High Impact is proud to announce that we are now a Certified B Corp™. So what’s the big deal about B?
First, let’s explain what it means. B Corps are for profit companies that value all stakeholders in business decisions—clients, employees, the environment, and their communities—instead of focusing single-mindedly on profits. What makes B Corp certification special is that it is a rigorous third-party verification of this commitment. It provides credible standards to tell the difference between 'good companies' and just good marketing.
Our certification also gives us access to a B Corp community made up of leaders of a global movement of people using business as a force for good. We are excited to use that collective knowledge to find ways to improve our impact assessment score to become even stronger in our social impact mission (you can see how we did on the impact assessment here--check back in the future to see how much we improve!).
We deeply believe that if all companies were B Corps, the world would be far more compassionate, healthy, and full of opportunity. We may be small, but we must do our part to move in that direction. That’s why we’ve become a B.
