Gemserv achieves B Corporation status
B Corp Certification is a global recognition of meeting rigorous standards of performance, accountability, and transparency in ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance).
Gemserv chose this certification as it operates with a ‘profit with a purpose’ approach. This combines commercial ambition with its desire to achieve a positive social and environmental impact. B Corp completely aligns with Gemserv’s approach and further helps it define, measure and communicate what good looks like.
To obtain the B Corp status Gemserv went through a rigorous externally audited process that required it to demonstrate best practices on ESG standards as well as on community impact, social value and customer stewardship.
Gemserv will further embed B Corp values in its business decision-making that aims to enhance engagement across industries and produce more holistic results for its clients though its products and services – that meets social, economic and environmental objectives while delivering against core KPIs.
Alex Goody, Gemserv Chief Executive, said:
“Businesses must do more than simply make a profit – they must discharge a wider responsibility to society and the environment. We embrace this ethos at Gemserv, with everything we do about tackling today’s social and environmental challenges.
“Receiving B Corp status is external verification of our approach. But it’s not job done, we want to continue to grow our ESG impact, and B-Corp will hold our feet to the fire with recertification required every 3 years.
“Our staff, and increasingly, our clients, expect nothing less than the highest standard of ESG – and I am proud we have achieved this prestigious recognition.”
