Sienna x B Corp
What exactly is a B Corp, you ask? We think they probably say it best:
“Certified B Companies are a new kind of business that balances purpose and profit. They are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment. This is a community of leaders, driving a global movement of people using businesses as a force for good.”
All the sustainable and ethical things we have been doing since our very first bottles were poured in 2014 have now been documented, measured and verified. You can see how we went on our impact statement.
How do you become a certified B Corp?
It takes months to become certified as a B Corp. B Lab is the non-profit body that certifies products and services to make sure they meet the high standards required to become certified. B Lab looks at every aspect of your business to assess your positive impact. The combination of third-party validation, public transparency and legal accountability builds trust and helps caring consumers like you make ethical choices.
It’s not a dollar, it’s a ballot
You cast your vote every time you make a decision about what you buy and where you shop. You can vote for your values by choosing companies that put people and planet first. The B Corp directory has every business type under the sun, from activewear to restaurants, to hair salons, to designer dress rental. People and businesses are doing extraordinary things.
