We have chosen to undertake the process to become a Certified B Corporation.
B-Lab are a nonprofit organisation that provide independent certification to companies wanting to become B Corporation Certified. As part of the strict evaluation criteria, a company must score a minimum of 80 points to gain Certification, which is then audited each year.
Certified B Corporations choose to ingrain ethical values into the structure of their business beyond simply making a profit. This includes areas such as environment, community, and governance, setting high standards as to how ethical business's should be run.
Being at the start up stage of our business, we choose to undertake this process early on, setting the standards for our business. We are currently working through the process with B-Lab, with the hope of providing more information soon.
