By Dave Houston, Managing Director

As the Managing Director of Genfit, I am incredibly proud to announce that we have officially achieved B Corporation certification. This accomplishment marks a significant milestone in our ongoing journey to prioritise sustainability, social responsibility, and ethical governance in everything we do. I’d like to take a moment to share what this certification means for us, how it will shape our future, and to extend a heartfelt thank you to Laura and the team at Truth for their invaluable support throughout this process.

B Corporation certification is awarded to companies that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability. It is a symbol of our commitment to balance profit with purpose, ensuring that our business practices benefit all stakeholders, including our employees, customers, community, and the planet.

Achieving this certification is a testament to our dedication to ethical business practices. It reflects our mission to lead by example in the renewable energy industry, demonstrating that it is possible to run a successful business while making a positive impact on society and the environment.

Becoming a B Corporation is not just about meeting a standard; it’s about setting a precedent. We believe that businesses can be a force for good, and this certification is a step towards creating a more inclusive and sustainable economy. It’s a commitment to our customers, our community, and our planet.

We would not have reached this milestone without the guidance and support of Laura Hothersall and her team at Truth (We are TRUTH | Join the global B Corp community.). Their expertise and dedication were instrumental in helping us navigate the complex certification process. Thank you, Laura, for being an invaluable partner in this journey. Your insights and support have been crucial in helping us achieve our goal.

Note to readers: I got a little excited the morning we received the news and sent Laura an Oscars inspired acceptance speech which I’m sure you’ll see on her website!

I’d like to extend a big personal thank you to Lauren, our Head of Operations, who helped compile the evidence in support our responses, whilst at the same time working through IS0 9001, 14001 & 22301 accreditations! This was no mean feat; we have since been approved for all three ISO’s, which will count as extra B Corp points through our continual assessment.

B Corp will shape our future by:

1. Building Trust and Loyalty: Our B Corporation status enhances the trust our clients and partners place in us. It signals our unwavering commitment to ethical practices and will help us attract customers who value sustainability and responsibility.

2. Attracting and Retaining Talent: We believe that talented individuals seek purpose-driven companies. This certification positions us as an employer of choice for those who are passionate about making a difference.

3. Continuous Improvement: The B Corporation certification process encourages us to continually assess and improve our practices. We are committed to maintaining these high standards and seeking new ways to enhance our social and environmental impact.

4. Community Engagement: With this certification, we are better equipped to make a meaningful impact in our community. We will continue to support local initiatives, charitable causes, and volunteer efforts that align with our mission.

We invite you to join us on this journey. Together, we can redefine what it means to be a responsible business and inspire others to follow suit!
