NHO is B Corp Certified
09.05.23

It is with equal parts pride and humility that we announce our B Corp certification, joining a worldwide community of businesses committed to marrying “purpose with profit”.

If you’re unfamiliar with the certification, B Corporations are businesses that meet “high standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency”. In a world of greenwashing, these are words and phrases that should rightly be scrutinised.

It is with equal parts pride and humility that we announce our B Corp certification, joining a worldwide community of businesses committed to marrying “purpose with profit”.

A more basic premise is that all businesses, both big and small, have impact and influence – over employees, clients, governance, the environment, and our communities. At NHO we’ve embraced this sense of responsibility – and accountability – through the rigorous B Corp certification process.

Having completed a 12 month review and subsequent audit of the entirety of our business practices and operations, we can attest to B Corp’s stringent framework. From policies that ensure a safe and inclusive workplace, to measuring stakeholder satisfaction and ensuring there are ethical and sustainable supplies in the stationery cupboard, no stone is unturned.

The B Corp framework draws on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), helping businesses understand impact areas they can influence, thus honing their focus. From 17 SDGs as defined by the UN, we believe we will be most impactful by focusing on ‘Good Health & Wellbeing’, ‘Decent Work & Economic Growth’, ‘Reduced Inequalities’, ‘Sustainable Cities & Communities’, and ‘Responsible Consumption & Production’. You can read more about United Nations SDGs here.

With a vision for elevating the value of design and its potential for positive impact, NHO is a business that strives to support the objectives of likeminded clients; those who share our value of design, commitment to people, and respect for place. B Corp is a framework that allows us to do just that.

With a vision for elevating the value of design and its potential for positive impact, NHO is a business that strives to support the objectives of likeminded clients; those who share our value of design, commitment to people, and respect for place. B Corp is a framework that allows us to do just that. Never denying that we are a commercial enterprise – a business that exists to generate profit – however, committing to also be a force for good, proving that purpose and profit are not mutually exclusive.

This is just the beginning. Recertification takes place every three years, in which time we will be striving to inch the needle forward, ever improving, evolving, and growing.

With respect for transparency, NHO’s complete ‘B Impact Score’ is publicly available here. To learn more about B Corp visit bcorporation.net.
