Dignity - What it means to be B Corp certified

Dignity - What it means to be B Corp certified

Dignity is proud to be one of 30 companies in New Zealand and 3,235 globally to be awarded B Corp certification.  B Corps are for-profit organisations that use their power to bring about positive change in the world.

It is a rigorous process that requires us to consider the impact of our decisions on our workers, customers, suppliers, community and the environment.  

It’s not about ticking boxes, it’s not a status - it’s a journey - often challenging and definitely robust! It is a really deep analysis to understand if your business is living and being the values you want to see in the world. 

To us, the B Corp certification and process is the highest public standard to which a company can review and claim its balance of profit and purpose. That is something we want to demonstrate to our stakeholders and be part of a global community that truly operates to achieve better social and environmental outcomes.

We have always felt that Dignity is a company that lives its values and now more than ever we want to put that to the test with a well-known certification that would help our corporate partners understand how serious we are about our mission.⁠

In times of crisis this is more important than ever.  It is times like these that the need to stay true to your values is paramount and often when it is the hardest.  Our B Corp certification holds us accountable to our values;

Diversity – Inclusion – Accountability – Sustainability – Transparency
