The NGO B Corp was founded in 2006. There are over 4,000 certified B Corporations in more than 77 countries today. Some of these are Toms, Too Good To Go and Patagonia. All of them are united by the same goal to reconcile profit maximization with a social mission on their journey towards a responsible, environmentally sustainable and socially fair future for business. They aim at meeting the highest standards of social and environmental performance, public transparency and accountability in order to balance profit with purpose. They operate at the top of their class, excel in creating a positive impact for their stakeholders, including their workers, communities, customers and the environment.
The B Corp certification is based on a company's verified performance in the categories of corporate governance, employees and impact on the environment, customers and society. Every year, participating companies have to answer 200 questions on these categories, and the B Impact Assessment becomes more demanding every year. Sympatex has received the award for the second time. It was already recognized as part of the B Corp list of the best companies in 2019.
