Turningpoint recognized as a “Best For The World” B Corp for their significant improvement to their overall company impact
Paris, 4/10/2019 -- Turningpoint, a Certified B Corporation, has been recognized as a 2019 Best For The World: Changemaker in recognition of their significant improvement to their overall impact on their workers, clients, communities, the environment and governance. B Corps that earn the designation as a "Changemakers" set a gold standard for managing and improving your business' social and environmental impact over time.
Best For The World recognition is administered by B Lab, the global nonprofit that certifies and supports Certified B Corporations, which are for-profit companies dedicated to using business as a force for good. Today there are 3,000 Certified B Corporations across 64 countries and 150 industries, unified by one common goal: to redefine success in business.
B Corps meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corp Certification doesn't just evaluate a product or service, it assesses the overall positive impact of the company that stands behind it—like Turningpoint. Using the B Impact Assessment, B Lab evaluates how a company's operations and business model impact its workers, community, environment, and customers. To achieve the B Corp Certification, a company must achieve a score of at least 80 points on the assessment.
"We're incredibly proud of this year's Best For The World honorees," says Anthea Kelsick, Chief Marketing Officer of B Lab. "These inspiring companies represent the kinds of business models and impact-driven business strategies that are building a new economy—one that is inclusive, regenerative, and delivers value to all stakeholders, not just shareholders. To that end, B Corps like Turningpoint are redefining capitalism and showing that it actually can work for everyone."
"It's a real honor to be "Best for the World 2019" in the Changemakers category, and to be among the companies that have shown the greatest progress in 2019. But we won't allow ourselves to rest on our laurels, the award encourages us to keep improving every day" shares Laetitia Adhemar, Director at Turningpoint and CSR expert.
1,000 B Corps from 44 countries were named to the 2019 Best For The World lists, including Patagonia, Beautycounter, Dr. Bronner's, TOMS, Seventh Generation, and Greyston Bakery. The 2019 Best For The World honorees are determined based on the verified B Impact Assessments of Certified B Corporations. The full lists are available on https://bcorporation.net/
