What is ‘Best for the World’ recognition by B Lab? 

Every year, B Lab recognizes the top-performing certified B Corporations creating great impact through their businesses. Once their verified scores in the five impact areas evaluated on the B Impact Assessment – community, customers, environment, governance, and workers – are amongst the global top 5% in their corresponding size group, these B Corps are named Best for the World.

Why is the B Lab ‘Best for the World’ recognition important?

The “Best for the World” recognition is important in the sense that chosen B Corps in the five different categories prove that the competing organisations are not only the best in the world, but more importantly the best for the world. Their actions inspire more businesses to join the movement that is transforming the global economy to benefit all people, communities, and the planet.

To achieve B Corp certification, a company must meet these rigorous criteria:

  • Demonstrate high social and environmental performance by achieving a B Impact Assessment score of 80 or above and passing our risk review
  • Make a legal commitment by changing their corporate governance structure to be accountable to all stakeholders, not just shareholders, and achieve benefit corporation status if available in their jurisdiction.
  • Exhibit transparency by allowing information about their performance measured against B Lab’s standards to be publicly available on their B Corp profile on B Lab’s website. 

“We have always kept climate-conscious innovation at the core of our company. In our technological offerings or in our business models, we have institutionalized certain measures where we always assess our performance in terms of contributions made to the climate or environment. This approach has truly helped SmartHelio to be among the global front-runners in climate and environmental sustainability,” Neeraj Kumar Dasila, Co-Founder & Chief Technology Officer, SmartHelio.
