Dorothy is powered by Advanced Clothing Solutions, a certified B-Corporation that use innovative technology as part of the cleaning process to reduce environmental impact.

Achieving B Corp status has been a critical goal for Advanced Clothing Solutions, and we are immensely proud to have secured this prestigious certification. There are currently less than 3000 B Corp-certified companies in the U.K.

To be counted among these forward-thinking brands is an amazing endorsement of our efforts. It has been a long road to achieving this incredible milestone, and we will continue to refine and improve our practices to ensure that we maintain our high B Impact Assessment score. We firmly believe that circular fashion is the industry’s future, and that brides should embrace sustainable processes.

What is B-Corp?

B Corp is a status awarded by a non-profit organisation called B Lab, that was started in 2006 as a way to help companies maximise the positive impact of their business. It has become a powerful community of corporations across the world, all working to change the way that business gets done.

(In case you’re wondering, the B came from “be the change you want to see”.)

How to become B-Corp Certified?

Being B Corp means that everything about your company has been examined and approved, from your ownership structure to your suppliers and the sustainability of your offices. The application process is extremely thorough and passing it proves that your company has a deep commitment to changing not just the way they do business, but the way business is done all over the world.

What is our B-Corp Score?

Every member of the B Corp community is given a score based on all the points checked in their application. The areas assessed are Governance, Workers, Community, Environment & Customers. The threshold score for certification is 80 and ours is 150.9. The score is reviewed every three years and we’re looking to drive ours up by examining everything about how we work.
