Ethics and Impact reports

Wholegrain Digital was founded with the aim of not only helping positive organisations thrive online but also with the ambition of being a truly sustainable business, one that ‘walks the talk’ and inspires other companies with our actions and achievements.

Our annual impact reports highlight our successes each year, against the standards that we set for ourselves, as well as those we need to achieve to maintain and improve our B Corp certification score year on year.
