In 2019, Ocean’s proudly became a certified B Corp company joining the ranks of some of the world’s leading companies using business as a force for good. We were so happy to be welcomed into the B Corp community and to be recognized for our commitment to balancing profit with purpose. Not familiar with what sets B Corp companies apart from other businesses and why you should care about whether the companies you purchase from are part of this phenomenal community? Read on to find out!
What is a B Corp?
Balancing performance and purpose, B Corps are committed to using business as a force of positive change in the world. This network of 2,700 countries across 60 countries is evaluated not just based on business performance but also on their positive impact on society. These companies are committed to positively impacting their employees, customers, community and the environment. All B Corps go through rigorous assessment and are required to amend their legal governing documents to require their board of directors to balance profit and purpose.
At Ocean’s, we care about the ocean and are committed to using only sustainable fishing methods. We feel that preserving vulnerable species and ecosystems is important not only to our continued success but to future generations. In partnership with trusted producers, local governments, and organizations, like the Marine Stewardship Council and International Pole & Line Foundation, we work to reduce bycatch and minimize damage to marine environments. As a part of the B Corp community, we’re also committed to considering the impact of our decisions on our employees, customers, suppliers, and community. We’ll always strive to balance these interests with the intention of using business as a force for good.
