The value of certification

There are all sorts of certifications to ‘prove’ that you run a good business. B-Corp, ISO, free range farming, CPD approved etc
Getting certified for all of these can cost a great deal of money for a small business.
But that shouldn’t stop you doing the right things. You can use these programmes to put systems and processes in place to improve your sustainability, quality, health and safety etc. Once you are running a good business doing the right things you can choose whether to apply for certification.
You might want the formal certification because they are an explicit requirement from your customers or you might want to use it for marketing purposes. If you’ve already done the preparation this can be done relatively quickly and easily.
