What Does it Mean to be B Corp Certified?
No one says it better than B Corp themselves. To be a B Corp, companies must “meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose”.
We believe passionately in the collective power of companies like ours striving to make a positive change and shift the thinking of how business is done worldwide.
It’s entirely possible for business to be conducted in a way that helps protect the environment and the people who make businesses work, from the suppliers to the very top.
B Corp themselves say, “B Corps are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy” and we couldn’t agree more.
As a B Corp Certified company, we’re part of a community helping to reduce inequality and poverty, working together for a “healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of more high quality jobs with dignity and purpose”.
Our profits help towards bigger and better things too, and as a B Corp, we’re committed to using our profits and our platform to have a positive impact on our own employees and communities, as well as our local and the wider environment.
