BCP is part of a global community of Certified B Corporations (B Corps) that are uniting for-profit companies to use the power of business to build a more inclusive and sustainable economy. B Corps meet the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. With certification processes that use credible, comprehensive, transparent, and independent standards to ensure verification, verified B Corporations are companies that you can trust. As part of the B Corps community, BCP works towards reduced inequality, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of high-quality jobs with dignity and purpose. As a registered B Corp, BCP is contractually required to consider the impact of our decisions on our employees, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment by participating in audits every two years that assess and ensure that our policies and practices are held to the highest standards.
We are proud to share that as a result of our continued dedication to our employees, and to upholding our environmental and sustainable responsibilities to better our planet, that BCP ranked in the top 0.5% of B Corps Globally, following our recertification in April 2021. BCP scored the second-highest rating in Africa and ranked 17th in the world out of a total of over 3,900 companies, earning us the title of “Best for the World Honoree” for our rating of 150+.
“Working at BCP is about building something much bigger and far greater than ourselves, it’s about building a sustainable future for our planet. To do so, we understand that we have to adhere to a set of environmental and sustainable standards. But not only that, we have to look after our ‘BCPeople’, who are the backbone of our company, without whom our mission would not succeed. It is so important for us to be part of the B Corps community because it provides reassurance to our valued stakeholders, partners, and carbon offset buyers that we have gone the extra mile and joined a community that holds us accountable on how we look after our employees, as well as our environmental and social impact”.
BCP CEO, Dr. Hassan Sachedina.
Beyond our B Corp certification, our high-quality, Verified Carbon Offsets are verified and audited against the highest international standards by two of the most widely recognized and respected independent authorities – VCS (Verified Carbon Standard) and CCBA (The Climate, Community and Biodiversity Alliance). These standards verify that our carbon offsets are real, rigorously, and scientifically measured, and benefit local communities, forests, and biodiversity. Going one step further, the LZRP is CCB Triple Gold Verified for exceptional community impacts, while the LCFP is CCB Triple Gold Validated. Additionally, as an organization, we meet 16 out of 17 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, with our goal to meet all 17 by 2030.
