We are proud to announce that we are a certified B Corporation! This certification is a sign of our commitment to social and environmental responsibility in our business operations and far beyond. As a B Corporation, we are committed to not only making a profit, but also having a positive impact on the world and our community. It is our belief that business can play an important role in shaping a better and more sustainable future for all, and we are determined to follow that path.
What does that mean?
We have been working on becoming a B Corporation for almost two years. Quite quickly, we obtained pending status and then had enough time to prepare for actual certification. B Corporation status, or "B Corp" for short, is recognition of our commitment to high social and environmental standards. As a B Corp, we are committed to pursuing not only economic goals, but also to integrating social and environmental factors into our business practices. This certification means that we conduct our business in a way that promotes the common good and has a positive impact on our employees, suppliers, customers, environment and society at large. We are committed to responsible and sustainable business practices and the B Corp certification is an important step in this journey, underlining our commitment to a better world.
What are we doing differently?
Compared to companies that are not certified B Corporations, we take a fundamentally different approach to our business. Our certification as a B Corp means that we go beyond purely profit-driven goals and actively seek to make a positive social and environmental impact. We are committed to higher standards of environmental protection, social responsibility and transparency. This is evident in various aspects of our business, from our supply chain management practices to our environmentally friendly business decisions. As a certified B Corporation, we strive to make a real difference in the world and offer more than just products and services to our customers, employees and society at large.

What does that mean for our future?
Our B Corporation certification paves the way for a promising future. It commits us to aligning our business with high standards over the long term. This means that we will continue to strive to make sustainable choices and have a positive impact on the world around us. We will continue to invest in innovative solutions to minimise our environmental footprint and promote social justice. The B Corp certification is a commitment to make our contribution to a better and more sustainable future while providing our customers with high quality products and services. We are optimistic that this focus on long-term sustainability will positively impact not only our business, but also society at large.
We receive this certification for three years, and by the time it expires, we must improve in all areas to remain a B Corporation in the future. This will ensure that we do not rest on our laurels and improve our operations in all areas. We look forward to walking this path together with you.
