We’re thrilled to announce that Simpson Healthcare has been certified as a B Corporation – a coveted honor we’ve worked long and hard to earn. There are just over 4,000 B Corps around the world, sized small to large, in every kind of industry. But as different as we all are, we share the same vision of a healthier, cleaner, fairer world, and are dedicated to using our impact on our communities, customers and team members to spread that message. B Corp is a community of visionary leaders, driving a global movement of people using business as a force for good, and we’re honored to have made the cut.
What does it take to be certified as a B Corp? According to their website…
“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.”
It’s humbling to be in the company of Patagonia, Tillamook, Eileen Fisher, and the others who are leading the shift to more mindful business practices in support of the greater good.
