Reheat team B Corp Certification

Northumberland based low carbon heat firm celebrates earning B Corp certification

Northumberland based low carbon heat firm, Reheat, has become the latest company in the region to achieve B Corp Certification, a globally recognised verification of businesses meeting high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability.

Achieving a score of 88.7 (out of 200), Reheat exceeded the benchmark for companies in its sector and of the same size having gone through a rigorous assessment across five ‘Impact Areas’ laid out by B Corp verification body, B Lab: workers, environment, governance, customers and community. 

The median score for businesses who complete the assessment is currently 51, according to B Corp. Reheat now joins 22 other businesses in the Northeast with B Corp status, and will undergo recertification in three years where it must increase its score to demonstrate continuous improvement to B Lab.

Reheat Managing Director, Ben Tansey, commented: “This is a huge day for Reheat. I am immensely proud and have celebrated with and congratulated the team, who are the real reason we’ve been able to achieve B Corp status. 

“We embarked on this journey knowing our values aligned with the B Corp ethos, but the incredibly rigorous process leading to this moment means we can now demonstrate it. 

“B Corp pushes us to be the very best business we can possibly be, underlining our commitment to people and the planet, whilst holding us accountable and placing demands on us to continuously improve, a challenge that we have embraced.”
