• B-Corp Certified


    Date Awarded: November 2023

    Millmead Optical Group has achieved B-Corp certification, making a significant milestone in the company’s journey towards sustainability and social responsibility.

    B-Corp Certification is a designation that a business is meeting high standards of verified performance, accountability, and transparency on factors from employee benefits and charitable giving to supply chain practices and input materials. In order to achieve certification, a company must: 

    • Demonstrate high social and environmental performance by achieving a B Impact Assessment score of 80 or above and passing our risk review. Multinational corporations must also meet baseline requirement standards. 
    • Make a legal commitment by changing their corporate governance structure to be accountable to all stakeholders, not just shareholders, and achieve benefit corporation status if available in their jurisdiction. 
    • Exhibit transparency by allowing information about their performance measured against B Lab’s standards to be publicly available on their B-Corp profile on B Lab’s website.  

    As leaders in the movement for economic systems change, B-Corps reap remarkable benefits. They build trust with consumers, communities, and suppliers; attract and retain employees; and draw mission-aligned investors. As they are required to undergo the verification process every three years in order to recertify, B-Corps are by definition also focused on continuous improvement, leading to their long-term resiliency.
