 2023/24 progresses, we’re already looking ahead and building on those foundations together. Our private equity investment from CBPE Capital in April 2023 has given us the ideal partner to help us grow and have an even greater impact.

We hope you enjoy our impact report. Although it’s our first impact report, it won’t be our last, and we’re already excited about the great things we’ll be able to share with you in 2024!
