19 May 2020Anglia Print becomes the first UK printing company to gain B Corp certification

In May 2020, Anglia Print achieved another first: It became the first commercial printing company in the UK to gain B Corp certification. B Corp certification is dependent on meeting stringent environmental and ethical requirements. The scheme is a much-needed solution that will serve to raise awareness and standards across all sectors across the globe.

To use the official words:

Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corps are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.

Society’s most challenging problems cannot be solved by government and nonprofits alone. The B Corp community works toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of more high-quality jobs with dignity and purpose. By harnessing the power of business, B Corps use profits and growth as a means to a greater end: positive impact for their employees, communities, and the environment.

B Corps form a community of leaders and drive a global movement of people using business as a force for good. The values and aspirations of the B Corp community are embedded in the B Corp Declaration of Interdependence.
