We are thrilled and proud to announce that we became a certified B Corp in March 2016! B Corporations are for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. The B Corp seal that will now be used throughout our website and materials represents what Inc. Magazine called “the highest standard for socially responsible business.” Today, there are more than 1,600 Certified B Corps in 47 countries from 120 different industries working together toward one unifying goal: to redefine success in business (https://www.bcorporation.net/what-are-b-corps).
We help organizations improve their quadruple bottom line, which means helping them reduce negative impacts and create positive impacts for the environment, community, local culture, and the Hawaiian economy. While there are hundreds of certified B Corps in the U.S., we are one of only eight certified B Corporations in Hawaiʻi. We hope to help other organizations become B Corp certified and continue their commitments to creating positive impacts for local businesses that support our environment and local community.
