Best for the World 2017: Carbon Analytics
CD: What does being on the Best for the World list mean for your company?
It's an honor to be recognized by a movement we hold in such high esteem! Good business is essential to the future of a Good planet, we're thrilled to continue to support the B Corp movement.
CD: What practices has your company implemented that has helped you become Best for the World?
We used the B Impact Assessment as a chance to review all aspects of our business and, as we were in a formative stage when we did so, build our business from the ground up with best practices on inclusive, fair, responsible and transparent policies for all our stakeholders.
CD: In what ways does the company include and consider your stakeholders in achieving your mission and having a positive impact? How has it contributed to the company fulfilling its mission?
Our mission is to the environment primarily and to our stakeholders secondarily. We include consideration of this mission in all we do - if we're not helping our customers reduce their environmental impact while helping our employees, customers, suppliers and community grow, we're not fulfilling our reason for being.
CD: What has your company learned about its operations and areas for improvement by certifying through the B Impact Assessment?
We have strived from the offset to have a diverse leadership team, but this process showed us how far we still have to go by including investors as well as the leadership team.
CD: Does the company actively seek improvement in its B Impact Assessment score? If yes, what goals do you have for continued improvement?
Always - in the coming years we hope to particularly bolster our measured impact as we help more and more companies assess, manage and reduce their environmental impact.
CD: Is your company targeting Best for the World lists it isn't already on? If so, which ones and how does it hope to achieve that target?
Best for Environment! As we ramp our user base and increase data on how we're able to widen the number of companies managing and reducing their carbon footprint, we hope we'll be able to earn this honor.
CD: Congratulations again Carbon Analytics on being a Best for the Long Term Honoree!
