Working towards B Corp status
All the member companies of Efficient Building Solutions have announced their intention to work towards B Corp status in response to the escalating climate crisis. Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose.
Chris Herring Director of Green Building Store commented:
“For 25 years Green Building Store has been committed to helping reduce the carbon and environmental impact of buildings. We have been at the cutting edge of sustainable building in the UK, including the early adoption of triple glazing, FSC certified timber and Passivhaus methodology and standard.
The recent IPCC report is a massive alarm bell to humanity and we need to do everything in our power to reduce carbon emissions and our environmental impact as quickly as possible.”
Philip Fellowes-Prynne, CEO of the Efficient Building Solutions, commented:
“All companies need to be a force for good in the climate fight and we need to roll up our sleeves and act without delay. We want to reduce our environmental impact in everything from our vehicle fleet to packaging and waste practices. Working towards BCorp status will enable us to undertake a thorough review and audit of all our operations.”
The Efficient Building Solutions portfolio of companies have recently employed Seismic Change as a consultant to guide them along their B Corp journey to achieve B Corp certification.
