You guys! We’re so excited! Yumbutter’s on the Best for Community list!
Yumbutter has been recognized by B the Change Media for creating the most positive overall community impact based on an independent, comprehensive assessment measuring a company’s impact on its workers, community, customers, and the environment. We’re honored in the Best for Community list, which includes businesses that earned a Community score in the top 10 percent of more than 1,800 Certified B Corporations on the B Impact Assessment, administered by nonprofit B Lab. “Yumbutter was created to prove that business can be used to build a better world, and being a part of the Best for the World 2016 is huge validation that we are on the right track,” says co-founder Matt D’Amour.
The Community portion of the B Impact Assessment evaluates a company’s supplier relations, diversity, and involvement in the local community. It also measures the company’s practices and policies around community service and charitable giving, including whether a company’s product or service is designed to solve a social issue, such as access to basic services, health, education, or economic opportunity.
Using Business As A Force For Good
“Our primary goal is to be boldly compassionate in every area of our business – from our BuyOne|FeedOne Mission, to the way we select and source healthy, sustainable ingredients, to the way we interact with customers and employees,” says D’Amour. “As we grow, we will continue to improve and expand upon our mission to nourish the world, providing an example to others that business is better when it’s done with compassion.”
B the Change Media simultaneously released separate lists recognizing B Corporations as Best for the World (overall impact), Best for the Environment, Best for Customers and Best for Workers, which can be found here. Honorees are featured in the upcoming fall issue of B Magazine and on B the Change’s digital platform, bthechange.com.
