Today we are proud to announce that Worldcoo is officially a Certified B Corporation. The B-Corp designation is similar to Fair Trade or LEED certification, but unique in that it considers the business as a whole. This includes an entity’s commitment to transparency and comprehensive performance standards. The B Corp certification validates the high sustainable business standards we hold for our products, practices and investments.We are proud to join a group of outstanding companies with the vision for change and shared value.
It is a great honor for us to be part of the diverse and socially-conscious community of over 900 Certified B Corps from more than 60 industries (including Patagonia, Etsy and Egg) in 32 countries with 1 unifying goal – to redefine success in business.
Co-founders Aureli and Sergi established an NGO in 2010 to carry out co-operation projects, they discovered countless efforts focused on development projects that would solve worldwide large-scale problems but only a handful focus on funding them in an efficient, elegant and sustainable way.
In 2012, the co-founders brought to life Worldcoo, a social enterprise, transforming its not-for-profit origins into a for-profit entity to bring great value to its stakeholders and shareholders. It was in that same year that a new fundraising channel for social projects was born. As of that date we provide streamlined, innovative technology to unite a sector that is growing around the world, e-commerce with meaningful and measurable social initiatives.
The Worldcoo brand at its core stands for innovation, transparency and social commitment. Naturally we sought the B Lab certification to uphold and protect our mission while taking an active role in this movement to create higher quality jobs and improve quality of life in our local and global communities. We believe that high standards and innovation are driving forces for the change.
Receiving a B Corp Certification confirms that we are not only socially conscious, but also committed to value-creation through transparent economic and environmental practices. In our everyday operations we measure out our company’s impact on all our stakeholders — investors, e-commerce, NGO, people, and consumers.
B Corporations are clearly a new kind of company characterized by using the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. B Corps are important because they inspire all business to compete not only to be the best in the world, but to be the best for the world.
“We are proud to be one of the B Corp Europe founding parnters and join a community of like-minded companies. With our first assessment we earned a score positioning us as a leader in Spain and in Europe, nonetheless we will constantly raise the bar to uphold Worldcoo as a company with a sustainable & social mission.” – Sergi Figueres, CEO
