Redhill, UK-based Curtis Packaging has confirmed its recent certification as a B Corporation™ (B Corp™), demonstrating the company’s continued commitment to producing beautiful, printed cartons with innovative design that are kind to the environment.
The B Corp certification, administered by the non-profit organisation B Lab, evaluates a company’s social and environmental performance through a rigorous review of the impact of its operations and business model on governance, workers, customers, communities, and the environment.
Curtis Packaging’s dedication to environmental responsibility is at the heart of the company, and the B Corp certification is a testament to its ongoing efforts. Based on the B Impact assessment, Curtis Packaging earned an overall score of 91.3, well above the median score for ordinary businesses who complete the assessment.
James Williams, Managing Director, stated, “Joining a group of organisations with a shared belief will create a significant unified improvement to the environment. We are delighted to be the first UK carton manufacturer to have achieved this accreditation and become part of the B Corp community.”
Steve Mallett, Sales Director, added, “Sustainability is an essential part of making sure we’re protecting our planet into the future. I am proud that we began our environmental journey many years ago, long before accreditations like B Corp existed and along the way have received many accolades and reviews from our customers and national periodicals.”
