B Corp success for Eight Days a Week

Lance Hill

Nottingham-based Eight Days A Week Print Solutions (EDWPS) has been awarded B Corp Certification.

As a B Corp in the direct mail and digital print industry, the firm is now counted among businesses that are leading a global movement for an inclusive, equitable and regenerative economy.

The process started in February 2022 and was confirmed on Monday (October 2) following a substantial assessment and review period.

Eight Days is now one of 1,500 UK businesses to have achieved the B Corp Certification.

The scope also includes its subsidiary business, Eight Plus, which was only launched last March.

Lance Hill, managing director of EDWPS and Eight Plus, said: “This is an incredibly proud moment for us, on top of many other achievements over the last three or four years where we have continually pushed the business forward to be best in class, which has always been my ambition.

“Going for B Corp Certification was the next logical step on our journey around social, environmental performance,
transparency, and accountability. Whilst the process has been rigorous it was made simpler by our ISO foundations across the four standards we already hold for quality, environmental, information security and health & safety (9001, 14001, 27001 and 45001 respectively), plus already being carbon neutral was also a factor.

“All of our certifications form the backbone of our business and will continue to do so going forward. We will never rest on our laurels or be complacent as continual improvement is what differentiates us and it is what our clients expect to see, or even demand.”

EDWPS employs 27 staff across both its businesses and is on track to deliver a combined turnover of £14m this year.
