B Lab, the nonprofit that certifies B Corporations, has named New Resource Bank to its “Best for the World” list of businesses that are creating the most overall positive social and environmental impact.
Businesses on the “Best for the World” list earned scores on B Lab’s B Impact Assessment that were in the top 10 percent of all Certified B Corporations and were, on average, 50 percent higher than the average score of nearly 2,000 other businesses that have completed the assessment. The B Impact Assessment rates businesses on nearly 200 individual metrics addressing corporate impact on employees, consumers, suppliers, the community and the environment.
Everyone at New Resource is excited to be on the list and honored to be in such excellent company. (See the full list in the 2012 B Corp Anual Report) It’s great to get recognition for the work we do every day to maintain and improve our own sustainability, and to support businesses and nonprofits that are creating a more sustainable world.
