BioPak Is Formally Awarded B Corp Certification
BioPak has been awarded with a B Corp Certification, after achieving one of the world’s highest scores by any packaging company.
B Corp certification is growing increasingly popular among businesses as it has become the recognised benchmark for measuring a company’s sustainability, accountability and transparency. A B Corp certified company is required to consider the impact of its decisions on its workers, customers, suppliers, community and the environment.
BioPak was confirmed to have achieved a B Corp score of 88.8 out of 100. The required score to pass the certification is 80 and the median score for businesses is 50.9. The certification applies for all of BioPak Group’s global office premises, including its locations in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore.
Leanne Osborne, Managing Director of BioPak UK, commented: “This is fantastic news for all of the BioPak team, its partners, suppliers and for everyone associated with the company. Being a sustainably-minded company is central to everything we do at BioPak, so it’s pleasing to see that we’ve comfortably passed the certification and achieved one of the highest scores by any packaging company in the world.”
“This is yet another strong piece of evidence that shows that BioPak has the planet’s best interests at the heart of everything the company does.”
Chris Turner, Executive Director of B Lab UK, says: “We are delighted to welcome BioPak to the B Corp community. This is a movement of companies who are committed to changing how business operates and believe business really can be a force for good. We know that BioPak are going to be a fantastic addition to the community and will continue driving the conversation forward."
“We are pleased to have B Corps of all shapes and sizes as part of our community – from startups to multinationals and across many different industries. Business is a powerful force and B Corps demonstrate that you can do good in any sector. Welcoming BioPak is an exciting moment because they have an opportunity to lead the way within the packaging industry. We and the rest of the B Corp community are really pleased to support BioPak in paving the way for a new way of doing things."
There are currently over 1,400 B Corps in the UK and 6,889 worldwide. Achieving B Corp certification comes with a number of benefits, including recognised differentiation from competitors, as well as an increased ability to attract socially-conscious customers and to recruit top talent that can help to drive a business forward.
In order to achieve the B Corp certification, a company must pass a series of assessments and audits and undergo this verification process every three years in order to re-certify, helping to commit businesses to continuous improvement and long-term resiliency.
