With a busy week behind you and the weekend within reach, there’s no shame in taking things a bit easy on Friday afternoon. With this in mind, every Friday TriplePundit will give you a fun, easy read on a topic you care about. So, take a break from those endless email threads, and spend five minutes catching up on the latest trends in sustainability and business.
According to the nonprofit B Lab, “B Corp certification is to sustainable business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk.”
We at Triple Pundit received our B Corporation status last month — joining more than 950 other forward-thinking companies across all industries that are are well known for their positive impacts on both people and planet.
The community of Certified B Corporations has grown from just over 600 companies in 2012 to 990 today — hailing from 60 industries and 32 countries unified by one common goal: to redefine success in business. Top names include Patagonia, Method and Klean Kanteen, but the B Corp community also includes loads of smaller companies that are committed to social and environmental responsibility – including Triple Pundit.
B Lab makes it easy to find a B Corp by industry and location so you can support companies that share your values. Have a favorite? Tell us about it on social media for a chance to win!
