Washington — Divine Chocolate Ltd. was named to the Best for Community list, a ranking complied by B Corp certifying nonprofit B Lab.
Companies receiving the Best for Community recognition earned a community score in the top 10 percent of the more than 2,100 certified B Corps. To become certified, companies are independently assessed to meet stands of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency, the chocolate maker reports.
Sophi Tranchell, Divine CEO, says: “It’s a great affirmation that Divine Chocolate is successfully using business as a force for good. For too long, business success has just been about revenue and profit. We urgently need more companies to consider how they make their money and the impact they have on employees, suppliers, environment and community.”
