We are thrilled to share that we have achieved B Corp certification! Our commitment to 'Purpose, Impact, and Innovation' has propelled us to join the ranks of companies focused on more than just profit. This prestigious certification recognises businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability.
What is B Corp Certification?
B Corp certification is more than just a badge; it's a testament to a company's dedication to making a positive impact on the world. B Corps are businesses that go beyond profit-making and consider their impact on society, workers, the community, and the environment. To achieve B Corp certification, a company must undergo a rigorous assessment of its practices, policies, and overall impact.
The B Corp certification evaluates the entirety of a company's operations across five key impact areas: Governance, Workers, Community, Environment, and Customers. The rigorous process requires applicants to attain a benchmark score of over 80, showcasing evidence of socially and environmentally responsible practices. This encompasses energy supplies, waste and water usage, worker compensation, diversity, and corporate transparency. To complete the certification, Naturally Tiwa Skincare has legally embedded its commitment to purpose beyond profit in its company articles.
Why Naturally Tiwa Skincare Pursued B Corp Certification
For us, the decision to pursue B Corp certification was driven by a deep-rooted commitment to ethical and sustainable business practices. We have always prioritised the use of natural ingredients and cruelty-free testing, but the B Corp certification takes our dedication to the next level. It is simply about good business, doing the right things for our customers, our staff, our partners, our stockists, communities, our environment, our world!
Joining a Global Community of Change-Makers
