WakaWaka Honored as Best for the World
We are proud to announce that we are honored in the Best for the World list 2016. Read on to find out what this exactly means.
Hello from sunny California!! Where we’re present at the first-annual Best for the World Celebration & Awards Ceremony at the University of California, Berkeley’s Haas Business School. Each year, B Corps doing the best in several areas of business, including community, employees, environment, customers and overall (the world), are given recognition for their leadership.
We’ve gone above and beyond—not only are we a B Corp, but we’ve just been named to the Best for the World list for scoring in the top 10 percent among B Corps worldwide in terms of customer impact. Whoop Whoop!!
B Impact Assessment
The full B Impact Assessment evaluates a company’s environmental performance through its facilities, materials, emissions, resource and energy use, and more. It assesses employee relationships in forms such as compensation, benefits, training and ownership opportunities.
Community scores are given by looking at supplier relations, diversity, involvement in the local community, and other product or service-related impact points. Customer performance is assessed based on the impact a company’s product or service has on those it serves. Honorees scoring in the top 10 percent of all categories set a gold standard for the high impact that business as a force for good can make in many disciplines around the world.
“The companies we are honoring as the best for the world represent the cutting edge of a global movement using business as a force for good. We are inspired by them, and feel deeply honored to join them in this historic and ground-breaking celebration,” said Bryan Welch, CEO of B the Change Media.
Thank you, dear Agents of Light! Your support has helped make us Best for the World: one of the companies making the most positive impact among B Corps worldwide. The 138 winning companies in the Overall category come from 15 industries and 17 countries! We couldn’t be more proud to be part of this list.
