June 12, 2018 – San Francisco, California
Today, Macroclimate® was recognized for creating extraordinary positive impact as a business based on an independent, comprehensive assessment administered by the nonprofit B Lab. Honorees are featured on B the Change, the digital Medium publication produced by B Lab.
Macroclimate® is honored in the Best For The World Overall list, which includes businesses that earned scores in the top 10 percent of more than 2,400 Certified B Corporations across all categories on the B Impact Assessment. The assessment measures a company's positive impact on its workers, community, customers and the environment.
To certify as B Corporations, companies like Macroclimate® must complete the full assessment and have their answers verified by B Lab. The full B Impact Assessment evaluates a company’s environmental performance, employee relationships, diversity, involvement in the local community, the impact a company’s product or service has on those it serves, and more.
Honorees scoring in the top 10 percent of all B Corporations set a gold standard for companies using business as a force for good. Macroclimate® made the list thanks to exceptional practices like its "fossil free" impact investment service and civic engagement in environmental research and climate action. The 226 Best For The World Overall honoree companies come from 92 different industries and 30 countries.
“With the rise of anger at a system that feels rigged, people are hungry for companies like Macroclimate®, who are changing the system by building businesses that seek to create the greatest positive impact,” says Jay Coen Gilbert, co-founder of B Lab. “Best For The World is the only list of businesses that uses comprehensive, comparable, third-party-validated data about a company’s social and environmental performance.”
