thinkstep Australasia achieved B Corp certification

thinkstep Australasia achieved formal B Corp certification as a ‘for-profit’ corporation committed to positive social and environmental goals in June 2018.

“The moment we learned of a coordinated global movement using business as a force for good, we knew thinkstep Australasia had to join, said Barbara Nebel, Managing Director of thinkstep Australasia. “What appealed to us was that B Corp isn’t just a certification of what we’re doing; but how we’re doing our work.”

This certification adds a level of trust and value. It also demonstrates that we are walking the talk on some of the exact same things that the thinkstep team helps our partners and clients to achieve.

Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corps are working to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy. The community consists of over 2,700 companies worldwide who share best practices and work towards a higher purpose.

 “As B Corps, we’re all assessed by completing the B Impact Assessment every three years, cementing our ongoing commitment to meet higher standards of transparency, accountability and performance. Our B Corp score is in the public domain and can be seen by anyone at any time,” says Barbara Nebel.
