Outdoor performance clothing specialist Berghaus has achieved B Corporation status and will now report on its social and environmental impacts with a reassessment every three years. Berghaus is the first Pentland Brands business to gain B Corp status, joining just 1200 other UK companies from a wide range of sectors.
Berghaus, founded in 1966, posted annual sales of £70.2 million for FY’21 along with an operating loss of £4.4m following supply chain issues that have now been addressed.
Brand director Charlie Pym said: “We’re proud to be B Corp certified. Quite rightly there’s a high bar for achieving it and we’ve worked extremely hard to show that we’re worthy of the status. This process also highlights areas we need to improve, which is critical for our continued progress.”
