We're thrilled to announce a significant milestone in Human's journey....We've earned our B Corp certification!
As we join the ranks of a global community of forward-thinking businesses, we're more committed than ever to balancing purpose with profit.
What is B Corp Certification?
B Corp, which stands for "Benefit Corporation", is a certification awarded to businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. It's overseen by B Lab, a nonprofit organisation, and signifies a company's dedication to going beyond the conventional profit-driven business model.
Unlike traditional corporations, a B Corp commits to considering the impact of their decisions on their employees, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment. It's not just about being the best in the world—it's about being the best for the world.
The B Corp Values
B Corp is underpinned by a set of core values that emphasize a holistic approach to business:
Purpose Over Profit: While profit is essential for business sustainability, B Corps place equal, if not more, emphasis on having a positive impact on society and the environment.
Transparency: B Corps are obligated to be transparent in their operations, ensuring stakeholders can see their impact.
Accountability: These companies are legally bound to consider the implications of their decisions on their employees, customers, community, and the environment, not just their shareholders.
Inclusivity: Emphasizing diversity, equity, and inclusion, B Corps aim to create an environment where everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed.
Stewardship: B Corps strive to pave the way for future generations, considering the long-term impacts of their decisions.

Future-proofing Our Business: We recognize that the business landscape is rapidly evolving. Stakeholders are increasingly seeking out companies that not only offer great products or services but also make a positive impact.
