It is testament to the way we believe business should be done. It is proof of the impact of our work. It is recognition of how we believe we should treat the planet, society and our people. Creating meaningful work with dignity and purpose.
When it comes to business certification, we believe that what is easy is not worth doing. Getting B Corp status is hard for all the right reasons, and that’s exactly why it’s worth taking the time and energy to become one. It also explains why there are only 255 others in the UK.
The B Lab assessment recognises the work needed and the genuine commitment required to make a business a force for good in the world. It is a necessary part of the continuous fight against greenwashing, for example. B Lab measures and verifies companies’ environmental and social performance using the B Impact Assessment, and ensure rigorous standards are met. Today there are 3,200 other companies globally who have also undergone the assessment.
We’re proud to be joining a community of like-minded organisations committed to using business for good, including Patagonia, innocent, Pukka Herbs, Abel & Cole, Divine, and JoJo Maman Bebe, and to fight the fight alongside them.
Perhaps the most exciting part is this is only the start of our new chapter. Our journey to certification began over a year ago, and has involved and affected every Revolter in some way, and will continue to do so.
Already next week, we’re joining the B Corp UK Climate Collective workshop to discuss how the B Corp Community can work together to achieve net zero by 2030, and how to drive wider climate action to stay below 1.5 degrees. And this is only the beginning.
