TriplePundit, a leading online publication addressing the bottom line in sustainable business, recently joined over 900 other forward-thinking global businesses in becoming a Certified B Corporation. TriplePundit completed the Impact Assessment to benchmark its practices against B Lab’s established guidelines of operational standards, and achieved an overall score of 88 out of a minimal 80 to qualify as a B Corp.
By voluntarily meeting established scales of transparency, accountability and performance, Certified B Corps distinguish themselves by upholding a rigorous way of doing business – taking into account not only their shareholders, but also all stakeholders involved.
B Lab believes that government and the nonprofit sector are necessary, but insufficient, means to address society's present challenges, and that business must also create positive value for society. The B Corp movement offers a concrete, market-based and scalable solution to using business as a force of good.
“We joined to benefit from the company of like minded companies. B Corp manifests the same philosophy that we are committed to promoting and it makes sense to be a formal part of it,” says Nick Aster, Founder and Publisher of TriplePundit.
Triple Pundit is a new-media company for highly conscious business leaders. We have grown to become one of the world’s most well read websites on ethical, sustainable & profitable business with over 350,000 unique monthly readers.
