Digitom achieves B Corp status

BEST PICTURE: The local video production company spent 18 months working towards their status

After 18 months of hard work, local video production company Digitom has been recognised for its high standards of social and environmental performance with the achievement of B Corporation status.

B Corp is a designation assigned by the global non-profit B Lab movement that indicates a business is meeting high standards of verified performance, accountability and transparency on factors ranging from employee benefits and charitable giving, to supply chain practices and input material.

Digitom underwent an extensive assessment by B Lab and achieved a score of 96.5 – significantly higher than the required 80 points.

Founded by Tom Chown in 2010, the company has built a solid reputation for creating content with purpose for a wide range of public and private sector clients, and their work has included award-winning campaigns for British Transport Police, Nextdoor and Stagecoach Bus.

“From our approach to sustainability, to building a new studio using renewable materials and creating pro-bono campaigns for charities, I felt our ethos aligned with B Corporation. We also use electric vehicles on location and a green energy supplier,” Mr Chown said.

He added: “There’s a growing movement of businesses in Tunbridge Wells and the South East that are happy to poke their heads above the parapet and put themselves on the line to be examined.

“This is only the beginning, as we will need to work hard to maintain our membership of the B Corp community.”
