Atlas made it on the 2018 Best For The World Honorees list of B Corps for Governance!

We have to say, as a start-up we’re so proud of this achievement! For those of you who don’t know yet what the B Corp certification is: “B Corp is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk. B Corps are for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.” more info here.

So what were we recognized for?

Atlas is being recognized for creating innovative governance structures to protect the mission of our business for the long term. The Best For Governance list is based on an independent, comprehensive assessment administered by the nonprofit B Lab. 

 Atlas is honored in the Best For Governance list, which includes businesses that earned a Governance score in the top 10 percent of more than 2,400 Certified B Corporations on the B Impact Assessment. The full assessment measures a company’s impact on its workers, community, customers and the environment. To certify as B Corporations, companies like Atlas must complete the full assessment and have their answers verified by B Lab.

The Governance portion of the B Impact Assessment evaluates a company’s overall mission, ethics, accountability and transparency. It measures whether the company has adopted a social or environmental mission, and how it engages its employees, board members and the community to achieve that mission. This section assesses employee access to financial information, customers’ opportunities to provide feedback, and the diversity of the company’s governing bodies. Honorees scoring in the top 10 percent set a gold standard for the high impact that business as a force for good can make around the world.

The 233 Best For Governance companies come from 77 different industries and 16 countries.

We hope that maybe, you too will join us in this journey of redefining success and bringing purpose right next to profit.
