What is B-Corp?
A B-Corporation business is one that goes the extra mile when it comes to being sustainable and eco-friendly. The certification labels an organisation as meeting the highest social and environmental standard of living and working for people and the planet. Only 3500 businesses in the world, spread across 70 countries, have this certification. B-Corp is very hard to get, with a business having to go through a long assessment process and needing to meet lots of different requirements, so it is a huge achievement.
The Certification of B Corp
B Corp Certification is the only certification that measures a company’s entire social and environmental performance. The B Impact Assessment evaluates how a company’s operations and business model impact their workers, community, environment, and customers. From their supply chain and input materials to their charitable giving and employee benefits. B Corp Certification proves that a business is meeting the highest standards of verified performance.
There are currently over 3,500 Certified B Corporations in more than 70 countries. Some companies include; Jamie Oliver Group, The Body Shop, tikr, Wilton London, Ben & Jerry’s, Redbox, Patagonia Works, Little Soap Company, Jude’s and lots more…
It is a huge achievement for us to have achieved B-Corp Certification. We are so excited to be celebrating B-Corp month, just after our one year B-Birthday, with thousands of other amazing companies.
