White Light is now a B Corporation (B Corp), joining more than 6,000 other companies worldwide that care about people and the environment.

This announcement comes just a few months after the UK-based company received ISO14001 certification, the international standard for environmental management systems.

The mission of B Corps is to alter the global economy into one that is more inclusive, equitable, and regenerative. In 2006, B Lab, a non-profit network that wants to change the global economy for the good of all people, communities, and the planet, devised the idea.

Certified B Corps have shown that they meet high standards for social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. White Light achieved an Overall B Impact Score of 88.8.

WL’s managing director, Bryan Raven, said: “Having been introduced to B Corp while undertaking the ISO14001 accreditation process, we soon realised that we wouldn’t have to change any of our behaviours or policies to qualify, we would just have to formalise them.

“B Corp’s mission aligns perfectly with our own—to work as one to grow a profitable and sustainable business with an international reputation for excellence. This is not a short-term exercise in sustainability measures, but a driving force for long-term accountability and ownership of these values by every stakeholder in our business.”
