“We are excited about the long-term goals we can accomplish in sustainability and the recognition Rubicon has received based on our positive impact on our employees, community, customers and the environment.” The Environment portion of the B Impact Assessment evaluates a company’s environmental performance through its facilities, materials, emissions and resource and energy use.
Companies answer questions about their transportation/distribution channels and the environmental impact of their supply chain.
The Governance portion of the assessment evaluates a company’s overall mission, ethics, accountability and transparency.
“With the rise of anger at a system that feels rigged, people are hungry for companies like Rubicon Global, who are changing the system by building businesses that seek to create the greatest positive impact,” said Jay Coen Gilbert, cofounder of B Lab, in a statement.
“Best For The World is the only list of businesses that uses comprehensive, comparable, third-party-validated data about a company’s social and environmental performance.
As consumers, talent and investors increasingly demand transparent, values-aligned businesses to buy from, work at and invest in, companies will need to not just be the best in the world but best for the world.
The company’s goal is to help businesses, governments and organizations confidently execute on their sustainability goals, always with an eye toward those solutions that have long-term economic viability.
