In 2015, Macphie became one of the first UK companies to achieve BCorporation certification.
‘BCorps’ are for-profit organisations certified by BLab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. The overall aim is to use the power of business to generate solutions to social and environmental problems.
Chairman, Alastair Macphie said, “At Macphie we’re passionate about corporate social responsibility and sustainability. We drive a number of initiatives to support the environment and local communities, investing time and resources to build meaningful links with community groups and charities.
B Corp is all about creating sustainable solutions to social and environmental issues which fits well with our company values and is an integral part of what we do. Being part of the BCorp community, allows us to continually review our own practices to make ongoing improvements so we are delighted to be part of this initiative.”
Macphie was one of the first companies in the UK to achieve BCorp certification back in 2015. However, the BCorp community now extends to over 1800 companies worldwide, with only 66 of these being based in the UK.
