Anthesis, the largest group of dedicated sustainability professionals globally, and one of the UK’s fastest-growing private companies has achieved B Corp status, it was announced on a letter on their website by Paul Crewe, Executive Director & Chief Sustainability Officer, Anthesis Group.
A Letter from our Chief Sustainability Officer
I am very proud to announce that Anthesis Group is now a fully certified B Corporation®, committed to meeting the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and legal accountability.
This certification is a perfect fit for us; B CorpsTM are companies that value purpose as much as profit. They believe that a sustainable business is a better business and can use their business as a force for good. Patagonia, All-Birds, Natura, Danone and almost 4,000 other like-minded companies across 70 countries and 150 sectors of society stand behind this growing movement.
We are proud to be in the presence of these companies, share their ethos, and be part of the growing B Economy.
Furthermore, being a B CorpTM entirely aligns with the fundamentals of why Anthesis was established in 2013; our vision of making a positive and significant impact on sustainability issues, ranging from climate change to human rights, has stayed true throughout our journey.
The B CorpTM assessment process is intentionally complex, measuring our entire social and environmental performance across five ‘impact areas’: workers, customers, community, environment, and governance. The process has been enlightening; it has helped us obtain an objective view of where we are doing well and where we need to work harder, including the development of objectives and targets across our key internal working groups.
As the world’s largest sustainability organisation, our global goal through the decisive decade and beyond, is to support businesses, communities, and governments to activate their maximum sustainable performance, from reaching their Net Zero Carbon goals through to supporting organisations to become a B CorpTM themselves.
On behalf of everyone at Anthesis Group, we truly look forward to embarking on our journey as a B CorpTM and delivering positive and meaningful impact to our clients, employees, stakeholders, society, and of course, the environment.
