Discovered is a B Corp
Rotterdam, 2 December 2014 – Since August 2014, Discovered belongs to the first B Corporations certified companies in the Netherlands. B Corporations are organizations that use their strengths to take on social and environmental challenges. This mindset is their business model. Their goals don’t just revolve around being the best in the world, but are about being the best for the world.
B Corp is for companies what Fair trade is for coffee
Currently, there are over 900 certified B Corporations active in more than 60 industries and spread over 32 countries. They have a common goal: give a new definition to what it means to be a successful business. Together, they focus on solving the new challenges modern societies are facing. However, getting the certification isn’t an end in itself. Rather, it represents the acknowledgement of a new mindset of doing business: be the best for the world while keeping in mind your impact on society and the environment.
“The B-Corp model is a good way to, together, create positive impact for all the discoverers around the world.” Gijsbert van der Sleen.
More companies are joining the movement
As an introduction, and in collaboration with Beebox, Dopper, Dutch, Moyee Coffee, Mud Jeans and Tony’s Chocolonely, Discovered put together a B Corp Christmas Box with responsible gifts to the attention of Dutch media. The message was clear. By working together and doing responsible business, companies have the power to make the world a better place.
