Beyond Governance, a Certified B Corp, has been named a Best for the World™ B Corp in recognition of its exemplary performance beyond commercial metrics.

Hertfordshire, UK 12 July 2021 – Beyond Governance, a Certified B Corp, has been named a Best for the World™ B Corp in recognition of its exemplary performance beyond commercial metrics. Ranking in the top 5% of all B Corps in its size group worldwide for their sustainable business practices. Beyond Governance earned this honour because of its strong ethics, accountability and transparency, robust board and internal governance, strong stakeholder engagement, social/environmental targets and financial transparency with employees.

“Governance is often an area of business that is overlooked but done well it supports a strong organisation that is fit for the future. At its core it is good decision making; the right people talking about the right things at the right time. Whilst we provide this advice and guidance to our clients through our consultancy and training course, we practise what we preach and are proud to be recognised for our work in this field by B Lab” said Erika Percival, CEO of Beyond Governance.

The Best for the World recognition is administered by B Lab, the global non-profit network that certifies and mobilizes Certified B Corporations, which are for-profit companies that meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. Today there are more than 4,000 Certified B Corporations across 77 countries and 153 industries, unified by one common goal: transforming the global economy to benefit all people, communities, and the planet.

 

B Corps meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. The B Corp Certification doesn’t just evaluate a product or service, it assesses the overall positive impact of the company that stands behind it—like Beyond Governance. B Lab evaluates how a company’s operations and business model impact its workers, community, environment, and customers.

“Best for the World is a special program for the B Corp community, and we’re thrilled to resume it after pausing the program in 2020 due to COVID-19,” said Juan Pablo Larenas, Executive Director of B Lab Global.

“This year’s Best for the World companies are operating at the very top of their class, excelling in creating positive impact for their stakeholders, including their workers, communities, customers and the environment. We’re proud of the community of stakeholder-driven businesses we’ve cultivated over the last 15 years; together we’re marching toward our collective vision of an inclusive, equitable and regenerative economic system for all people and the planet.”

The 2021 Best for the World lists, including 4G Capital, KeepCup, Natura, The Big Issue Group, TOMS, Too Good To Go, and Patagonia. The 2021 Best for the World lists are determined based on the verified B Impact Assessments of Certified B Corporations. The full lists are available on bcorporation.net.
