Along with companies like Patagonia, Digitopia was honored for its positive impact on its workers, the environment, and the community at large.
December 31, 2018 Carlsbad, Calif. -- Digitopia was honored on the Best for the World list, which recognizes businesses for creating extraordinary, positive impact within their community. This annual list is selected based on an independent, comprehensive assessment administered by the nonprofit, B Lab, and is featured in B the Change, a digital publication the nonprofit produces.
Digitopia (formerly Organik SEO) was specifically named on the Best For The World Overall list, which includes businesses that earned scores in the top 10 percent of more than 2,400 Certified B Corporations across all categories on the B Impact Assessment. The assessment measures a company's positive impact on its workers, community, customers and environment.
The 226 Best For The World Overall honoree companies came from 92 different industries and 30 countries. Companies like Patagonia, King Arthur Flour Company, Green Mountain Power, and the United Kingdom’s Charity Bank were also honored.
“We are extremely excited and humbled to be among this list of like-minded companies,” said Julien Brandt, president and co-founder of Digitopia. “Becoming a B Corp was the easiest decision we’ve ever made. At Digitopia, we believe it’s about doing the right thing, not the easy thing. And when run your business that way, we find the rest always falls in to place.”
The full B Impact Assessment evaluates a company’s environmental performance, employee relationships, diversity, involvement in the local community, the impact a company’s product or service has on those it serves, and more. Honorees scoring in the top 10 percent of all B Corporations set a gold standard for companies using business as a force for good. Digitopia made the list thanks to its business philosophy, which places equal emphasis on the triple bottom line: people, planet and profit.
Today there are more than 2,400 Certified B Corporations across more than 150 industries and 50 countries, unified by one common goal: to redefine success in business. Any company can measure and manage social and environmental performance at http://bimpactassessment.net.
