We are thrilled to announce that CSBM has been named a Certified B Corporation. Benefit corporations, or b corporations for short, differ from traditional corporations through their mission to use business to create positive social and environmental impact in their communities. CSBM is proud to join this movement of over 800 Certified B Corporations who are committed to addressing society’s greatest challenges and improving the quality of life around the world.
“Certified B Corporations are leading a global movement to redefine success in business. By voluntarily meeting higher standards of transparency, accountability, and performance, Certified B Corps are distinguishing themselves in a cluttered marketplace by offering a positive vision of a better way to do business.”
Corporations can become Certified B Corporations by taking the B Impact Assessment, given by the nonprofit group B Lab. This assessment measures a company’s overall social and environmental performance by assessing the company’s impact on its stakeholders. The median score is 80, the average score is 97, and CSBM’s score was 113!
