Centor becomes B Corp Certified
Centor Insurance & Risk Management is proud to be the first insurance broker in the UK to become B Corp Certified.
Certified B Corporations use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.
It took over a year of hard work by our corporate social responsibility (CSR) committee to achieve the certification, which involves an in-depth assessment of an organisation’s overall social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability. Companies need to get a minimum of 80 points out of a possible 200, which is no easy task. It is something just 119 UK companies have achieved so far.
CEO Neil Walton is thrilled.
‘I am very proud to lead an organisation that considers our social and environmental impact and takes responsible decisions,’ he says.
‘We have always believed that running a business is not just about making a profit, but about having a positive impact on our stakeholders, the community and environment.’
There are over 1,700 Certified B Corporations in 50 countries and across 130 industries.
