Honorees are B Corps that are recognised for having the highest environmental, community, customer, worker and overall impact by earning a score in the top 10% on the B Impact Assessment.

Though it’s not a commonly discussed term, corporate governance impacts everyone. When companies incorporate their mission into the DNA of their company structure, they protect their long-term vision and fully commit to using business as a force for good. The 2019 Best For The World: Governance honorees walk the walk every day through exemplary governance practices, scoring in the top 10% of all B Corps across the globe.

This category embodies what it means to use business as a force for good. Honorees are evaluated on the company’s overall mission, ethics, accountability and transparency, whether the company has adopted a social or environmental mission, and how it engages its employees, board members and the community to achieve that mission. The Governance portion also assesses employee access to financial information, customers’ opportunities to provide feedback, and the diversity of the company’s governing bodies. By building their vision and values into their company bylaws, they ensure that their mission will live on with transparency and accountability.

This year 1052 companies globally were recognised with 89 of them from Australia and New Zealand.

Certified B Corporations are at the forefront of embedding impact and purpose within their business.
