UK Holiday Company First in the World to Achieve B Corp Rating
By: Lovat Parks
Certified B Corp companies 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.
Comments Raoul Fraser, Director of Lovat Holiday Parks: "We are extremely proud to have been awarded B Corp certification. We'd heard about B Corp and knew that some of the companies we most respected were members – companies that wanted to build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.
"We decided to go for it and try to get B Corp's stamp of approval – not just for our residents, holiday homeowners and visiting holidaymakers – but for our team, the environment and also the local communities where our parks are based.
"It was much harder than we first thought but, after 15 months of hard work and incredibly rigorous assessment of our entire business, we did it and we're now proud to announce that Lovat Parks is B Corp certified.
"We had to meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, public transparency and legal accountability. We had to show how we use profits and growth to make a positive impact for our employees, local communities and the environment."
The B Corp community is about reducing inequality, lowering levels of poverty, creating a healthier environment, stronger communities, and more high-quality jobs with dignity and purpose.
Society's most challenging problems cannot be solved by government and non-profits alone. By harnessing the power of business, B Corp companies use profits and growth as a means to a greater end: positive impact for their employees, communities, and the environment.
B Corp companies 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 (https://bcorporation.uk/
