THE SHIFT JOINS B CORP™ COMMUNITY; PLEDGES TO USE BUSINESS AS A FORCE FOR GOOD.
The Shift Corp’s strategic decision to elevate people and planet to the same level as profit has been recognised. The team is excited to announce The Shift is now a Certified B Corporation™ (B Corp™).
B Corp is a global community of for-profit leaders pledging to use business as a force for good.
The Shift joins more than 3,300 B Corp™ businesses, operating in 150 industries, across 71 countries who have undertaken a rigorous assessment process to become Certified B Corporations™. The assessment measures a businesses ongoing impact on its workers, community and suppliers, customers, governance and the environment. The Shift CEO Hailey Mason commented: “Shifting Mindsets for Positive Change is the reason The Shift exists. It shapes who we are, what we stand for and what we do. The Shift’s mission is to be a catalyst for change in our industry and becoming a B Corp™ commits us to balancing people, planet and profit.”
“Today’s brands and consumers have rapidly shifting expectations on how we should care for our people and planet, and we have responded by ensuring our business, developing event marketing campaigns and projects for brands and not-for-profits, is fit for a better world. Being a Certified B Corp™creates a new benchmark for our company, our customers and our community.”
The process took more than a year and The Shift’s accreditation will be reviewed every 3 years. The Shift will use the assessment as a stimulus to continue to make positive change within the company.
The B Corp™ Certification is administered by B Lab. Australia and New Zealand B Lab CEO Andrew Davies was recently a panellist on The Shift PanelCast Episode 9, Leading Social Change.
