We are in the caring profession and while for the most part that means caring about delivering products that improve the quality of life for our customers, it also means we care about the environment too.
We’ve appointed an internal team of environmental champions who keep an eye on us to make sure our day to day lives in the workplace are as environmentally friendly as possible.
We believe every business, no matter the size, has a role to play in the race to net zero and have made the SME Climate Hub Commitment, taking us one step closer to our net zero goal.
B Corp Certification:
In May 2023 we certified as B Corp, which is recognised as the highest standard for social corporate responsibility. B Corp certification measures a company’s entire social and environmental impact, including everything from employee wellbeing to carbon footprint.

Since B-Lab was founded in 2006, over 200,00 businesses have taken the B Impact Assessment, but only 6,400 have been successful. Within the UK there are currently only 1,200 B Corp certified companies. The B Corp assessment measures our company’s performance in the following areas: Workers, Customers, Community, Governance and the Environment.
Some of the things we have been working on within our business which helped us to reach B Corp certification include:
As the importance of sustainable business practices is steadily increasing, achieving B Corp certification was a key step in our sustainability journey. We are looking forward to continuing the social and environmental work to reach our Net Zero target.
