B Corporation

We are a certified B Corporation or B Corp. Certified B Corps are companies verified by B Lab to meet high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability. Our most challenging problems cannot be solved by governments and nonprofits alone. By harnessing the power of business, B Corps commit to positively impact all stakeholders – workers, communities, customers, and our planet.

Best for the World 2022™: Governance

We have been awarded “Best for The World 2022™” for our top 5% score in the Governance category. Every year, B Lab recognizes the top-performing B Corps creating the greatest impact through their businesses. These B Corps are named Best for the World™ as their verified scores in the five impact areas evaluated on the B Impact Assessment community, customers, environment, governance, and workers-are amongst the global top 5% in their corresponding size group. These businesses are proving that competing not only to be the best in the world, but the best for the world, is a winning strategy, and they can lead the way as more businesses continue to join the movement that is transforming the global economy to benefit all people, communities, and the planet. This is the second year we have been awarded “Best for The World™” for our Governance.
