Localize Honoured as a 2018 Best for the World B Corp
We have some exciting news to share! For the second year in a row, Localize has been honoured as a Best for the World B Corp. This puts Localize yet again in the midst of an elite group of mission-driven companies across the world recognized by the B Corp certification as ‘Best for the World Honorees’ for 2018.
We have been recognized in three categories, including:
2018 Best For The World: Overall Honoree, leaders in positive business impact overall.
2018 Best For The World: Community Honoree, creating most positive community impact.
2018 Best For The World: Governance Honoree, creating powerful governance structures to protect company mission.
This year’s recognition is particularly special to us because of our ‘Overall’ achievement. As an ‘Overall Best for the World’ B Corp, we’ve managed to demonstrate our positive impact across multiple categories of the B Impact Assessment. We continue to learn and build on our mission and vision for Localize.
Best for the World Honorees represent the top 10% of over 2500 B Corps across the world, all of whom are companies who are innovating to enhance our communities, improve and sustain our environment, show transparency and integrity in leadership, and craft better solutions for a better world.
B Corp Certification is an important milestone for us because we’ve had to do more than simply state our social mission, we’ve also had to prove the impact of our actions. Our local food labels have shown shoppers how they can support more local and transparent food through hundreds of millions of purchases, all of which have increased reinvestment and profits for local economies. In 2018, we’re expanding how we can use data to increase transparency across new industries.
As we continue to grow into new industries and dream big about how we can solve transparency issues, being recognized as a 2018 Best for the World Honoree is a validation that we’ve built a company and a mission that we can be proud of.
