Oakland International achieves B Corp certification

Redditch, UK: Oakland International has received B Corp certification, awarded to companies that meet high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.

Oakland International’s co-founder Dean Attwell said: “This accreditation provides an external verified standard for several areas not considered by traditional certifications, such as corporate responsibility, being a good employer/neighbour, our commitment to social improvement and green credentials, and acknowledgement of our sustainable practices.

“Being B Corp certified is highly unusual for a company in our industry and of our size, so we are thrilled to be at the forefront of sustainable business values.

“We will have teams on each site to ensure standards are maintained and that the correct improvements are planned to advance future certification. We hope others in our sector will follow our lead as we genuinely believe that better business results are delivered from practices encouraged by the standard.”
