B Corp - Best for the WorldBack to all news
During B Corp's Best for the World™ campaign in 2021 and 2022, we were recognised as one of the top!
To achieve our B Corp certification, we had to answer over 200 questions in five impact areas: Governance, Community, Environment, Customers and Workers. The Best for the World programme has recognised our score under Workers as reaching the top 5% of all B Corps worldwide. For our small company, bashing metal in a tin shed on the outskirts of Edinburgh, this makes us quite proud.
Our ‘Workers’ impact area is particularly strong and recognises that we are a majority Employee Owned company. Employee Ownership gives us rights that employees of other companies don’t always have, with this comes responsibility to help make the company a success.
Teamwork is at the forefront of our company values. We couldn’t do what we do without the dedication and drive of our team.
We drew up our Values and Purpose when we started our Employee Ownership journey way back in 2014. Our purpose statement: making things way better, by making things a better way, is still very much at the heart of what we do as we move with the times to adopt the Circular Economy, achieve Net Zero and continue as an accredited Living Wage employer.
