SCB Group, the world-leading, low carbon commodity company, is pleased to announce that it has become a Certified B Corporation® across its offices in Switzerland, the United Kingdom, the United States and Singapore. Also, SCB becomes the first Puerto Rican Certified B Corporation®
As a Certified B Corporation®, SCB meets the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. The B Corporation assessment looks at five impact areas: governance, workers, community, environment, and customers, and implements the triple bottom line approach (people, planet and profit ) to address social and environmental challenges.
“Our clients, partners and employees all expect the highest standards. Becoming a Certified B Corporation displays our commitment to social and environmental progress,” said Kevin McGeeney, CEO of SCB.
Carlota Garcia-Manas, Non-Executive Director and Chair of SCB’s Sustainability Committee, added: “We are proud to be representing the B Corp community in various jurisdictions including Puerto Rico. As the island works towards a cleaner future, we are happy to help it reach its goal of 100% renewables by 2050.”
Jonathan Normand, Executive Director, B Lab (Switzerland): “We are thrilled to welcome SCB Group, supporting the economic transition to a low carbon future, into the B Corp movement. The challenge now is to predict the type of renewable energy to be implemented in the future, for which SCB Group brings a proposal worth exploring and amplifying. Within the movement, B Corp certified companies will help determine the commodities of the future as part of the B system-change dynamics.”
SCB Group is now part of a community of over 3800 businesses globally, all certified by B Lab. These leading businesses come from 150+ industries and 75+ countries all pursuing one unifying goal – to redefine success in business.
