CSR Press Release

Carnegie Becomes a Certified B Corporation

The first textile & wallcovering company to earn B Corp Certification

Submitted by: Carnegie

ROCKVILLE CENTRE, N.Y., May 09 /CSRwire/ - Carnegie is proud to announce that we have become a Certified B Corporation. B Corp certification is a rigorous third party assessment performed by the non profit organization B Lab. Carnegie’s standing in areas such as social and environmental performance were measured and tallied with complete transparency by B Lab.

B Corporations are a new kind of company that uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. It’s like LEED or Fair Trade certification, but for a business, not just a building or a bag of coffee. There are currently more than 950 certified B Corporations in over 32 countries and 60 industries. Carnegie joins such prestigious companies as Patagonia, Seventh Generation, Method, Ben & Jerry’s, Warby Parker and Etsy.

Cliff Goldman, President of Carnegie commented: “Becoming a Certified B Corporation was a natural step for Carnegie. We have always believed that our business has a higher social and environmental responsibility beyond simply profit. The well being of our employees, clients and planet have always been part of our mission. The B Corp assessment is both documentation and verification of that approach. In addition it provides us a framework to measure our success in these areas against other leaders in a variety of industries.”

“B Lab is excited to have Carnegie on board as a Certified B Corporation. The architectural and design industry has a critical impact on the planet and we hope Carnegie will inspire others to join the movement of people using business as a force for good.” – Andrew Kassoy, Founder

Carnegie believes that the B Corporation movement is perfectly aligned with how progressive businesses will participate in the future world economy. The idea that making money, while making a difference will become the new normal. Carnegie is proud to be part of that movement.
