Melbourne-based SME Anywise has become a Certified B Corporation, a new kind of company that uses the power of business to address societal challenges.
“Since 2014, Anywise has held a strong commitment to serve the communities in which it operates. Now it has met the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability and has been able to balance profit and purpose,” Managing Director Adam Evans said.
In a statement, Anywise said that Certified B Corporations are a global movement aiming to offer a positive vision of a better way to do business.
“Anywise joins a very small number of companies in the Australian defence market that have chosen to meet this high standard," Evans said. "As a certified B Corporation, Anywise measures the impact of its business on its workers, community, and the environment with as much rigor as it manages and monitors its profits.”
There are over 2,000 certified B Corporations in over 130 industries across the globe.
