First Mile is now B Corp Certified

Recycling and waste management expert, First Mile, is pleased to announce that it is now a Certified B Corporation, marking a major milestone in the company’s sustainability journey.

The B Corp Certification recognises that First Mile is part of a global community of businesses that meet high standards of social and environmental impact.

To become B Corp Certified, companies undergo a detailed assessment which involves over 300 questions designed to measure a company’s entire social and environmental impact across five key areas – governance, workers, community, environment and customers.

Commenting on its B Corp Certification, First Mile founder and CEO, Bruce Bratley, says: “The B Corp Certification process is an extremely rigorous one that delves deep into every area of the business. Becoming B Corp Certified is a fantastic achievement and recognises not only the performance of First Mile’s range of products and services, but also how we conduct all of our internal and external business practices too.

“It really is a team effort, and it was great to be able to showcase the sterling work of our amazing First Mile employees, and the dedication of partners that make our work possible – such as our customers and supply chain – as we continually strive to ensure that our actions have a positive impact on our society and the environment.”

Chris Turner, Executive Director of B Lab UK, adds: “We are delighted to welcome First Mile to the B Corp community. This is a movement of companies who are committed to changing how business operates and believe business really can be a force for good. We know that First Mile is going to be a fantastic addition to the community and will continue driving the conversation forward.  Its commitment to doing business differently will be an inspiration to others and really help spread the idea that we can redefine success in business to be as much about people and planet as it is about profit.”
