B Corp is to business what fair trade is to coffee. The B Corp label certifies companies that harness the power of business to solve social and environmental issues and that follow a comprehensive set of performance and legal requirements.
We received our first B Corp certification in 2015, being the first certified B Corp in Luxembourg. In 2017 and 2018, Innpact was recognized as Best For The World Overall B Corp for creating extraordinary positive impact as a business.
We aspired for the B Corp certification as a result of our strong commitment to creating long lasting social and environmental impact. It is important to us to find a way to benchmark our performance over time and assess where we can improve as a company. We also want to signal to our partners and clients that our commitment to social and environmental responsibility is real and encourage them to thrive themselves to the high standards of B Corp companies.
To attain the B Corp certification, a company must meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, legally expand its corporate responsibilities to include consideration of stakeholder interests, and build collective voice through the power of the unifying B Corporation brand. https://bcorporation.eu/what-are-b-corps
We are determined to neutralise our carbon footprint. We care about our effect on the climate and do our best to make our operations as climate friendly as possible, a.o. using electricity and gas from 100% renewable sources and controling our supply chain. All CO² emissions we are responsible for, including staff members’ commutes, are measured via the MyClimate carbon footprint calculator and are compensated by way of donations to climate protection projects.
Our Social Contract as part and parcel of our corporate social responsibility
With a purpose to foster a meaningful link between our company, our employees and society, we contribute part of our resources in a responsible way to projects that create opportunities in our local community and in target countries. Our Social Contract is a way for us to support fantastic initiatives that we would normally not be a part of in our core business. Our support is provided by way of pro bono consulting and by financial support to projects where we can make a positive impact. The Social Contract is steered by our Social Contract Committee, composed of dedicated Innpact staff members.
