What does it mean to become a certified B Corp™? Being certified as a B Corp™ means joining a global network of businesses committed to using their platform as a force for good.

From the beginning, the Davines Group has always aimed for a holistic purpose, to become a business that builds positive impact for people and the environment. We've acted on this aim by building our Ethical Chart, Sustainability Report and clean-green Davines Village and manufacturing. Alongside our Commitments we're proud to announce that we are internationally certified as a B Corp™!

The Davines Group and its brands, Davines and [ comfort zone ], became a B Corporation® in November, 2016. Joining a community of over 2000 certified B Corporations®, we have committed to adhering to the highest possible standards of social and environmental performance, whilst maintaining public transparency and accountability. The unifying goal of all B Corps™ is to redefine business success, balancing both purpose and profit.  

In order to meet certification, we were required to meet standards set by the non-profit, B Lab®. The standards that were measured by were positioned in five areas: customers, workers, community, governance, and environment. These are the foundations for building a healthy organisation. We exceeded our certification in a number of areas:

  • Analysis of environmental and social impacts through our product life cycles (SLCA)
  • Responsible packaging design - resulting in minimal impact to the environment
  • Waste reduction with 31% of our waste recuperated or recycled
  • Collaboration with suppliers in the pathway to certification
  • Attention to employee welfare
  • Diversity - 48% of women in managerial roles

Requiring a minimum of 80 points  out of a possible 200  to meet certification, we proudly exceeded the minimum with 99 points. Our results displayed our high standards of transparency, efficiency, and commitment to returning positive impact through our work. Our ambition is to achieve daily improvements in our results and raising the bar for businesses to do good.  

''99 points is above average in the entire community of certified B Corporations...and for the size of company that Davines is, that is a remarkable score'' - Bart Houlahan, Co-Founder of B Lab®.
