As B Corp status has to be renewed every two years, WiredScore will be kept regularly accountable to a stringent set of business standards, as we continue to formally recognise that WiredScore exists to benefit a much wider set of stakeholders than just our shareholders.
Already, scoring ourselves against the B Corp standards has brought areas for improvement to light. So far, we’ve achieved a net zero carbon footprint in 2020 – an achievement spurred on by our dedication to meeting the high sustainability expectations as set by the B Corporation.
B Corp status brings more responsibility to assess all aspects of business practice, and that means taking a closer look at our suppliers too. In light of this, we’ve set about assessing our external suppliers to source more sustainable materials for our collateral. We’re also keen to support smaller, local businesses to avoid shipping goods unnecessarily long distances and ensure that we’re working with businesses also committed to doing things the better way.
