Becoming a B Corp means joining a growing community of companies across the world who are committed to using business as a force for good. To receive this certification, we had to provide evidence of socially and environmentally responsible practices – including our sustainability projects, the price we pay to the farmers, energy supplies, waste management, diversity, and corporate transparency. Finally, to complete the certification, we have legally embedded our commitment to people and the planet besides profit into our company articles.
What is B Corp?
Certified B Corporations® are for-profit companies that use the power of business to build a more inclusive and sustainable economy. They meet the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.
Unlike traditional corporations, B Corps are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on all their stakeholders, including workers, suppliers, community, consumers, and the environment. The B Corp community works toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of high-quality jobs with dignity and purpose.
Today, there are over 3600+ Certified B Corps around the globe. For us, becoming a B Corp serves as a guide to help us continue to challenge the status quo and have an ever greater impact on people and the planet.
