Worldcoo has been awarded as a Best Company For the World

It’s the fifht time that Worldcoo receives this award for performance excellence beyond just profit

Worldcoo - Best for the world 2021

Worldcoo has been named a Best for the World™ B Corp in recognition of its exemplary performance beyond commercial metrics. Ranking in the top 5% of all B Corps in its size group worldwide for their sustainable business practices, Worldcoo] earned this honor because of initiatives such as the launchment of the Charity Rounding Up and its other fundraising channels. 

The Best for the World recognition is administered by B Lab, the global nonprofit network that certifies and mobilizes Certified B Corporations, which are for-profit companies that meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. Today there are more than 4,000 Certified B Corporations across 77 countries and 153 industries, unified by one common goal: transforming the global economy to benefit all people, communities, and the planet. 

B Corps meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. The B Corp Certification doesn’t just evaluate a product or service, it assesses the overall positive impact of the company that stands behind it—like Worldcoo. Using the B Impact Assessment, B Lab evaluates how a company’s operations and business model impact its workers, community, environment, and customers. To achieve the B Corp Certification, a company must achieve a score of at least 80 points on the assessment.

630,000 charity donations against COVID-19

Since the beginning of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, more than 630,000 charity donations have been made to fight against COVID-19 through the different fundraising channels that Worldcoo offers. It is the case of the Charity Rounding Up, a donation mechanism available for retailers, which enables the option to round up the total amount of the purchase and donate the cents to a social cause, or the Charity Donation Platforms, available for companies who facilitate their customers and partners an online space where they can make a donation. Today, the total amount raised is more than €254,000.

For example, Bonpreu i Esclat Supermarket, Correos or bonÀrea Supermarket customers can round up the final amount of their purchase and donate the remaining cents to IRSI Caixa (in the first two cases) or to the “Germans Trias i Pujol Research Institute“. In both cases, the objective is to facilitate the appearance of new treatments that help combat the pandemic.

Some online sales companies, such as Ticketmaster, PromoFarma, PcComponentes, Planeta Huerto or Sprinter, also offer their clients the option of adding a micro-donation to their purchase and collaborate with the Red Cross with the aim of to be able to help the most vulnerable people. So has Nicequest, which in its case supports ISGlobal.

Other companies, such as Banco Sabadell, Glovo and Iberdrola have habilitated their own platforms through Worldcoo so that employees and partners can make a donation to organizations like Save the Children, UNICEF, Aldeas Infantiles SOS and Red Cross.

We’ve been chosen as a #bestfortheworld16 honoree!

capturaAs you know, we are part of B Corporation since more than a year ago; a global movement that brings together 1.800 companies that are redefining the sense of success in business. This is, companies that combine economic profits and the creation of social and environmental goods.

So, the organisation that leads this movement, has presented the III Annual Ranking of “Best Companies for the World 2016” in Berkeley (California, United States), and we are in this list!!

This recognition comes from the good results that we have showed in an independent and comprehensive assessment administered by the independent nonprofit B Lab, the organisation that leads this movement.

The full assessment measures a company’s impact on its workers, community, customers and environment.

Worldcoo has been honoured for the impact that it has on its customers, for promoting a public benefit and for helping to solve a social or environmental issue (improving health, preserving environment, creating economic opportunity to individuals or communities, promoting the arts/sciences, or increasing the flow of capital to purpose-driven enterprises.)

“The companies we are honoring as the best for the world represent the cutting edge of a global movement using business as a force for good. We are inspired by them, and feel deeply honored to join them in this historic and ground-breaking celebration,” said Bryan Welch, CEO of B the Change Media, the multiplatform media company that host of the Best for the World event at the University of California.

Being a part of the Best for the World list for 2016 is a very special recognition for us. It represents that we are doing things well. It inspires us to lead by the example and create more social impact for a better world.

We clearly believe that there’s a better way to do business and this acknowledgement motivate us to make that more companies do the same.

Worldcoo Team.
