Why we became a B-Corp
We are ecstatic to announce that this month Kiteline Health has become a Certified B Corporation (B Corp). B Corps are businesses committed to using their power for good. They believe in building inclusive, equitable and regenerative economic systems, through their day to day trade. They must meet high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability. We are so proud to now be counted among the 750 B Corps in the UK, and the nearly 5,000 strong global community of businesses changing the world.
We started Kiteline Health with a shared vision of helping millions of people to take control of what they can when it comes to their health. We want to make it as easy as possible to be proactive about your health - to stave off the many lifestyle diseases that are sadly becoming more and more commonplace, but also to help people manage their chronic conditions, symptoms and avert recurrence.

But, we also exist to make a profit. Our profit goal is no more important than our mission. As a for-profit social enterprise, we need a way to prove how genuine our mission-focus is. Not only that, we wanted to excel in areas beyond our mission (like environmental stewardship) - not because it’s a nice thing to do, but because it is a strategic imperative for every human to be proactive in protecting the planet and our natural resources.
To become a B Corp took months and months of work - creating and embedding new policies, implementing employee engagement surveys, combing through our impact data to show how much improvement each of our coachees has seen to date. Although it was gruelling, we relished the opportunity to improve our ways of working and get set up for sustainable growth.
Here’s to our next chapter as a B Corp!
