We are officially a Certified B Corporation!
What does that mean?
B Corps are for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit, B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency—stuff we’ve always been passionate about.
B Corp’s philosophy is to inspire all businesses to compete not only to be the best in the world, but to be the Best for the World®. And given that everything we do is to build a world where everyone is truly nourished (including the soil), it felt like a natural fit for us. So, we did what we had to do to get involved.
We worked to meet the performance requirements for environment, workers, customers, community, and governance.
We put legal requirements and provisions in place to ensure that sustainability will always be a part of our DNA—no matter how much we grow.
We completed the B Impact Assessment, which requires a minimum score of 80/200. We got a 91 in 2018, and are committed to increasing our score every year.
And then we made it official by signing the B Lab Term sheet and Declaration of Interdependence.
What does it mean for you?
It means we’re a brand you can believe in, now more than ever. It means we guarantee our employees, retailers, vendors and consumers can be proud of doing business with us, that we will stay real and socially conscious, and that we’re in this for the long haul. And it means you’re helping B Lab, its community of over 2,100 certified companies, and us redefine success in business.
B Corp’s philosophy is to inspire all businesses to compete not only to be the best in the world, but to be the Best for the World®.
But most of all, it means you’re a part of this world-changing movement.
