B Corp governance score ranks Ecosurety in the top 5% worldwide in its group size.
Ecosurety became the first B Corp certified compliance scheme in 2020 and is now part of a community of 4,000 organisations across the globe who are committed to pursue purpose as well as profit. B Corps are for-profit companies that use the power of business to build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.
Businesses seeking the certification are externally assessed by B Lab to ensure they meet rigorous social and environmental standards which represent their commitment to goals outside of shareholder profit. The areas assessed by B Lab cover the five key impact areas of Governance, Workers, Community, Environment and Customers.
Recognising strength of mission and engagement
The ‘Best for the World’ are B Corps whose scores in one or more of the five impact areas reach the top 5% of all 4,000 certified B Corps worldwide.
Ecosurety has been recognised specifically for efforts in the area of Governance, achieving a high score of 23.3 out of 25. This high score recognises the strength of our mission and engagement, including real commitments to make a positive environmental impact.
Ethics and transparency also rated very highly, due to a commitment to publicly share our environmental goals and progress via annual impact reports and thanks to internal governance practices in place to promote ethical decision making.
An intrinsic part of our identity
Louise Granville-Smith, Chief Financial Officer of Ecosurety, has been involved with and has supported the company commitments to B Corp from the very beginning. She commented “We are thrilled to have achieved the recognition of Best for the World by B Corp. All B Corps must meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose, so this further recognition of our governance makes us incredibly proud.”
“Being a B Corp has become an intrinsic part of our identity as a business driving positive change and we will continue collaborating with the global B Corp community to improve and positively impact all our stakeholders.”
