In everything we do we try to create benefit as we focus on a triple bottom line.
The Triple bottom line is simple: It puts people and planet at the same level of importance as profit. People + Planet + Profit = Sustainability
Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corps are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.
Society’s most challenging problems cannot be solved by government and nonprofits alone. The B Corp community works toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of more high quality jobs with dignity and purpose. By harnessing the power of business, B Corps use profits and growth as a means to a greater end: positive impact for their employees, communities, and the environment.
Why did we get certified? Although we were founded on principles of sustainability, the B Corp certification process allows us to capture what we’re doing in a more systematic approach and pushes us forward as we continue to improve our score. Being part of the respected B Corp community is also something we’re proud of as we all work toward building better businesses with a positive global impact.
In 2013, Eco Lips became a Certified B Corporation in order to further demonstrate our company’s commitment to social and environmental ethics, transparency, and accountability. Our B Corp certification places us in a community of over 2,788 companies in 150 industries, and 64 countries that are striving to be not just the best in the world, but the best for the world.
"We founded Eco Lips under the philosophy that we would always embrace a triple bottom line: People, Planet & Profit. The B Corp certification assessment provides our employees with a framework we couldn’t have created ourselves. We are now able to set clear goals and view our progress in a very unbiased way. Every time we increase our B Corp rating, we know we are doing better for our employees, our community, and the greater world.” Steve Shriver CEO at Eco Lips
