Proof of this is endorsed by other credentials like FSC Certification, ISO 14001, BPIF Zero Foil 2 Landfill and being the first company in the UK to achieve World Land Trust certified carbon balanced packaging accreditation. It's not just about being passionate though, it's about commitment to the community and environment. Initiatives like the Curtis Centre of Excellence, which encourages the next generation of packaging designers, and partnering with organizations like Bee1 to promote pollinator health and biodiversity through the planting of wildflowers. Becoming a B Corps is an endorsement of all that Curtis believes in, stands for and demonstrates its commitment to creating a better world for all.
