Our B Corp Journey and why it matters to you

By: Kelly Bellerson

In 2023 we began the process of becoming B-Corp certified. This is our journey so far.

First off, what is B Corp certification?

B Corp certification is awarded by B Lab, a non-profit organisation that rigorously evaluates companies across various dimensions, including governance, workers, community, environment, and customers.

To become B Corp certified, companies must meet high standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.

This process involves a comprehensive assessment that scrutinises every aspect of a company’s operations, from supply chain practices to employee benefits and community engagement.

Why B Corp?

At HORDE, we’ve always been about doing good, being environmentally friendly, and creating a happy team. Now, it’s time to take it up a notch and dive deeper into our sustainable and ethical practices.

That’s why we’re working through the B Corporation application process—because we’re here to shake things up. Business should be a force for good, not just profit. The rigorous B Corp certification aligns with our commitment to sustainability, transparency, and social responsibility.

Joining the global B Corp community means we hold ourselves to the highest standards in environmental performance and ethical practices. We’re all about putting our employees, customers, community, and the planet first.

Pursuing B Corp certification is our way of proving we’re serious about making a positive impact and driving real change for a sustainable future.

The Importance of B Corp

Achieving B Corp certification is not just about meeting a set of standards; it’s about embedding a philosophy of purpose-driven business into the very core of our operations. Here’s why this certification matters to us and why it should matter to you:

Sustainable Growth – B Corps are required to consider the impact of their decisions on all stakeholders, ensuring that growth is sustainable and responsible. This approach aligns our business goals with broader societal and environmental objectives.

Enhanced Credibility and Trust – Being a B Corp signifies that we are committed to high ethical standards and are transparent about our business practices. This builds trust with clients, partners, and the community.

Attracting Talent and Business – More than ever, employees and consumers want to be associated with companies that reflect their values. B Corp certification makes us more attractive to top talent and socially conscious stakeholders.

Where are we?

At HORDE, we kicked off our B Corp journey in 2023, determined to take our commitment to doing good to the next level.

Throughout this rigorous process, we’ve been relentlessly improving our processes and policies to meet the B Corp standard. We’re all about raising the bar for sustainability, transparency, and social responsibility.

We have now officially applied for B Corp certification, solidifying our dedication to making a positive impact and driving real change for a sustainable future.
