We've always been stubborn about doing honest business. Whether that means always doing things ourselves, grilling our new suppliers to make sure they're the right fit for us or sourcing the very best leaves that we can, we're constantly reflecting on how to be a better business - a business which is a force for good.
SO, WHAT'S B CORP™?
Becoming a certified B Corp™ is our way of cementing our commitment to doing honest business. It's something we've wanted to do for two years, and in January we finally bit the bullet and began working towards certification.
In short, Certified B Corps meet the highest standards of verified overall social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. As a certified B Corp™, we're joining 1,400 other businesses worldwide who are encouraging a better way to do business. Head this way to find out more about B Corp™
Truth is, it's been a long slog. Getting certified needed more cross-party commitment than almost anything we've ever done and required us to change how and why we worked in certain areas - from small projects, like changing the light bulbs to big changes, like rethinking our articles of association.
One of the hardest parts has been staying tight lipped on what we've been up to, but now that we're certified, we get to share all things B Corp™ with you. We'll be keeping you in the loop on everything we're doing to be a better business, whether it's awesome or just plain difficult.
See you soon!
