Proud to be a B Corp
We’ve known about B Corps for quite some time and have always aspired to become one. We aligned with the ambition and vision to build a business which didn’t compromise on values in order to become successful. A big focus for us has always been about doing things ethically, the right way and always for the right reasons.
If you haven’t heard about B Corporations, you can think of it as the equivalent of a Fair Trade coffee stamp, but for a business. For the last two years, we’ve worked towards achieving our certification.
B Lab is a non-profit organisation that supports and inspires a global movement of people striving to use business as a force for good. These businesses are known as B Corps. To be awarded B Corp status you have to meet high standards of overall social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability, verified by the good people at B Lab.
There are now over 2,500 certified B Corporations in over 50 countries, across 130 industries and they all have one common goal - the triple bottom line philosophy of people, planet and prosperity. Success is measured not just on on the bottom line, but also on the social and environmental impact of your business.
Running a business as a B Corp provides an amazing foundation to build on. More than anything, it makes you question every decision you make and helps you remain honest to your team, investors, partners and yourself, at all times.
We’re proud to be a part of the B Corp community and would encourage anyone considering certifying to make the change. Head to the B Corporation website to find out more.
