One+All publishes its first Sustainability Impact Report
One+All’s first Sustainability Impact Report reveals that "Doing Good" is good for business.
We've published our first Sustainability Impact Report, following our B Corporation certification in August 2020. The Impact Report showcases our longstanding commitment to sustainable practices, and highlights our initiatives for people, the community and the planet. As part of B Corp certification, organisations must report annually on their impact on customers, colleagues, community, and the environment.
One+All’s sustainability journey began with the introduction of a values-led culture in 2009 and a transition to employee ownership in 2015, culminating with B Corp certification in 2020.
To become a B Corp, organisations must achieve a minimum score of 80; One+All achieved a score of 107. There are over 5000 B Corp businesses globally who share a belief that business can benefit the world and the people who live in it.
One+All’s sustainability actions include: gifting water filter systems to overseas workers; paying the real Living Wage; addressing the cost of living crisis with tax-free payments to UK colleagues; switching to an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) pension; reducing its overall carbon emissions by 28% in four years; introducing a Workers Participation Committee at a Bangladesh supplier factory; being a member of the Better Cotton™ initiative and ETI, cementing its commitment to ethical supply chains and raw materials.
“We hope our first Impact Report brings to life what we’ve done to show that we’re serious about sustainability,” says Donald Moore, Chair at One+All. “We’re accountable to all our stakeholders, so we’ve explained what we’ve achieved so far and our future goals. As we’re a work-in-progress, we’ve been honest about things we didn’t get right, too.”
Moore concludes, “Our Impact Report proves that caring for people and the environment are critical factors leading to strong business performance. It also reflects the huge contribution made by One+All colleagues to our success. With so much to gain, we hope other businesses will be inspired by our story to join the B Corp movement.”
