B Corps commit to positively impact all stakeholders that they are involved with – from their workers, to communities, customers, and the planet. There are now over 6800 B Corps around the world across 161 industries and 89 countries. 1300 of these B Corps are in the UK. Today Ben is meeting the Managing Director of a newly certified B Corp. Duncan Murray-Clarke is MD of The Ad Plain – an agency with several wings to its bow – from content creation to publishing, social media, branding, design and media planning. TAP, as The Ad Plain is known, has bases in the UK and in Spain and its specialism is agriculture.
