OXFORD, United Kingdom, Jul. 03 /CSRwire/ - ClimateCare has been honoured for creating positive social and environmental impact by the non-profit B Lab, for the third consecutive year.
Following a rigorous and comprehensive assessment of the company’s impact on its workers, community, and the environment – ClimateCare has been ranked first in the UK B Corp ‘Best for the World List’.
The ‘Best for the World List’ represents the gold standard for high impact companies and honours those companies whose ground-breaking business models are improving our world.
Kate Sandle, Community Manager B Lab UK says:
“As consumers, talent and investors increasingly demand transparent, values aligned businesses to buy from, work at and invest in, companies need not just to be Best in the World, but Best for the World to be the most successful.
ClimateCare epitomises this profit for purpose approach, demonstrating positive impacts through its own operations and helping businesses take responsibility for their social and environmental impacts through innovative programmes to cut carbon and improve lives.”
Edward Hanrahan, CEO, ClimateCare says:
‘’As more and more businesses recognise the importance of focusing on Purpose as much as Profit, we are delighted to have achieved the highest score of any B Corp in the UK and to be acknowledged as Best for the World for the third year running.
This continued recognition of ClimateCare’s profit for purpose business model and the certified positive impact it has for people and the environment is a great validation for both the ClimateCare team and our customers. We hope it encourages others to follow their lead and partner with us to take responsibility for their climate impacts through our Climate+Care programmes.”
