What is a B Corp?
B Corps are verified by the non-profit B Lab for their positive impact on people and planet, and their vision that businesses can do good and turn a profit.
OTA successfully certified as a B Corp in July 2017 and we are heading towards our next assessment in 2020.
B Corp is an important aspect of who we are at OTA, and collectively we have exciting and meaningful work to do. We are part of a rapidly growing community both in the private and public sectors who are known as being better companies – better for employees, better for the communities and better for the environment.
Did you know?
We’re in very good company – we are among 2564 B Corporations in 50+ countries, across 130 industries with one uniting vision of people using business as a force for goodTM.
If that doesn’t sound like too many, a further 50,000 companies have taken this same rigorous assessment to gauge their standing on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
Notable names in this B Community include Patagonia, Athleta, Etsy, Ben & Jerry’s, Eileen Fisher, Danone NA, and Earthbound.
