Who’s the Best For the World?

Who’s the Best For the World?

Ever wonder which companies are the best? No, not the best at making money – everyone talks about that. I mean the best at making a better world. The B Corp Best for the World List honors businesses creating the most overall social and environmental impact. These companies are creating higher quality jobs, improving the quality of life in our communities and addressing our most challenging environmental problems.

The Best for the World honorees have earned an overall score in the top 10% on the B Impact Assessment, a comprehensive assessment a company’s impact on its workers, community and the environment. Furthermore, each honored company is a Certified B Corporation, a new type of company using the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. They have met rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency.

 

 

So who are the best companies? This year, 67 businesses from over 20 countries and 25 industries have made the list. Highlighted companies include Roshan, Afghanistan’s leading telecommunications provider, One Pacific Coast Bank, a pioneer triple-bottom line, community development bank, and Cooperative Home Care Associates, the nation’s largest worker-owned cooperative, providing high-quality home care services to elders and individuals living with disabilities.

There are also a number of companies to help you create a better office and home. These include:

Greyston Bakery – most famous for its long-standing status as Ben & Jerry’s brownie supplier and for having an open-hiring policy that provides the people of Yonkers, NY with employment opportunity regardless of work history.

W.S. Badger Co – manufacturer of Badger Balm and other USDA organic body care products.

Give Something Back Office Supplies – California’s largest independent office supply company, with giving back to communities integral to its core mission and purpose.

Alter Eco Foods -  provider of  fair Trade, Organic and Carbon Neutral foods which works with small scale agricultural cooperatives in the Global South to provide a fairer deal and market access for small farmers.

Atayne – maker of high performing, outdoor and athletic apparel from 100% recycled materials.

Little Pickle Press – publisher of high quality, high impact media for children, dedicated to helping parents and educators cultivate conscious, responsible little people by stimulating explorations of the meaningful topics of their generation.
