I’m proud to share that SecondMuse’s B Corp certification, which we first earned in 2016, has been renewed. This certification, administered by the non-profit B Lab, challenges companies to meet rigorous environmental and social standards and to build stakeholder accountability into their business structures.
Since SecondMuse’s founding, we have prioritized many of the B Corp principles: reducing inequality by providing entrepreneurial support to underserved communities, legal accountability to balance profit and purpose, a commitment to our people and the planet, and a driving belief that businesses can and should be a force for good.
The renewal process â” an extensive undertaking involving record sharing and responding to a series of tough questions â” holds us to these standards. We learn and grow from the process every time.
Beyond accountability, our decision to recertify affirms our commitment to a community of like-minded businesses. It allows us to join forces with more than 3,500 B Corp businesses in over 70 countries dedicated to reducing inequality, building stronger communities, helping the environment, and creating more high-quality jobs with dignity and purpose. At SecondMuse, community is part of our DNA because we understand that collaboration and partnerships are essential for solving the world’s most complex problems.
We feel privileged to be part of the global B Corp community, redefining business success. We are a better organization because of it.
