We are delighted to announce that GlobeScan has once again been named a ‘Best For The World’ honoree in recognition of the relationship we have with our employees and the significant positive impact we have created over the past year. We rank in the top 10% of all B Corps in the worker impact area on the B Impact Assessment, for our corporate culture, work environment, worker health and safety practices, and other employee-centric policies and practices.
‘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. 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 GlobeScan are redefining capitalism and showing that it actually can work for everyone.”
Commenting on our achievement, Corinne Fontaine, GlobeScan’s Chief Operating Officer, said: “As an insights and strategy firm helping leadership organizations globally build the trust they need to create a better future, we feel highly connected to the spirit of the B Corp movement. We are thrilled to receive this recognition for a second year running since first achieving our certification in August 2017.”
1,000 B Corps from 44 countries were named to the 2019 Best For The World lists, including Patagonia, Beautycounter, Dr. Bronner’s, TOMS, Seventh Generation, and Greyston Bakery. The 2019 Best For The World honorees are determined based on the verified B Impact Assessments of Certified B Corporations.
