B Corp announces Benefacto as a ‘Best for the World’ company

Molly Lipson | 21 June 18

Benefacto was recently crowned one of the Best For The World companies by B Lab, the non-profit organisation behind the concept of B Corps. These are verified businesses which have a positive impact on people and the planet. Their message is simple: businesses can make profit and do good at the same time.

B Corp is a global movement and only 44 UK companies won an award – we are extremely proud to be one of them, receiving this accolade in the ‘Best for Customers’ category. The companies in this list are recognised for addressing and offering a solution to a social problem, promoting public benefit and providing a service targeted toward underserved populations. By providing employee volunteers to small charities across a whole range of causes we’re able to help ensure these organisations can continue to run much needed services and sessions to those in the community who most need support. This not only benefits charities and service-users, but also our corporate members, the individual volunteers and society more widely.

As a B Corp we are also concerned about the environment, the ethical supply chain, and diversity & inclusion. We’re working hard to make sure we comply with the B Corp criteria in these areas as much as possible and are increasingly seeing these aspects at play in our organisational practices. We’re looking forward to improving and continuing to be a business for good over the next year and beyond.
