Certified B Corporation:
Traditional Medicinals® became a Certified B Corp in 2010.
B Lab is a nonprofit organization dedicated to using the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. B Lab drives systemic change through three interrelated initiatives:
- building a community of Certified B Corporations to make it easier for all of us to tell the difference between ‘good companies’ and just good marketing;
- accelerating the growth of impact investing through use of B Lab’s GIIRS Ratings (Global Impact Investing Rating System) and Analytics platform; and
- promoting legislation creating a new corporate form — the benefit corporation — that meets higher standards of corporate purpose, accountability, and transparency.
A company can become a “B Corp” through implementation of rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. A minimum score of 80 out of 200 points must be earned. Certification criteria focus on four key areas:
- governance (corporate accountability, transparency);
- workers (benefits, compensation, worker ownership);
- community business model (fair trade, civic engagement, giving);
- environmental business model (organic, non-GMO).
