Sets Gold Standard and Challenges Businesses to Measure and Manage Impact

[Editor’s Note: Sustrana is proud to be listed among some of the globe’s most impactful organizations.  In fact, the following is our press release about being included by B Lab on two of its most recent “Best for” lists.]

 

April 14, 2015 -- Sustrana, a leading sustainability management and technology company, was recognized today for creating positive environmental and employee impacts by the nonprofit B Lab in its fourth annual ‘B Corp Best for’ lists.

Sustrana was recognized by B Lab for earning a score in each category that ranked in the top 10 percent of the more than 1,200 Certified B Corporations from over 120 industries assessed by the organization.  Honorees were recognized among micro, small, and mid-sized businesses around the globe.

Located in Devon, PA, Sustrana helps organizations of all sizes improve their business performance through on-demand and customizable sustainability programs delivered online.

“Sustrana provides a unique mix of expert guidance and technology-based tools that help organizations build custom sustainability programs in less time for less money,” said Jennifer Anderson, CEO and Co-Founder of Sustrana.

“We are proud to be honored among some the most impactful companies.  The recognized importance of sustainability management on the bottom-line is on the rise, and we look forward to helping others build lasting value, cut costs, and make a significant impact in their communities at the same time,” said Anderson.

Sustrana’s online Sustainability Strategy Navigator™ provides clients with direct, on-demand access to the tools, education, and guidance needed to build and manage a strategic sustainability program.

“Clients use the Sustrana platform to reduce costs, strengthen their brand, gain long-term value and marketplace traction, and better manage their supply chain,” said Anderson.

According to B Lab, the “Best for” B Corp lists set the gold standard for high impact companies and demonstrate that any type of company can use business as a force for good.

The Best for Environment and Workers lists are part of B Lab’s ‘Best for the World’ series. B Lab simultaneously released its separate lists recognizing the companies ‘Best for the World’ (overall impact), ‘Best for Community’ (community impact), ‘Best for Workers’ (employee impact) and ‘Best for the Environment’ (environmental impact).

Each honored company, including Sustrana, is a Certified B Corporation.

“Today's honorees inspire all companies to compete not only to be best in the world, but best for the world. We hope many will take the first step by using the B Impact Assessment to measure and manage their impact with as much rigor as their profit,” said Jay Coen Gilbert, Co-Founder of B Lab, the nonprofit organization that certifies B Corporations and governs the independent third party standard used to generate the comparable assessment of corporate impact.
