Embracing Sustainability: George Walkers' Journey as a B Corp Certified Circular Business

In an age where sustainability is no longer just a buzzword but a necessity, George Walkers stands as a beacon of responsible business practices. Our commitment to the environment and the community is embodied in our role as a B Corp certified circular business. At George Walkers, we specialize in providing high-quality, second-hand office furniture, ensuring that businesses can furnish their spaces sustainably without compromising on style or functionality.

Our Mission: Redefining Office Spaces Sustainably

George Walkers was founded on the principle that great office spaces shouldn't come at the expense of our planet. We recognised the need for sustainable alternatives in the office furniture market, which is why we decided to focus on second-hand furniture. Our mission is to reduce waste, promote reuse, and provide businesses with affordable, stylish, and eco-friendly office solutions.

The Circular Economy: Our Business Model

The concept of the circular economy is at the heart of George Walkers. Unlike the traditional linear economy, which follows a 'take, make, dispose' pattern, the circular economy aims to keep products and materials in use for as long as possible. This model minimises waste and reduces the need for new resources.

At George Walkers, we source high-quality second-hand office furniture, refurbish it to like-new condition, and offer it to businesses looking for sustainable furnishing options. By extending the lifecycle of office furniture, we help reduce the demand for new products and the associated environmental impact.

B Corp Certification: A Commitment to Higher Standards

Being a B Corp certified business means that George Walkers meets the highest standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. This certification is awarded to businesses that balance purpose and profit, considering the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment.

To achieve B Corp certification, we underwent a rigorous assessment process evaluating our impact on various stakeholders. This certification reflects our dedication to using business as a force for good, ensuring that our operations positively impact society and the planet.

The Benefits of Choosing Second-Hand Office Furniture

Opting for second-hand office furniture from George Walkers comes with a multitude of benefits:

  1. Environmental Impact: By choosing refurbished furniture, you help reduce waste and the demand for new resources, significantly lowering your carbon footprint.
  2. Cost-Effective: Second-hand furniture is often more affordable than new items, allowing businesses to allocate their budget more efficiently.
  3. High Quality: Our furniture is carefully selected and refurbished to ensure it meets high standards of quality and durability.
  4. Unique Style: Second-hand pieces often come with unique designs and histories, adding character and charm to your office space.

Our Impact: Real Stories, Real Change

At George Walkers, we believe in the power of stories to inspire change. We've had the privilege of working with numerous businesses that have transformed their office spaces sustainably. From small startups to large corporations, our clients have embraced the benefits of second-hand furniture, contributing to a more sustainable future.

One such success story is our partnership with a local tech startup that wanted to create a vibrant and eco-friendly office space. By choosing our refurbished furniture, they were able to save on costs while achieving a unique and modern aesthetic. Their employees appreciated the comfortable and stylish environment, and the company took pride in its commitment to sustainability.
