We are so excited to announce that on October 18th, 2019 we officially earned our B Corp™️ Certification. We are deeply honored by the recognition and thrilled about joining this incredible and important community. B Corps are leaders of a global movement of people using business as a force for good. This means businesses that meet the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.
The B Corp assessment measures our performance in five categories:
- the environment
The certification methodically and thoroughly holds us accountable for credible, comprehensive, transparent, and independent standards of performance. As such, it is one of the only certifications that are not for a product or service, but for the whole business.
Opus’ higher purpose is to promote good through purposeful design, so we have always been committed to using our business as a force for good. Pursuing our B Corp certification helped us further strengthen and expand that commitment. And, by signing the B Corp Declaration of Interdependence, we are publicly proclaiming our dedication to creating benefits for all of our stakeholders – not just our shareholders. We are committing to be the change we seek in the world and to be responsible for each other and future generations.
Across the Globe
To date, there are more than 3,000 B Corps across 150 industries and 70 countries around the world. Among many others, some notable B Corps include Patagonia, King Arthur Flour, and Seventh Generation. As part of this community, we look forward to collectively demonstrating that businesses can do well and do good.
