23 Degrees is a wholesale specialty coffee roaster. At 23 Degrees, they are absolutely passionate about coffee and love crafting a beautiful cup, connecting people and sharing their stories. With this passion comes the responsibility to build a more equitable and sustainable coffee supply chain where they create value, share benefits, and support their coffee growers, partners and customers. Core to building an equitable supply chain is 23 Degrees’ sourcing strategy, which is built on transparency, partnerships, ethical pricing and quality. 23 Degrees is a female founded. Naturally they want women in coffee to thrive and are committed to source at least 50% of their coffee purchases from women coffee growers. Creating value and sharing benefits goes far beyond sourcing through an ethical supply chain. Together with other forward-thinking organisations they are working on programs which support their coffee growers through education programs. Through the 23 Degrees sustainability program their customers benefit from their sustainable sourcing strategy, freshly roasted specialty coffee, consumer education and the opportunity to recycle spent coffee grounds and reduce waste.

Atticus is a socially aware and purpose driven commercial law firm offering services in business and commercial law and litigation. They believe in the power of business, the law and the legal system to change people's lives for the better. Our values naturally align with the B Corp purpose, so it was a no brainer for us to join the movement and connect up with other like minded businesses. We believe very strongly that "for profit" organisations have the capacity and a responsibility to support our communities and to be actively engaged in leadership and innovation. As a profession, lawyers get a bad rap. Have you heard the one about the lawyer who woke up from surgery and the curtains in the operating theatre were drawn? The nurse told him softly that the building across the street was on fire, and they didn't want him to wake up and think he'd died. We've made it our mission to change that stereotype.
