UpSpring joins 140 companies from 20 countries that were recognized as “One of the Best for the World.” The Philadelphia based B Corporation, creates this list each year to honor entities in the top 10% of nearly 2000 Certified B Corporations from 130 industries.

Managing partner, Drew Tulchin said, “We’re honored to be among the top 10% in the world. It shows our dedication to leveraging the power of the marketplace for good. Increasingly, organizations are seeking to track and report their impact for good. This type of business practice may be unusual in 2016, but soon it will be regular practice. Today’s honorees inspire all companies to compete not only to be best in the world, but best for the world.”
The designation is based on the B Impact Assessment score, a rigorous and comprehensive assessment of a company’s impact on its workers, community, and the environment. “Take the first step by using the ‘B Impact Assessment’ to measure and manage your company’s impact with as much rigor as your profit,” said Jay Coen Gilbert, Co-Founder of B Lab, the nonprofit organization that certifies B Corporations and governs the independent third party standard used to generate the comparable assessment of corporate impact.
As a Certified B Corporation, UpSpring uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems and meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. UpSpring’s businesses’ engagements have led to clients raising more than $100 million for mission driven causes. Our consultants have worked with entrepreneurs and non-profit managers throughout the US and more than 40 countries around the world as well as with Native American Tribes. Our work bring metrics and measurement-based management practice to document our clients’ impact.
B Lab simultaneously released separate lists recognizing the companies ‘Best for the Environment’ (environmental impact), ‘Best for Community’ (community impact), and ‘Best for Workers’ (employee impact).
“Today’s honorees inspire all companies to compete not only to be best in the world, but best for the world. We hope many will take the first step by using the B Impact Assessment to measure and manage their impact with as much rigor as their profit,” said Jay Coen Gilbert, Co-Founder of B Lab, the nonprofit organization that certifies B Corporations and governs the independent third party standard used to generate the comparable assessment of corporate impact.
