We are thrilled to announce that Realize Strategies has been named a 2022 Best for the World™ B Corp in recognition of our exceptional positive impact in two categories: Governance and Workers!
Best for the World is a distinction granted by B Lab to Certified B Corporations (B Corps) whose verified B Impact Scores in the five impact areas evaluated in the B Impact Assessment — community, customers, environment, governance, and workers — rank in the top global 5% of all B Corps in their corresponding size group. This is an amazing honour and we are proud to once again be on the B Corp Best for the World™ honoree list for the sixth year in a row.
Here at Realize, we take great pride in being part of the B Corp community. We are big believers in the power of business as a force for good and strive to be a living example that balancing purpose and profit is a part of your organization’s success, not a detractor. To become a B Corp, businesses must undergo a rigorous certification process by B Lab to determine if they “meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose.”
For 2022, we have made the global list again in the Workers, and Governance categories. The Workers category recognizes the top B Corps who prioritize their workforce through employee-focused efforts, such as inclusive hiring practices and employee ownership.The Governance category highlights the top-ranking B Corps who focus on transparency and accountability, and build vision, mission, and values into their company’s bylaws. Check out our B Impact Report and Score to learn more about our work.
Going forward, we will continue our efforts to improve Realize’s Impact Score through the B Impact Assessment as we seek new ways to live out our values and to bring greater accountability and transparency to our operations. We are passionate about amplifying the B Corp movement, so if you have any questions about B Corporations, the certification process, or about balancing profit and purpose, let us know – we’d absolutely love to have a chat with you about our experiences!
