In September, the B Corp movement launched in the UK. Certified B Corporations are leading a global movement to redefine success in business. There is now a formal framework for how a different definition of success can be measured, monitored and certified .We are incredibly proud and excited to announce that Solution Sciences is one of the 2015 founding Certified B Corps in the United Kingdom.

We are now committed to a triple bottom line:

  1. People: we provide for employee health and well-being and work to benefit the community through volunteering and addressing environmental and social justice issues in our work.
  2. Planet: sustainability is woven into every aspect of our business, from our green office to our company policies, and by being leaders in the field of sustainability.
  3. Prosperity: we are a for-profit business. By being prosperous, we are able to accomplish our goals for People and Planet.

We are now required to meet higher standards across our social and environmental practices, offer greater transparency, and heighten our legal accountability. Put simply, being a B Corp is like having a Fair Trade certification, but for a whole business, not just a bag of coffee.

Solution Sciences joins the likes of Ben & Jerry’s, Method, ECOVER, COOK, Escape The City and Lily’s kitchen amongst many others. We believe that B Corp is the future of business and we are excited to be part of it!
