"Working through the BCorp assessment with Carra provided a different lens when thinking about our company and its purpose. It's not easy to quickly understand something new or understand the landscape of a new organisation quickly. Yet this is what Carra was able to achieve from our first meeting."

"Carra takes a considered approach to how we operate, the practicalities of what we do, our mission and impact the organisation has in the communities we operate. Constructively challenges our thinking as an organisation, discussing how we evidence and back up statements and practices both internally as well as our core social impact. Sessions with Carra also sparked a number of internal conversations within our organisation in which we ended up challenging our thinking and current practices, why we have them in place, and questioning whether they are robust and fit for purpose."
