The process itself did take a while, but it was an extremely positive opportunity. It allowed us to understand the choices we had made up until this point and the impact we had on our community and wider network. B Corp’s certification takes into account your business type, size, and location to help personalise goals to work best for you.
During the B Corp certification, we learned a lot about what we want to achieve at The Beeswax Wrap Co. Until this point our decisions had been very intuitive, which had been successful, but we wanted clearer goals and more structure.
Our B Corp impact report has given us a stronger direction. We want to work on the eco-credentials throughout our supply chain, to uplift and support our team, to reduce waste and our carbon impact, and to give back to the community and causes that matter to us.
As well as defining our goals and giving us targets to work towards, being part of the B Corp community introduced us to so many like-minded and inspiring businesses, individuals and charities and allowed us to collaborate and support one another.
