Best For The World

The B Corp (Benefit Corporations) Best For The World recognizes companies creating the most impact for a better world.  They get a designation as a Certified B Corporation and recognized for creating the most positive social and environmental impact. Their web site: identifies the group as follows:

B Corp certification is to sustainable business what LEED certification is to green building or Fair Trade certification is to coffee. B Corps are certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. Today, there is a growing community of more than 800 Certified B Corps from 27 countries and 60 industries working together toward 1 unifying goal: to redefine success in business.

We have one of these Best For The World Corporations right here in Delray Beach, Florida, the first south Florida firm with this designation. Among other things it does, consulting firm Sequel Systems Inc. helps clients obtain eco-friendly building certification; offers employee’s unlimited time off; pays all employee health insurance costs; provides an electric car; and all employees must volunteer in the community.

How does your company stack up?
