We were asked by Harrogate Spring Water to help put together a B Corporation Impact Report outlining the company’s continued improvements to its environmental, social and governance (ESG) commitments and to boosting its B Impact Assessment score – the independent mark which shows how well the company is living up to its promises.

We liaised with the team at Harrogate Spring Water, taking on board their brand guidelines, existing creative assets and key messaging to create a 12-page report to be shared with the B Corporation assessors and with the public.

The resulting publication is now on the company’s website and helps to tell the story of Harrogate Spring Water’s continuing commitment to ESG and its corporate values.
