Press Release: ISO 270001, B-Corp Certification, Business Declares Commitment

WeShape has three exciting announcements to make...

B-Corp Status

After a rigorous certification process, we're delighted to announce that WeShape is now officially a certified B-Corp! We're excited to join a community of like minded businesses and leaders in a global movement of using business as a force for good. One of our core values is Impact - for us, that's having a positive impact on all of our stakeholders.

B Corp Certification is a designation that a business is meeting high standards of verified performance, accountability, and transparency on factors from employee benefits and charitable giving to supply chain practices and input materials. In order to achieve certification, a company must:

  • Demonstrate high social and environmental performance by achieving a B Impact Assessment score of 80 or above and passing our risk review. Multinational corporations must also meet baseline requirement standards.
  • Make a legal commitment by changing their corporate governance structure to be accountable to all stakeholders, not just shareholders, and achieve benefit corporation status if available in their jurisdiction.
  • Exhibit transparency by allowing information about their performance measured against B Lab’s standards to be publicly available on their B Corp profile on B Lab’s website.  

Our B Impact Score of 91.5 demonstrates our commitment to our community, environment, employees, associates, suppliers and customers. For comparison, a score of 80 Qualifies for B Corp Certification, and 50.9 is the Median Score for Ordinary Businesses. Find out more about the rigorous standards process for B-Corp here.

We couldn't have achieved this without the input, feedback and support from our customers and employees, and the help of Nicolas Williams. We're looking forward to releasing our first impact report later this year, and for now you can find out more about our B-Corp commitment here.

ISO 270001 Certification

We are happy to announce that after a rigorous audit and certification process, WeShape is now ISO27001 certified!

Now more than ever, cyber security is a top priority for us, our customers, and our Associates. We believe all of our stakeholders should trust that we handle their data with the utmost care, and through this certification, we show that we uphold the highest security standards available. If you'd like to find out more about security at WeShape, and how we protect our stakeholders data, feel free to reach out to our cyber security lead Patrick Morton.
