Edge is proud to announce that we have recently become a Certified B Corporation®. This certification provides external measurement and validation of our commitment to sustainability. It provides our clients with the confidence that we ‘practice what we preach’. Read on for more information about what it means to be a B Corp.
B Corporations are leaders of the global movement of people using business as a force for goodTM.
There are over 1,600 Certified B Corporations from more than 130 industries in nearly 48 countries with 1 unifying goal – to redefine success in business.
B Corps are important because they inspire all businesses to compete not only to be the best in the world, but to be the best for the world.
Certified B Corporations meet higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.
It’s like Fair Trade certification but for the whole business, not just a bag of coffee (or USDA Organic certification, but not just for a carton of milk; or LEED certification, but not just for a building).
The performance standards B Corps meet are comprehensive, transparent and verified. They measure a company’s impact on all its stakeholders (e.g. workers, suppliers, community, customers and the environment).
Unlike traditional corporations, Certified B Corporations are required to consider the impact of their decisions, not only on their shareholders, but also on their stakeholders (e.g., workers, suppliers, community, consumers, and the environment).
