Appinio as a B corp
What is a B Corp certification?
Benefit Corporations (or B Corps) are companies that meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. Essentially, it's like a gold star for companies that truly care about people, the planet, and profits.
What does it mean for Appinio to be B Corp-Certified?
Our mission is to balance purpose and profit, and we've made significant strides towards that goal in the last two years. We've introduced new processes internally and externally and launched initiatives that will touch on everything from onboarding to impact measurement.
Why is Appinio a B Corp?
Our high scores in governance reflects our transparency, ethics, and consideration for stakeholders, and our DNA is built on the belief that great people need to be enabled to do great things. As such, we try to set the bar high, taking excellent care of our workers, with health benefits and flexible policies that allow everyone to perform at their best.
What is our mission as a B corp?
We believe that through being conscientious about the world around us ,we can help make the world a better place for everyone.
How does Appinio showcase its commitment?
In line with our adherence to the UN SDGs, we’ve released our inaugural Impact Report on Appinio’s social and environmental impact alongside growth figures for the past year. The report underscores our commitment to scaling sustainably and unifying fiscal, social, and environmental responsibility.
"As a B Corp, we are committed to constantly reviewing and transparently reporting on our social and environmental impact. We want to demonstrate that building a profitable, high-growth business only comes with a commitment to the people around us and our environment. We’re looking to set an example that we hope others will follow.”
