Ecosurety renews B Corp™ certification with flying colours

Four years after our first B Corp certification, we have been recertified with a B Impact Assessment score above 100.

After 18 months of rigorous assessment by B Lab, we have been recertified with a score of 100.2, up from 83.8 in our first certification (an increase of almost 20%). This demonstrates our commitment and success in delivering positive environmental and social impact. 

Balancing people, planet and profit 

Granted by B Lab™, the network transforming the global economy to benefit all people, B Corp is a globally recognised certification awarded to companies that meet high standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency.  

Certified B Corporations are also legally committed to bringing benefit not just to shareholders, but all business stakeholders: workers, customers, communities, and the environment.  

With this recertification, we can not only see our overall score jump by almost 20%, it also highlights improvements in 4 out of the 5 Impact Area Pillars of the B Corp framework: Workers, Community, Customers and Environment.  

Our ‘Environment’ score has, for instance, almost doubled since 2020, from 8.7 to 16.5, thanks to the our increased focus on protecting the environment. As part of our commitment to become net zero by 2030, we now monitor, set reduction targets and track progress on our CO2e emissions across scopes 1, 2 and 3.

We have also introduced an Environmentally Preferable Purchasing Policy, ensuring staff use their purchasing power to procure eco-friendly and sustainable goods and services. 

These are a few examples among many improvements that we have made in the last few years to ramp up our sustainability efforts, which have been recognised by B Lab via this much higher recertification score.  

Business as a force for good 

Steph Housty, Head of Sustainability & Marketing at Ecosurety declares: “We are extremely pleased with this recertification, especially with such a significant score improvement. This is a valuable external recognition of the whole team’s continuous efforts to use our business as a force for good. It demonstrates how we increase our positive impact on the environment, on our members, staff, suppliers and our community.” 

Will Ghali, CEO at Ecosurety, adds: “Ecosurety’s mission is to accelerate change towards an environmentally and socially sustainable world. The renewal of our B Corp recertification is a testament to the success of our approach, and we can’t wait to deliver even more positive social and environmental impact on behalf of our members, whom we want to thank for their unfailing trust in this exciting journey.”
