This year then we became a Certified B Corporation™ (B Corp™), joining part of a growing, global community of businesses that are leading a movement for an inclusive, equitable and regenerative economy by pursuing purpose as well as profit.
The B Corp certification process is rigorous and means we meet high standards of social and environmental impact, and demonstrate accountability and transparency in our stakeholder governance, as well as a commitment to step into a certifiable framework for continuous improvement.
It addresses the entirety of a business’ operations and covers five impact areas of Governance, Workers/Colleagues, Community, Environment and Customers.
The aim of QuoLux™ and our Online Leadership and Management Centre is to substantially increase the number of adults who have relevant leadership and management skills to create employment, better jobs and sustainable economic growth.
We encourage leaders to apply their learning and to develop themselves, their employees and their workplace, and to positively impact stakeholders, the wider community and the planet.
We are proud in taking action for UN SDG 4 (target 4.4) and UN SDG 8 (target 8.3) and supporting leaders to #InspireBelief, realise their purpose and to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.
The SDGs can be realized with strong partnerships within engaged communities that have, at their centre, purpose-led leadership enhancing people and the planet. QuoLux™ is committed to being a proactive partner, stakeholder and business in shaping UN SDG 17 as leverage for all other Sustainable Development Goals.

Welcome to QuoLux™
Congratulations from a UK B Corp founding member
As I hadn't done this before, I found the structure from QuoLux™ and their advice invaluable, especially for Pukka's core purpose-based mission was to hold true and be in balance with profitability.
The combination of taking time out at QuoLux™ and their experienced business insights contributed highly to our success.
It is what QuoLux™ does
Becoming a better business
Both QuoLux™ and B Corp have aided us in being a better business, giving us great foundations and a framework for growth in the future. We truly believe at Hobbs House Bakery that businesses should be a force for good and it is brilliant to see QuoLux™ in becoming a B Corp has committed to this as well.
