We have decided that in 2021 we will be working towards becoming a certified B Corporation.
But what is that ?
Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose.
Society’s most challenging problems cannot be solved by governments and non- profit organisations alone, so by harnessing the power of business B Corps use profits and growth as a means to a greater end, with positive impact for their employees, communities and the environment.
The B Corp community work towards the following;
Lower levels of poverty
A healthier environment
Creation of jobs with dignity and purpose
The certification process assesses and measures the company’s entire social and environmental performance from the supply chain to charitable giving and employee benefits and proves that the company is meeting the highest performance standards.
The certification does not just prove that your company excels now , but also commits you to consider the impacts on stakeholders both now and in the future.
So in short we feel that it is the gold standard for good business and we will keep you updated on our progress.
