What’s a B Corp?
In 2006 the non-profit B Lab began certifying companies that meet high standards of social and environmental impact. B Corp certification covers five areas of concern: Governance, Workers, Community, Environment, and Customers. Applicants are awarded a B Impact Score based on their practices in each category. Of the first 100,000 companies that took B Corp’s Impact Assessment, only 3.5% have made it through the rigorous vetting process and attained the minimum required 80 points for certification. On average companies scored 50.9 points. When you patronize these companies, you can feel confident that you are supporting leaders in the movement toward more ethical business standards.
What Does This Mean For Liforme?
Significantly, we didn’t need to make any significant changes to how we were already operating to get certified. In fact, the only supplier we changed as part of the process was our bank! We’ve always focused, from the ground up, on building a genuinely good business and being innovative, eco-friendly, socially conscious, customer-forward, community-focused, and a great place to work.
Our B Corp certification reassures the belief we’ve always maintained: a successful business can also be a force for good.
Through our Live For More Foundation, we will continue to work hard and channel company profits into our giving back initiatives, which focus on the environment, wildlife preservation and social justice.
