Coaltown has become one of the first b-Corp certified coffee companies in the UK and we are now morally and legally committed to prioritising responsibility to the environment and society, from the staff who produce our coffee at our roastery to the baristas and front of house staff based in our cafes. Certified B Corporations meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.
what is b-corp?
Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corps are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.
Society’s most challenging problems cannot be solved by government and nonprofits alone. The B Corp community works toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of more high quality jobs with dignity and purpose.
A global standard
B Corps form a community of leaders and drive a global movement of people using business as a force for good. The values and aspirations of the B Corp community are embedded in the B Corp Declaration of Interdependence.
Coaltown has become one of the first coffee roasters in the UK to join the community and adopt the B-Corp approach to business and focus on it's responsibility to develop a environmentally sustainable business for the future of our planet.
