It is with great excitement that I reveal that inKind has earned certification as a B Corp!


What
Certified B Corps are companies that meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. B Corp certification is to sustainable business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk.


Who
The B Corp community is made up of over 2,000 companies in 50 countries from 130 industries with 1 unifying goal: to redefine success in business. Certified B Corps include Patagonia and Ben & Jerry's.


Why
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.

The values we hold and the actions we take are guided by principles perfectly aligned with the B Corp ethos. We want to be publicly held accountable for these beliefs and join a community of like-minded companies from whom we can learn and share best practices.


How
B Corps are certified by the nonprofit B Lab. To become certified, a company must score 80 out of 200 points on the B Lab Impact Assessment, and agree to the B Corp Term Sheet and Declaration of Interdependence. It took us about four months from initial application until we received the certification.
