Cary, NC – B Lab has just released the first ‘Best for the World’ lists recognizing companies creating the most positive overall social and environmental impact. – JustNeem Body Care has been recognized as one of these ‘Best for the World’ companies creating the most overall positive social and environmental impact.
JustNeem Body Care earned a score in the top 10% of all Certified B Corporations with 10 employees or less, and a 50% higher than the average score of nearly 2,000 other sustainable businesses that have completed the B Impact Assessment.
What Is The B Impact Assessment?
All the certified B Corporations have been evaluated with the B Impact Assessment, a free sustainability management tool, to benchmark their success. Using those scores, B Lab has selected the Best of the Best–the companies that have the highest social and environmental impact out of all the corporations that meet B Lab’s standards for certification. JustNeem and the other recognized companies, which all scored in the top 10% on the B Impact Assessment, embody the triple bottom line (people, planet, profit).
“JustNeem is a leader in the global movement to redefine success in business,” said Jay Coen Gilbert, co founder of B Lab, the organization that certifies B Corps. “JustNeem is among the best in the world at being the best for the world.”
