Lighthouse has now officially joined the BCorp movement of companies across the globe striving to make business a force of good.
A Gloucestershire start-up that supports businesses to make their operations more sustainable has been certified as a B Corporation (B Corp).
Lighthouse Sustainability and its founder, Emma Burlow, works with organisations, including international businesses such as domestic appliance brand Beko and the University of Bath, to set climate change targets, and redesign their products and services.
The business, based in the Forest of Dean, has joined a global group of establishments judged to have a high standard of ethics and that balance profit with purpose.
In order to attain B Corp status, which is administered by US non-profit organisation B Lab, companies must be able to demonstrate responsible practices in five impact areas: governance, workers, community, environment and customers.
