DRWakefield Recertified as a B Corp

We are pleased to announce that DRWakefield has been recertified as a B Corp, marking a significant milestone in our ongoing journey towards social and environmental responsibility. Since our initial certification in 2020, we have continually enhanced our practices and impact, and we are proud to reveal that our B Corp score has improved from 85.4 to 109.

Achieving B Corp certification requires undergoing a rigorous assessment every three years to demonstrate a company’s commitment to high standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. With a qualifying score of over 80 points, our substantial score increase reflects our continuous efforts to improve and uphold these values.

Simon Wakefield, Chairman at DRWakefield, expressed his pride in the achievement, saying, “It’s a really proud moment when B Corp, an independent organisation, confirms that we, as a team, not only ‘talk the talk’ but we ‘walk the walk’ in our commitment to ‘do the right thing’ in business.” Terry Sparling, Managing Director at DRWakefield, added, “The continued improvement in our B-Corp score this time around is a testament to the conscientious way our team work daily, bringing coffee to our customers. The investment and external validation by B-Corp reflects the importance the Board places on long-term, sustainable business activities.”

For those unfamiliar with the B Corp Certification, it represents a global movement of companies dedicated to balancing purpose and profit. Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability. They aim to use business as a force for good, fostering a more sustainable and inclusive economy.

Later this year, we will share the 2024 Impact Report. Stay tuned for more updates as we continue our journey towards a more sustainable future.
