Maud Borup is proud to announce recognition as a Certified B Corporation™ (B Corp™), joining an exclusive group of about 5,000 companies worldwide holding such a distinction.
This notable honor is awarded to companies that complete a comprehensive assessment of their impact on all stakeholders and pass verification audits that examine how the company meets governance, environment, workers, customers, and community requirements.
B Corporations are part of a global movement to initiate change in the way companies operate. Certification recognizes businesses that balance people and purpose with profits.
“Maud Borup has always been a company with a conscience. Being certified as a B Corp reaffirms our commitment to meeting the highest social and environmental standards with the utmost transparency and accountability,” said Christine Lantinen, president of Maud Borup.
Maud Borup met the rigorous standards defined by B Corp, with only 22 companies in Minnesota achieving accreditation.
Lantinen adds, “Our business practices are built to respect the earth and celebrate diversity as we continue to build a more inclusive environment.”
The company joins other certified B Corp companies like Patagonia, Toms, and Ben & Jerry’s, all working toward one unifying goal – make business a force for good.
