Can you imagine a new kind of business that is a force for good in every way possible? Good for workers, customers, suppliers, the community, and the environment. A business with a purpose beyond profit?
Thousands of businesses like this already exist, and many prove this by gaining the B Corporation Certification. The B Corporation community works toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of more high-quality jobs with dignity and purpose.
B Corp is one of the strongest standards around, measuring every aspect of each company’s environmental and social responsibility credentials. Started in 2006, there are now some 3,200 companies in 64 countries covering 150 industries of all sorts. They all share one thing in common – they do good!
Here are some great UK consumer B-Corp brands that you can shop with, knowing your money is going to a socially and environmentally responsible company:
Brewgooder, based in Glasgow, and One Water both share a really clever approach. One produces craft beer, and the other water, both to very high ecological standards, for UK consumers. Profits go to support clean water projects in some of the world’s poorest communities. Your purchasing choices can help fund new wells, pumps and filters and make a huge difference to people’s lives.
