Earlier this month Yerdle renewed its credentials as a Certified B Corporation. B Corps are a new type of company that use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. B Corp certification is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk.
Yerdle has maintained its certification by the non-profit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. We’ve evaluated how our practices impact our employees, our community, and the environment.
Today, there are over 1,800 Certified B Corps around the globe, including Patagonia, Ben & Jerry's, and Seventh Generation. We are proud to join them in redefining success in business, so that one day everyone uses business as a force for good.
