IDNet becomes UK’s first certified B-Corp ISP
IDNet is thrilled and proud to announce they have been certified as a B Corporation.
We are the first telecommunications company in the UK to achieve this honour and the first UK Internet Service Provider (ISP)
B Corps are for-profit companies, which commit to create a positive impact on society and the environment through their operations. Basically, businesses that want to do some good in the world, beyond simply making profit.
There are currently over 3,000 Certified B Corporations in more than 50 countries around the world with around 300 here in the UK.
Household brands such as Ben & Jerry’s, Patagonia, Innocent Drinks, Danone, Teapigs and The Body Shop are all Certified B Corporations. And now IDNet can be counted alongside such organisations that balance purpose and profit.
To become a B Corp, firms must meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. It’s a bit like receiving a ‘Fairtrade’ produce certification, but for your business operations.
Our Director Tim Davies welcomed the news saying
“This is an enormous milestone for the company, and we are excited about taking our customers and supply partners on the journey with us. The process has already helped to add more context and meaning to our ‘Everything Connected’ message”.
Tim continues “When people choose to buy products or services on the high street, online or from a business supplier, they should look out for the B-Corps popping up across all sectors of the economy. Supporting these businesses is an opportunity to be part of something better.”
