Philadelphia, PA (June 19, 2018)—Geneva Global has been named as one of B Lab’s Best For The World honorees, an annual list of companies that are using the power of business as a force for good. Geneva Global was recognized in the Best for Customers category for its dedication to creating the most positive overall impact on its clients as evaluated based on an independent, comprehensive assessment administered by the nonprofit B Lab.
To earn the recognition, Geneva Global achieved a Customer score in the top 10 percent of more than 2,400 Certified B Corporations on the B Impact Assessment. The full assessment measures a company’s impact on its workers, community, customers, and environment.
The customer portion of the B Impact Assessment measures the impact a company has on its customers by focusing on whether a company sells products or services that promote public benefit and if those services are targeted toward serving underserved populations. The section also measures whether a company’s product or service is designed to solve a social or environmental issue. Due to its mission to help clients in their social change initiatives, Geneva Global was well suited to excel in this category.
“We are thrilled to be included in B Lab’s 2018 Best For The World list,” said David Dahlin, CEO of Geneva Global. “As philanthropic consultants, it is part of our DNA to help our clients achieve the full potential of their philanthropy. Businesses can play an important role in bringing about transformative, systemic change, and we are proud to be a part of the movement that’s demonstrating there’s a better way to do business.”
“With the rise of anger at a system that feels rigged, people are hungry for companies like Geneva Global, who are changing the system by building businesses that seek to create the greatest positive impact,” says Jay Coen Gilbert, co-founder of B Lab. “Best For The World is the only list of businesses that uses comprehensive, comparable, third-party-validated data about a company’s social and environmental performance. As consumers, talent and investors increasingly demand transparent, values-aligned businesses to buy from, work at and invest in, companies will need to not just the best in the world but the best for the world, and not just to be nice but to be the most successful.”
Close to 1,000 Certified B Corporations were named 2018 Best for the World Honorees, including Patagonia, King Arthur Flour Company, Green Mountain Power, and the United Kingdom’s Charity Bank. Fifty-two countries are represented, including Denmark, India, South Africa, and Taiwan. The selection criteria for Best For The World honorees are available here.
