We are excited to share that Parker Clay is now a Certified B Corporation! While we have made increasing efforts to measure our impact in Ethiopia and beyond over the past few years, becoming a Certified B Corporation means that we are now verified by a third-party as operating our business in way that positively impacts our employees, customers, suppliers, community, and the global environment.
What is a B Corp Certification?
The B Lab is a nonprofit that evaluates companies on all business levels to verify that they are operating at the highest standard of social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability. The evaluation goes beyond production and process to look at all aspects of how business standards and practices create a positive impact.
What does this mean for Parker Clay?
For Parker Clay, becoming a Certified B Corporation has allowed us to take an in-depth look at all that we do, from how we package our products to the working environment and health of our employees, ensuring all that we do both in the US and in Ethiopia has the highest level of positive social and environmental impact.
The best part is that the work doesn’t stop here! Obtaining this certification means that we will continue to evaluate our practices in each step as we move forward in the operation and growth of our business. We are joining over 2,000 other companies who are striving to do the same, which means we are part of a community of businesses all working to create positive change locally and globally.
