Our commitment to inclusive, equitable, and regenerative ways of doing business


At Levercliff, we believe that traditional capitalist views on profit maximising, built on the notion of extracting rather than adding value to our society, are not aligned with our vision and the impact we aim to make in our community.

So, in 2022, we became B Corp certified to demonstrate our commitment to operating a more ethical business and becoming a force for good in society, something that is at the heart of the B Corp movement.

As a result of our certification we are now morally and legally committed to prioritising responsibility to the environment and society in everything we do as a business.

B Corp has given us the opportunity to formalise the work we are already doing and provides a framework as well as practical tools for improvement going forward.

More information about our scoring across the different areas can be found on the B Corp site.

In the course of my 25 year career in food and drink, I have been fortunate to go on several negotiation workshops with leading providers. Without a shadow of a doubt, the negotiation workshop delivered by Levercliff and Steve Jones during the Commercial Excellence programme was by far the best.

Levercliff give me an outside view. I can check my thinking and get reassurance for the decisions I need to take. It costs to get advice but you need to see it as the money you save by not making a bad and expensive investment decision.

Entering a new category segment was a risk for Borders, and we turned to Levercliff to help us to assess that risk methodically. Several years on, it is a risk that has really paid off.
