GloryBee is now a B Corp!
Posted on March 4, 2016.
GloryBee® was founded on the core values of faith, genuine relationships, healthy living and stewardship. We became a Certified B Corporation® because we believe that business can be a force for good and inspire change for the better. B Corp™ certification is our way of demonstrating our resounding commitment to our core values.
In 2015, we took the step to fill out the B Impact Assessment to see whether we could score well enough to be invited to join. The assessment covers all areas of our business operations as well as benchmarks us against other companies, from topics on governance and labor to products and environmental policies. Companies who score above 80 points are invited to join the B Corp Certified community; we were thrilled to have scored 88 points on our first attempt using our current sustainability practices!
We did particularly well on the environmental practices, worker benefits and training portions of the assessment.
Being a Certified B Corporation indicates that we meet the rigorous standards of social and environmental performance. To us, this is much more than just a stamp of approval. Maintaining our B Corp status will challenge us to be the company we strive to be and to improve on our sustainable practices as we grow and remind us to constantly consider how we are affecting our employees, the community, the environment and our clients.
Being a Certified B Corporation will give our business a road map for sustainable growth.
At GloryBee, we will Bee the Change! As a B Corp we will use business as a force for good and work toward the one unifying goal that all B Corporations share – to redefine success in business.
