Every year, B Lab names socially conscious businesses from all over to its Best for the Worldlist.
The Wayne-based nonprofit that certifies companies as B Corps just announced its 2017 honorees, and Philadelphia companies take up a whopping 16 spots.
B Lab’s methodology for choosing the Best for the World, from its 2016 announcement:
“We highlight the businesses that B Lab has determined have scored in the top 10 percent of all Certified B Corporations on the assessment. Companies that have scored in the top percentiles across a majority of the assessment’s categories, based on company size, are honored as Best for the World Overall, and companies that have scored in the top percentiles in a given category, again based on company size, are honored as Best for the Environment, Best for Community, Best for Workers and Best for Customers.”
