Worldcoo, a B Corp company, has been named Best for the World 2022™ for the sixth consecutive year in recognition of its exceptional positive impact in the Customer area. Best for the World is a distinction awarded by B Lab to B Corps that are part of the 5% of B Corps with the highest verified score in any of the five impact areas measured in the B Impact Assessment (community, customers, environment, government and workers).

Worldcoo technology enables e-commerce and corporations with local or global reach to engage an increasingly conscious consumer to achieve significant social impact day after day. Worldcoo obtained this honor, thanks to initiatives such as the launch of Charity Rounding Up or other social fundraising channels, which have the objective of helping social and environmental entities to promote their projects throughout the world.

Today, there are more than 5,000 B Corps in 80 countries and 155 industries, united by a common goal: to build an inclusive, equitable and regenerative economic system.

Worldcoo’s Anual Report 2021

A journey through our last year

Here you have our Anual Report 2021, a year in which we have doubled the number of donations made compared to the previous year. The sum of all these small micro-donations made in different shops has raised more than 4 million euros, which will help fund 116 different social and environmental projects around the world.

We are very happy to have been able to offer help to various social causes that have needed it this year, marked by the consequences of the Covid pandemic. And also to have been able to offer immediate help to people affected by other climate emergencies that have occurred in recent months, such as the eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcano on the island of La Palma, or the floods that took place in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany.

This 2021 has also been very special because we have made the leap to Andorra, with the help of Univers Bomosa. And we have presented the first fundraising campaign in the Principality with the help of one of the leading telecommunications companies in the count.

We explain you everything in OUR ANUAL REPORT.
