Retail design and build business, Double Retail, has announced today its certification as a B Corporation (or B Corp), joining a growing group of companies reinventing business by pursuing purpose as well as profit.
Double Retail has been certified by B Lab, the not-for-profit behind the B Corp movement, as having met rigorous social and environmental standards that represent its commitment to goals outside of shareholder profit.
The B Corp certification addresses the entirety of a business’ operations and covers five key impact areas of Governance, Workers, Community, Environment and Customers.
Double is now part of a community of over 3,300 businesses globally who have certified as B Corps.
The B Corp community in the UK, representing a broad cross section of industries and sizes, comprises over 300 companies and include well-known brands such as The Guardian, innocent, Patagonia, The Body Shop, and organic food pioneers Abel & Cole.
Kate Sandle, Director of Programmes and Engagement of B Lab UK, comments: “We are delighted to welcome Double Retail to the B Corp community. This is a movement of companies who are committed to changing how business operates, who believe business really can be a force for good. We know that Double are going to be a fantastic addition to the community and will continue driving the conversation forward”.
