B Corp, what's that?
We are excited to be New Zealand's first B Corp accredited company. We sought to become a Certified B Corporation in 2012, as we believe our values will find resonance in the B Corp message.
What is a B Corp?
B Corps are a new type of company that uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. B Corp certification is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk.
Eagle Consumables was certified by the non-profit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. We’ve evaluated how our practices impact our employees, our community, the environment, and our customers.
Today, there are over 1,000 Certified B Corps around the globe, including Ben & Jerry's, UTOPIES and TOM Organic. We are proud to join them in redefining success in business, so that one day everyone uses business as a force for good. To learn more about our certification, check out our B Corp profile. We hope that, as ambassadors of the B Corp message, we can provide an example of how all New Zealand businesses should aspire and, moreover, physically act to ensure our corner of the world remains a special place to live and do business.
Why should you care?
B Corp certification provides accountability and drives us to evaluate and to improve our company and therefore our goods and service to you. We care about our staff, our customers and our local and international community and it is a wonderful opportunity to use our business as a force for good! B Corp certification gives you independent proof that we are doing what we say!
