Innpact Joins the Growing B Corp Movement26.11.2015
Innpact is proud to be the first certified B Corporation in Luxembourg !
Upon our return from Sicily where Innpact held its team building event during which we helped a food bank sort food to be distributed to charities and we visited a cooperative farm which produces organic food on land confiscated from the mafia, we were greeted with the fantastic news that we have earned our B Corporation Certification.
Certified B Corporations are not just green, socially-minded businesses. To attain the B Corp certification, a company must meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, legally expand their corporate responsibilities to include consideration of stakeholder interests, and build collective voice through the power of the unifying B Corporation brand.
B Corporations are certified by B Lab, a non-profit organisation that serves a global movement to redefine success in business so that all companies compete not only to be the best in the world, but the best for the world. Innpact was assessed according to these rigorous standards of governance, treatment of employees, community outreach, target consumers, and environmental impact and ultimately exceeded even B Corp standards overall.
We sought the B Corporation certification as a result of our strong commitment to creating real social and environmental impact. We wanted to find a way to benchmark our performance and assess where we could improve as a company. We also wanted to signal to our partners and clients that our mission to foster sustainable impact finance initiatives is real and is well integrated into our multicultural team of 21 persons. Furthermore we would like to encourage our business partners to achieve the high standards of B Corporation companies as well. While we are thrilled to have obtained the certificate with an overall rating of 120, we are also keen to improve our performance across all the B Corporation metrics to increase our impact even further.
Innpact is proud to be the first B Corp in Luxembourg and we hope that this achievement will inspire other, like-minded businesses in Luxembourg to join the movement of using business for good. Officially certified on 11 November 2015 we are joining a community of over 1,400 like-minded B Corps from 42 countries in the world including over 200 from 20 countries in Europe including Triodos Bank, Big Society Capital and Pymwymic. B Lab Europe was founded in Amsterdam in 2013 with a mission to encourage the use of business as a force for good in Europe.
