Sarona honoured as ‘Best for the World’ for exceptional positive social and environmental impact

Sarona was recognized by B Lab as Best for the World for the third year in a row! In 2012, the inaugural list was sourced from approximately 500 B Corps. This year, Sarona has again been recognised in the Overall Best for the World category by scoring in the top 10th percentile of more than 2,000 Certified B Corporations. The B Impact Assessment evaluates environmental performance, employee relationships, diversity, involvement in the local community, the impact a company’s product or service has on those it serves, and more.

We were also recognized as Best for the World in the following categories:

  • Best for Workers
  • Best for Customers
  • Best for the Long Term (corresponding to the Governance impact area)

Sarona’s tagline is “Growth that Matters” and this distinction from B Lab reinforces our belief that sound investments supported by strong Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices can make a significant difference in local communities.

B Lab is an independent non-profit organization founded to create and support a global community of Certified B Corporations that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency and legal accountability.
