We are elated to announce that Change by Degrees is now a certified B Corporation! This is more than just a title; it’s an embodiment of our commitment to harness business as a force for good, aligning profits with purpose.
Understanding B Corp Certification
In a world where many businesses put profit above all, the B Corp movement seeks to challenge this norm. B Lab, the non-profit behind the B Corp Certification, believes in redefining success in business. A certified B Corporation meets rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. They aren’t just driven by profits but are legally committed to benefiting all stakeholders – workers, customers, communities, and the environment.
Why This Matters
At the heart of the B Corp ethos is the belief that businesses should do no harm and aim to benefit all. This conviction transcends mere words. B Corps genuinely believe in the interdependence of every stakeholder in the business world and acknowledge the responsibility we bear to each other and to future generations. This approach offers a stark contrast to the prevailing model of capitalism that often prioritizes shareholder interests over those of employees, communities, and the environment.
Continuous Commitment to Excellence
Being a B Corp isn’t a one-time achievement; it’s an ongoing journey of commitment. B Corps strive for continuous improvement and have to re-verify every three years to ensure they still uphold the high standards set by B Lab.
We’re proud to join an international community of over 3,500 businesses across 150 industries in 80 countries, all working together to shift our economic system. We will ensure that every decision we make considers the interests of all stakeholders in our operations.
A Vision of a New Economic Future
This certification aligns with our vision of an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economy. It’s not about being the best in the world, but the best for the world. We believe that all businesses should be a force for good. With B Corp Certification, we’re one step closer to this dream.
Thank you for being part of our journey. Together, we’re creating a world where business success is measured not just by profit margins, but by the positive impact we have on the world.
Join us in celebrating this milestone and in furthering the movement that believes in benefiting all.
