Simply publishes 2024 B Corp Impact Report

Today we’re publishing our second Impact Report, covering the period from January to December 2023 – our first full year as a certified B Corporation.

The report sets our achievements over the past 12 months and tracks our progress against the commitments we made a year ago. It brings to life the work we’ve done across all areas of B Corp certification – Governance, Workers, Environment and Community – and sets out our plans and targets for the year ahead.

Andrew Shelley, Operations Director, Simply Washrooms, said: “2023 has seen Simply achieve several significant milestones. Resource reduction has been a real focus for us, and we’ve made some great progress. We’ve reduced our overall plastic consumption by 16% and we’ve expanded our use of recycled plastics in production to 42% of our products.”

“The result of this work means that whilst the business has continued to grow, we’ve still managed to achieve reductions in both our overall carbon output and our carbon intensity.”

“We remain the only certified B Corp in the workplace hygiene industry, which is something that we’re really proud of. Since we started our B Corp journey nearly three years ago, we’ve learnt a considerable amount about our business and how we can transition towards a more sustainable model. We’ve also learnt that achieving B Corp accreditation is definitely a journey, not a destination. Looking ahead, we’ll continue to make improvements across the business whilst ensuring we maintain our consistent culture of quality service and sustainability.”
