“We have always tried to model best practices and be a best partner in all of our dealings. As we continue to grow economically, we can also now through B Lab measure our improvement in environmental and social practices. The bigger we get, the more good we can do, the more opportunities for our employees and the more visibility for our model. We hope to inspire businesses to compete not only to the best in the world, but to be the best for the world.”
– DEB HATCHER, Founding Partner, Chief Marketing Officer
