We're B Corp
Making a Positive Impact
Eight Days a Week Print Solutions and our sister company Eight Plus, are proud to have achieved B Corp certification. As a print company, this certification is a significant accomplishment.
We were already well on our way with ISO45001, ISO27001, ISO9001, ISO14001 accreditations, alongside Carbon Neutral status, Cyber Essentials certified, and a Carbon Capture scheme. These strong foundations set us up for success and prepared us for the challenges we faced on our journey towards becoming B Corp certified.
Over the course of 18 months, we faced unique obstacles as a print and mailing company in meeting the rigorous standards set by the B Corp certification process. From carefully assessing our environmental impact to ensuring fair and ethical treatment of our workers, we took every step necessary to make a positive and sustainable impact.
Throughout this journey, we actively engaged with our community and demonstrated our commitment to social responsibility. Supporting local organisations and giving back to the communities in which we operate has always been a part of our ethos.
Our business underwent a thorough evaluation in five key impact areas: workers, environment, community, governance, and customers. We invite you to delve into the nitty-gritty details of our B Corp Certification and join us on this journey towards a more sustainable and responsible future.
Empowering Our Most Valuable Asset – We prioritise our employees’ financial security, health, and career development, fostering a culture of growth through training and promotions.
Ethical and Transparent Operations – Transparency, accountability, and ethical decision-making are core to our practices, ensuring our operations align with our values.
Sustainability in Action – Beyond compliance, we reduce our carbon footprint, use renewable energy sources, and ethically source materials for a better future.
Delivering Value with Purpose – We actively listen to customer needs, value their feedback, and continuously improve to build trust-based, lasting relationships.
Making a Difference Together – Through partnerships, volunteer programs, and engagement, we support local organisations and initiatives that matter.

“Why did we go for B Corp? It was the obvious next step as part of our overall sustainable business plan. Our business operating model was already underpinned with the four ISO accreditations we hold, plus carbon neutral and cyber essentials, which was a great foundation to put us on the right path towards B Corp certification.
It’s been a long road but the journey has definitely been worth it, and it is an incredibly proud moment to now officially be certified as a B Corp!”Lance Hill
