Made Open becomes a Certified B Corporation®.
We are thrilled and proud to announce that Made Open is a Certified B Corporation®. This means we are a for-profit company that uses the power of business to build a more inclusive and sustainable economy. It also means we meet the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability.
It’s been a long journey for us achieving Certified B Corp status. The process has helped us to look introspectively at all aspects of our business; what we’re doing, why we’re doing it and how we measure our performance in terms of our approach to governance, staff, customers, communities and the environment.
Our mission at Made Open is to create positive and sustainable social change using design and technology; however, proving it has (in the past) been difficult. Becoming B Corp has helped our team to refocus our core values, renew our business goals and develop a set of performance measures in line with a selection of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
We now join over 2,500 Certified B Corporations from more than 130 industries and 60 countries with one unifying goal: to redefine success in business. We’ve amended our governance so that, by law, we make decisions and implement practices that consider the impact on all our stakeholders – employees, customers, society and the environment.
The B Corp community works towards reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of high quality jobs with dignity and purpose.
