One of our main corporate partners, ProCook, has become B Corp certified!
ProCook, the UK’s leading direct-to-consumer specialist kitchenware brand, has announced its certification as a B Corporation (B Corp), acknowledging its membership of a select but growing group of companies committed to creating value for all stakeholders.
The certification follows a rigorous assessment set by B Lab, the non-profit organisation behind the B Corp movement, whereby ProCook was required to reach a benchmark score by providing evidence of socially and environmentally responsible practices including energy consumption and emissions, waste and water use, employee compensation, diversity and corporate transparency.
In the UK there are currently just over 1000 B Corp certified companies across a broad spectrum of industries and sizes. Well-known UK brands include innocent, Graze and The Body Shop. Globally, brands such as Patagonia and Ben & Jerry’s pioneered the movement.
Daniel O’Neill, CEO of ProCook, said:
“We’re incredibly proud to be at the forefront of this movement in our sector, in which only a select group have been certified as B Corps. ProCook is one of very few companies, and the first retail brand which is listed on the London Stock Exchange, to have achieved B Corp status. This is an enormous achievement by everyone at ProCook.
“With our long-held commitment to building a responsible brand with a strong purpose, we have already celebrated many milestones including eliminating Scope 1 and 2 emissions, committing to the Real Living Wage, and being recognised as one of the UK’s Best WorkplacesTM. We are also committed to responsible sourcing, people diversity and our community activities including our support to Life’s a Beach and the Going the Extra Mile project.
“Alongside our sustainability goals, and the roadmap we are creating to reach Net Zero emissions, our membership of B Corp provides a stringent framework by which we can measure ourselves.”
As one of our corporate partners, we are delighted that ProCook have achieved this amazing certification. We have held several clean up events with ProCook, and we are thrilled to continue working together in the future.
