What's Working with B Corps

June 22, 2015

It’s no surprise that many of our suppliers are B Corporations, companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab “to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.”

Recently, Marissa Rosen from the Huffington Post blogged about the benefits of working for a B Corp: “Certified B Corps are redefining how business can change the world, but all stakeholders reap the benefits. . . . It helps consumers distinguish a better, transparent business model while shedding light on the private sector’s ability to create drastic impacts in sustainability.”

Read more about what’s working with B Corps. We are encouraged by how they are making a difference for employees with worker benefits, social benefits, development opportunities, and more.
