A huge moment: &Open is now a certified B Corp

In an industry rife with waste, we're showing that gifting doesn't have to be wasteful.

We envision a world where businesses prioritize the well-being of our planet and its inhabitants in every decision they make.

That's the world we're actively building at &Open, and we could not be more proud to announce that we have officially been certified as a B Corp.

We’ve built a platform that gives you the power not to get a gift. And if you do choose to accept your gift, you do so knowing that it’s been sourced from suppliers that meet the highest levels of responsibility.

For us, this is the achievement of a big ambition, and a very public recognition of our commitment to a better way of doing business.

78% of corporate gifts are not used, loved or cherished.Better gifts mean less waste.

What is a B Corp?

B Corporations are companies that meet high standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency, as certified by B Lab, a global non-profit that creates standards, policies, tools, and programs that aim to shift the behavior, culture, and structural underpinnings of capitalism.

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.

Certified B Corps are leaders in the global movement for an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economy, and we are incredibly proud to be among them.

Fewer, better gifts

Although this is a journey we’ve been on for three years now, it’s only the beginning. The standards we’re at now, though our current best, will be our future worst.

We’re working towards a world where businesses send fewer, better gifts. Powered by a platform with choice built in, we’re enabling companies that care to have a smaller impact on our planet, and a bigger impact on the people that matter to them.

The journey to B Corp is a long one, and it has been a full company effort – thank you to our incredible team who have got us to this point. We can’t wait to see where we go next.
