Beyond Philanthropy is a certified B Corporation

Beyond Philanthropy is now a certified B Corporation

Since mid-last year, Beyond Philanthropy has been in touch with B Labs, the American non-profit organisation which developed the B Corporation certification. B Labs certifies corporations and organisations that meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. Among other considerations, B Corps pay particular attention to the creation of benefits for all stakeholders, not just shareholders, the use of renewable energy, and accessibility of the B Corps Impact Report online. By now, there are almost 1,300 B Corps in over 40 countries and 120 different industries, which are all striving not to be the best in but for the world.
