B Corp: Environmental
Why B Corp?
Stoane Lighting have been a certified B Corp since December 2020. Certified B Corp companies are for-profit and out to use their business as a force for good. We are legally required to consider the impact of our decision on our workers, customers, suppliers, community and the environment. They offer the broadest level of certification we could find.
As a forward-thinking company with privileged involvement on high profile projects around the world, it seemed entirely appropriate to be accountable as to how Stoane Lighting deliver their design and manufacturing practices. Having them independently audited from an environmental perspective was a strong motivator for applying.
We play a small part in an industry that, to put bluntly, is a contributor to the climate crisis we find ourselves in. It is vital that we do all we can to improve how we contribute our part of this equation.
The Environment area of B Lab's impact assessment "evaluates a company’s overall environmental management practices as well as its impact on the air, climate, water, land, and biodiversity. This includes the direct impact of a company’s operations and, when applicable its supply chain and distribution channels. This section also recognizes companies with environmentally innovative production processes and those that sell products or services that have a positive environmental impact. Some examples might include products and services that create renewable energy, reduce consumption or waste, conserve land or wildlife, provide less toxic alternatives to the market, or educate people about environmental problems."
The assessment is transparent and published. Please find ours here: https://www.bcorporation.net/e....
