B Corp icon - balancing people and planet with profit

Luminary + B Corp

Balancing the needs of people and the planet with profit.

We've joined the B Corp movement!

On 4 March 2021, Luminary became a Certified B Corp.

Read our announcement blog post

Ever since Luminary began, back in 1999, we have strived to use technology to make the world a better place. In the beginning, our focus was on creating products to make people’s lives better. Over time we have evolved, and so too has our focus. 

As we move into our third decade in operation, our guiding mission is to 'make digital bright and the human experience brighter'. People are still at the heart of what we do, but the planet is now also very much a part of the equation. 

B Corps are a new kind of business that balance purpose and profit, making a positive impact across their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment. For Luminary, the decision to undertake the rigorous process to become a B Corp was a natural extension of the path we were already on. It’s also a way to ensure that we continue to stay the course, to use business as a force for good. 

Read on to find out more about how we're endeavouring to be the best we can be for our people, our community, and our world.
