In the top 10% of certified B Corporations worldwide for governance
3Degrees was recently honored for our accomplishments by B Lab, the nonprofit organization that certifies B Corporations. Specifically, we were recognized in the “Best for the World: Long Term” category as a result of our mission driven, transparent governance.
The 2017 Best for the World for the Long Term evaluates companies on their adoption of a social or environmental mission, and how they engages employees, board members and the community to achieve that mission. Moreover, it assesses employee access to financial information, customers’ opportunities to provide feedback, and the diversity of the company’s governing bodies.
“Receiving this award from B Lab is testimony to one of our company values – that we are passionate about our mission…really,” said Steve McDougal, CEO of 3Degrees. “It’s a great tribute to the work that our employees do every day to make sure that we live the values of the B Corp movement.”
Only the top 10 percent of Certified B Corporations received awards. 2017 Best for the Long Term companies winners represent 79 different industries and 13 countries.
This is the third time that 3Degrees has received a Best for the World award. In 2016, we won in the Best for the Environment category, and in 2013, we won in the Best for the Worker category.
3Degrees has been a certified B Corp since 2012 and continually strives to improve our performance across all metrics, including social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.
