Berghaus is Pentland's first brand to get B Corp certification
Berghaus continues its drive for ever higher social and environmental standards. The Pentland-owned British outdoor brand is now B Corp-certified with the North East England-based firm “joining a globally recognised community that uses business as a force for good”.
What's more, Berghaus said it has now pledged to continue improving its approach to responsible business practices.
The latest move upwards in the world of sustainability sees its B Corp status awarded “after a rigorous assessment that covered governance, workers, community, customers, and environment”.
This extends a thread that goes back to the brand’s foundation in 1966 and over half a century of making long-lasting and repairable gear. “Today, Berghaus still offers its free repairs service (Repairhaus) and its dedication to quality and durability remain as strong as ever”, it noted.
Marking the first brand in the Pentland portfolio to achieve the status, brand director Charlie Pym said: “Quite rightly, there's a high bar for achieving it, and we've worked extremely hard to show that we're worthy of the status. This process also highlights areas we need to improve, which is critical for our continued progress. Our mission is to open up the outdoors because that's where the best of life is lived.”
He added: “B Corp certification is not the beginning of our journey, and it’s far from the end, but it’s another significant step forward in striving to make the world a better place with Berghaus in it. Everything we’re currently doing is in service of inspiring more people to spend more time in nature.”
