About B Corporations
A certified B Corporation meets rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, legally expands its corporate responsibilities to include consideration of stakeholder interests, and builds collective voice through the power of the unifying B Corporation brand. As of June 2014, there are more than 1,000 Certified B Corporations from over 60 industries and 34 countries, representing a diverse multi-billion dollar marketplace.
Why are we a B Corp?
We’ve always been committed to working with clients that inspire positive change. Socially-conscious companies, nonprofits, foundations, institutions of higher learning have always been our base. We’re dedicated to giving back and making a difference. Becoming a Certified B Corporation validates that mission and helps us work with others with similar missions to empower business as a force for good.
We give our time, and we donate to the organizations we care about. Everyone at LimeRed is encouraged to volunteer and has an extra day off every month to do so. We participate in programs like EPIC, we teach free events, and we participate in our communities.
We vet our suppliers on the following criteria:
Mission – We prefer to work with companies whose mission aligns with ours
Competency – We’re committed to high-quality work.
Diversity – We actively gather a wide array of perspectives on gender, age, race and other criteria.
Location – We prefer to work locally and have an impact where we live.
