Through self-funded technology and sustainability, reaching every aspect of the business, Seacourt has been recognised by B Corp as one of the ‘Best for the World’ businesses in terms of environmental impact. According to B Lab, we have shown “exemplary performance beyond commercial metrics”, ranking our printing business in the top 5 per cent worldwide of all B Corps!
As the highest-scoring B Corp media company in the world, our net-positive business operations have revolutionised the traditional printing process. Seacourt has achieved this ranking due to the development of our quality waterless LED printing process LightTouch®, using 100 per cent renewable energy, reducing volatile chemical emissions by 98.5 per cent and delivering zero waste to landfill. Our team even has compost and worms on site for food waste created during lunch! As the final step for emissions that can't be reduced further, we offset our entire footprint plus 10 per cent by investing with the widely recognised Climate Care, in cookstoves in Ghana and Bangladesh that require 50 per cent less fuel, and which generate less smoke than traditional means, meaning this not only cuts carbon emissions but reduces exposure to toxic fumes.
We are beyond happy about being recognised as one of the Best for the World™ B Corps of 2021! As all B Corps are already businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose, this is a recognition that makes us incredibly proud. And we’re just getting started! We will continue collaborating with the global B Corp community to improve and positively impact all our stakeholders.
As a champion for sustainability, Seacourt aims to achieve even more by setting itself a goal to become a completely regenerative printing business. With this accolade, we have set the benchmark for British SME sustainability, and as ever, we are more than happy to support our clients to exceed their environmental impact reduction targets, to help Britain reach net-zero.
