Notice about B Corporation certification

“Certified B Corporation” is a trademark licensed by B Lab, a private non-profit organization, to companies like ours that have successfully completed the B Impact Assessment (“BIA”) and therefore meet the requirements set by B Lab for social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.

It is specified that B Lab is not a conformity assessment body as defined by Regulation (EU) No 765/2008, nor is it a national, European, or international standardization body as per Regulation (EU) No 1025/2012.

The criteria of the BIA are distinct and independent from the harmonized standards resulting from ISO norms or other standardization bodies, and they are not ratified by national or European public institutions.

Acetum has obtained the B Corp certification and have thus joined an international movement of companies that are rethinking the way they do business by committing themselves to respecting high standards of social, environmental and transparency responsibility.

B-Corporations are for-profit companies that have been certified by the not-for-profit B LabTM as meeting rigorous standards for supporting the wellbeing of all people in their workforce, engaging with their local community, and addressing ethical and environmental challenges in their supply chains.  Certified B-Corps businesses incorporate the requirement to address these issues at the heart of their organisation to engage all employees in the process, while ensuring transparency and accountability.
