Becoming a B Corp

Thu, Feb 11, 2021


We’re proud to announce our commitment to becoming a certified B Corporation.

We firmly believe in looking after our team, so becoming a B Corp really fits in with our key values. Over the coming months, we will be introducing new measures and perfecting current ones to ensure the best for our clients, our team and the planet.

As an outsourced accounting firm who specialize in the food and drink industry, we thought this was an important move in supporting the sustainable development of the industry’s future.

What is a B Corp?

In simple terms, a B Corp balances its objectives equally across profit, people and protecting the planet.

B Corps are leading a culture shift globally to refine what success is for businesses by building a more inclusive and sustainable economy.

Why now?

In the past 12 months we’ve already taken steps to tackle climate change by offsetting our carbon emissions with Ecologi and planting more trees under our Portt & Grow pledge. But we must do more.

At Portt & Co, we passionately care about the future and what this means for our children, grandchildren and beyond.

By becoming a B Corp, we’re helping to work towards reduced inequality, a lower level of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities and the creation of higher quality jobs with purpose and dignity.

Who else?

When Portt & Co becomes a certified B Corp, we’ll be part of a much wider group of businesses supporting and working towards the same goals and vision.

We look forward to joining the likes of these amazing food and drink SMEs: Rubies in the Rubble, Tony’s Chocolonely, Oddbox, Jude’s and Doisy & Dam.

We’re pleased to see supermarkets, such as Ocado and Waitrose recognising and dedicating special listings for B Corps by highlighting the certified brands to their consumers.
