Today, The Green Engineer was recognized for creating extraordinary positive impact as a business based on an independent, comprehensive assessment administered by the nonprofit, B Lab.
The Green Engineer is honored in the 2019 Best For The World Overall list, which includes businesses that earned scores in the top 10 percent of more than 3,000 Certified B Corporations across all categories on the B Impact Assessment. The Green Engineer is also an honoree in the Best for The World Environment, Best for the World Workers and Best for the World Changemaker categories as well. Best For The World recognition is administered by B Lab, the global nonprofit that certifies and supports Certified B Corporations, which are for-profit companies dedicated to using business as a force for good. Today, there are 3,000 Certified B Corporations across 64 countries and 150 industries, unified by one common goal: to redefine success in business.
B Corps meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corp Certification doesn’t just evaluate a product or service, it assesses the overall positive impact of the company that stands behind it—like The Green Engineer. Using the B Impact Assessment, B Lab evaluates how a company’s operations and business model impact its workers, community, environment, and customers. To achieve the B Corp Certification, a company must achieve a score of at least 80 points on the assessment.
“We’re incredibly proud of this year’s Best For The World honorees,” says Anthea Kelsick, Chief Marketing Officer of B Lab. “These inspiring companies represent the kinds of business models and impact-driven business strategies that are building a new economy—one that is inclusive, regenerative, and delivers value to all stakeholders, not just shareholders. To that end, B Corps like The Green Engineer are redefining capitalism and showing that it actually can work for everyone.”
1,000 B Corps from 44 countries were named to the 2019 Best For The World lists. B Lab simultaneously released separate lists recognizing top-performing B Corporations as Best For Environment, Best For Customers, Best For Governance, Best For Community, Best For Workers, and Best Changemaker, which can be found at 2019-Best-For-The-World.
