Why did Wager Audio Services first take the B Impact Assessment?
To benchmark our performance privately
What matters most to your company?
Helping cultivate public appreciation for performing arts through our technical expertise in sound production and sound reinforcement. We also strive to bring our community to life by supporting events and advocating for other organizations that share our core values.
What did you learn by taking the Assessment?
As a company who thought they were a very socially-conscious business, the Assessment process was very educational. There are many practices we were unaware of that the Assessment opened our eyes to; we now have a guide to implement our values into formal practices.
What did you do as a result of taking the Assessment?
We found that our initial score was well below the threshold for a certified B-Corp. However it gave us strong inspiration and some concrete ideas to act upon. For example, we invested in a collection of rechargeable batteries for all of our wireless sound and electronic equipment. This takes a little more preparation to ensure the batteries are charged, as fresh batteries are required at the start of each event. However, in the last year, this practice has reduced waste by saving hundreds of batteries from ending up in a landfill. Over the coming years, this small step will save thousands of disposable batteries, as well as the cost of buying disposable batteries (win/win!).
