In early 2024, Pepe Garden Furniture officially became B Corp certified. On this day we join over 4,000 companies, in 153 industries, across 77 countries in being independently verified by the B Lab as ‘using business as a force for good’. This means adhering to the highest standards of social and environmental performance, public transparency, and accountability.
Pepe Garden Furniture is now the first B Corp Garden Furniture Brand in the WORLD. We join a cohort of over 600 UK B Corps who are reinventing business, by pursuing purpose as well as profit.
To receive certification, we had to provide evidence of socially and environmentally responsible practices – including energy supplies, waste and water use, worker compensation, diversity and corporate transparency. Finally, to complete the certification, we have legally embedded our commitment to purpose beyond profit into our company articles.
As a result, we are now proud to be officially part of a community including well-known brands like Innocent, Patagonia, Riverford, Bloom & Wild, Divine, and JoJo Maman Bebe.
