Late last week, Australian Ethical was recognized by B the Change Media as the company that has created the most positive community impact; improving the environment, the community, their customers, and their workers.
The recognition comes from an independent assessment from the nonprofit B Lab, who conducted surveys and studies of over 1,800 companies across the world.
Overall, Australian Ethical scored in the top ten percent of all businesses, in all assessed categories. They were also specifically honoured in the Best for Customer and Best for Worker categories.
Australian Ethical Managing Director Phil Vernon said “We take our obligation to the people and the planet seriously, and we are committed to making money do good through our ethical approach to investing.”
In total, 138 companies were finalized for Best for the World, coming from 15 different industries, prominently including Manufacturing and Engineering.
“We are pleased to be recognized with the ‘Best in the World’ title, alongside honorees from across the globe who share our priorities and conduct business in a responsible, sustainable and moral manner,” said Mr Vernon.
