PAPER & PAGE (Thailand) Co., Ltd. has become Thailand’s first-ever digital marketing agency to receive B Corporation certification. The certification marks a milestone for the company, as it celebrates its fifth anniversary.
The Bangkok-based agency’s certification is another example of Thai businesses effectively embracing environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance metrics. The Stock Exchange of Thailand recently announced that the S&P Global Sustainability Awards has recognized 41 companies based in Thailand, the fourth-most in the world.
The agency joins other forward-thinking B Corporations in Thailand’s private sector, including sustainable rice producer Jasberry Co. Ltd., social research consultancy Rapid Asia Co. Ltd., and Danone Specialized Nutrition (Thailand) Co. Ltd., the national subsidiary of Danone S.A.
What is a Certified B Corporation?
Certified B Corporations have met high standards for verified transparency, accountability, and performance spanning a range of ESG indicators. These indicators are benchmarked in the B Impact Assessment administered by B Lab, a nonprofit network dedicated to helping companies balance profit with purpose and leveraging the power of business for a more inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economy. To date, B Lab has certified more than 4,843 businesses worldwide, including 34 in Southeast Asia.
PAPER & PAGE’s B Impact Assessment
Based on the B Impact Assessment, PAPER & PAGE earned an overall score of 82.7. The median score for ordinary businesses who complete the assessment is currently 50.9. The B Impact Score comprises five “impact areas”: Governance, Workers, Community, Environment, and Customers. See the full report here.
According to co-founder and CEO Robert Woodrich, the certification affirms an important pivot in his direction of the company, after the COVID-19 pandemic redrew the business landscape in Thailand.
“The pandemic sparked conversations around the world about inclusive growth and sustainable investment. We saw an opportunity to support programs we identify with; programs that are moving the needle towards inclusivity and sustainability.”
