It’s official. We’re very excited to announce that we’ve joined the B Corp Community and we’re now a Pending B Corp Certified Company - which is pretty big news.
What does that mean?
Well, Certified B Corps are businesses that meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to make sure they balance profit and purpose.
The B Corp movement is accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.
Why have we joined?
Using business as a force for good is at the heart of The Public Spirit and so becoming a B Corp is an incredibly natural fit for us.
Sustainability and community are core to our beliefs and we truly mean it when we say ‘when you drink the good stuff, you’ll be doing good too.’
Through achieving the accreditation, it will not only allow us to validate and substantiate our commitments but it will also enable us to become even better and even more sustainable moving forward.
Who are other B Corps?
We’ll join a growing community of like-minded businesses and industry leaders in sustainability and social enterprise from Patagonia to Brewdog.
There is also a rising number of UK businesses, both small and large who are choosing to join the B Corp movement
Following a year of pending status, we’ll then undertake the process to gain our full accreditation.
B Corp undertake a rigorous assessment of a company’s impact on its workers, customers, community, and environment. To be a certified B Corp you require a score of 80 - the median score for ordinary businesses is just over 50.
But until then, Let’s Share Some Public Spirit!
