Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corps are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.
The B Corp community works toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of more high-quality jobs with dignity and purpose. By harnessing the power of business, B Corps use profits and growth as a means to a greater end: positive impact for their employees, communities, and the environment.
To date, there are just over 3000 companies globally, under 100 in Asia, and only 8 in Hong Kong with the B-Corp Certification. The Coffee Academics is actively pursuing this certification process, hoping to become one of the first 10 companies in Hong Kong ever to become a B-Corp.
B Corp Certification doesn’t just evaluate a product or service; it assesses the overall positive impact of the company that stands behind it. And increasingly that’s what people care most about.
Conscious of everything we do, from bean to cup, we continuously strive to reduce our footprint and give back to the very soil, the very farmers that give so much. As a brewing force for good, every cup of The Coffee Academics is an opportunity to have a positive impact in our own communities and the environment. Learn more about our ESG practice here.
