We are a
Certified B Corporation
What is a B Corp?
Certified B Corporations are for-profit businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corp is a certification administered by the non-profit B Lab, which evaluates not just a product or service, but the company’s overall impact.
This differs from other certifications because it takes on a holistic view of business, ensuring that B Corps prioritise the welfare of people and the planet. This certification is very rigorous so its logo truly stands for business for good.
The B Corp Certification is divided into 5 impact areas: Governance, Workers, Environment, Community, and Customers. The resulting Impact Assessment is verified through multiple external checks requiring documentation for the questions answered.
Greenspoon is Africa's only online grocery B Corp
As members of the B Corp community, we embrace the pledge to reduce inequality, lower levels of poverty, create a healthier environment, strengthen communities and create more high-quality jobs with dignity and purpose. The B Corp certification comes with legally binding commitments, on which we will be assessed every three years in order to maintain our certification.
We are continuously looking to grow Greenspoon’s positive impact. As of 2022, our focus is on improving our supply chain transparency, increasing our fleet of electric vehicles and bikes, finding and leveraging more partnerships for good, and working with smallholder farmers to improve practices and safety of food for our customers.
As a growing business, we are also actively looking at how we can scale up without doing damage to our planet. We acknowledge that everything we do has an environmental impact, and we’ll continue to work towards ensuring our impact is positive.
