When Here I Am’s Founders, Laura and Vi, first decided to launch a company together and embark on the Here I Am journey, they scribbled down a list of founding priorities – and kickstarting the B Corp process was among them.
B Corp certification showcases a genuine dedication to infusing purpose and responsibility into an organisation's operations, and a commitment to upholding the highest standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.
Today, we're brimming with a sense of accomplishment as we share our attainment of B Corp certification. This achievement is a meaningful milestone on our ongoing path to making a positive impact on society and the environment, aligning us with a global community of businesses striving to do good.
“Attaining B Corp certification is a reflection of our sincere desire to contribute positively to our society and planet," remarked Laura Scanlon, Co-founder and CEO. As a B Corp, our values find practical expression in our actions. This is the beginning of our journey, and we are committed to further improving our B Corp impact score each year.”
Despite founding Here I Am to align with B Corp standards from day one, gaining the Certification has been a huge effort. Thank you to everyone involved in making this happen!
