BEST FOR THE WORLD™ 2021 

PRESS RELEASE

PeaceWorks Technology Solutions recognized as a “Best For The World™” B Corp for performance excellence beyond just profit

Waterloo, Ontario, July 14, 2021 – PeaceWorks Technology Solutions, a Certified B Corp, has been named a Best for the World™ B Corp in recognition of its exemplary performance beyond commercial metrics. Ranking in the top 5% of all B Corps in its size group worldwide for their sustainable business practices, PeaceWorks earned this honor in the Worker impact area because of initiatives such as company ownership opportunities, comprehensive benefits, flexible working environments, and a strong commitment to staff, clients, and the community.

As an IT support organization, PeaceWorks understands there is much more than profitability that keeps a company in business. Ian Kelly, General Manager, confirms, “At PeaceWorks, we truly believe that people are our most valuable asset. “People” - and ensuring their well-being - is one of our top 3 corporate goals. We know that when our staff are given opportunities to participate in how the organization is run, they are more committed and content.” This is reflected in the effective and reliable support provided to PeaceWorks’ IT clients who are doing tremendous work in the local and global communities. Whether it is a counselling organization, a food bank, or an international aid & development office, the talented team at PeaceWorks works hard to ensure the missions of their clients are being achieved.

The Best for the World recognition is administered by B Lab, the global nonprofit network that certifies and mobilizes Certified B Corporations, which are for-profit companies that meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. Today there are more than 4,000 Certified B Corporations across 77 countries and 153 industries, unified by one common goal: transforming the global economy to benefit all people, communities, and the planet.

B Corps meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. The B Corp Certification doesn’t just evaluate a product or service, it assesses the overall positive impact of the company that stands behind it—like PeaceWorks Technology Solutions. Using the B Impact Assessment, B Lab evaluates how a company’s operations and business model impact its workers, community, environment, and customers. To achieve the B Corp Certification, a company must achieve a score of at least 80 points on the assessment.

"Best for the World is a special program for the B Corp community, and we're thrilled to resume it after pausing the program in 2020 due to COVID-19," said Juan Pablo Larenas, Executive Director of B Lab Global. "This year's Best for the World companies are operating at the very top of their class, excelling in creating positive impact for their stakeholders, including their workers, communities, customers and the environment. We're proud of the community of stakeholder-driven businesses we've cultivated over the last 15 years; together we're marching toward our collective vision of an inclusive, equitable and regenerative economic system for all people and the planet." 

More than 800 B Corps from more than 50 countries were named to the 2021 Best for the World lists, including 4G Capital, KeepCup, Natura, The Big Issue Group, TOMS, Too Good To Go, and Patagonia. The 2021 Best for the World lists are determined based on the verified B Impact Assessments of Certified B Corporations. The full lists are available on https://bcorporation.net/
