Happy B Corp month! Did you know that The Cheeky Panda has been a certified B Corporation since July 2019? Being part of this certification is really important to us and we thought we would tell you why!
So what does it mean to be a B Corp anyway?
By being a B Corp, we recognise that we have high standards to meet. We are required to consider the impact of our decisions through our workers, customers, suppliers, community and the environment.
As well as this, we have environmental goals to meet. We have complete public transparency and are accountable to balance profit and purpose.
We are a sustainable alternative to deforestation and have saved the equivalent of 54,600 trees, that’s around 150 football pitches!
To continue our commitment to giving back to the environment, we are carbon balanced with The World Land Trust, which means that we offset unavoidable emissions during the production of our tissues and wipes. We donate a portion of every single sale, which goes towards the protection of the Khe Nuoc Trong rainforest in Vietnam.
“Achieving B Corp Certification has firmly put The Cheeky Panda on the map as a leading business in sustainable bamboo products. We are delighted to be part of a global community using business as a force for good. As per The Cheeky Panda missions statement, we aim to Innovate, Impact and Inspire. By creating a sustainable world for future generations through innovative products, we impact and enrich both people and the planet, without exploiting the environment, while inspiring a fun, conscious, and healthy lifestyle”. – Julie Chen, CEO
We are proud to be a business that is a force for good!
As of March 2020, there are 3,243 B Corporations across 71 countries.
