Community, social and environmental impact

A climate-positive workforce powering social change

At Lightful, we take great care to minimise our impact on the environment and treat employees and partners fairly

Our impact

Impact for clients, not on community or climate

The B Corp certification process gave us a framework we could use to review the impact of our operations. We reflected on the impact we have on our team, our clients and the wider community and considered how our day-to-day actions impacted the planet.

As a result, we changed the way we purchase and use office supplies and how we dispose of waste. We now focus on working with suppliers aligned with our missions, values and environmental goals, and have explored how to reduce or remove our digital impact.

We choose to support charities and other purpose-led businesses whenever we have the opportunity. Our team socials and activities put charity awareness and donations front and centre, from a festive MIND Crafternoon event to a February active challenge that saw donations to ten charities chosen by our team.

Lightful is a Living Wage Employer

The real Living Wage is a UK wage rate that is voluntarily paid by 7,000 UK businesses who believe their staff deserve a wage which meets everyday needs. Over 250,000 UK employees have received a pay rise as a result of the Living Wage campaign, and you can learn more on their website.
