Australian born absorbent apparel brand Modibodi has announced its certification as a B Corp business.
Modibodi joins fellow sustainable Australian brands Bassike, Clothing the Gaps, PE Nation, and more as a Certified B Corp Business.
A B Corp Certification is a designation that a business is meeting high standards of verified performance, accountability, and transparency on factors from employee benefits and charitable giving to supply chain practices and input materials. The social sustainability and performance standard is a holistic certification process that requires verification across many different levels in a business. Conferred by B Lab, a global non-profit, companies must receive a minimum score of 80 from the assessment of their performance, must integrate B Corp commitments into their mission, and pay an annual fee based on annual sales. While holding no legal status, the process is rigorous and the certification holds enormous social capital as well as holding companies accountable for their impact.
A B Corp Certification is measured across a series of actions including Climate Action, Circular Design, Responsible Sourcing and Social Impact.
Companies must document their positive impact to apply using the B Impact Assessment tool, and undergo an independent verification process every three years to achieve and maintain certification.
Modibodi has achieved the certification for its commendable social and environmental impact and the completion of a rigorous assessment process and scored 97 points for its efforts.
Modibodi products are made with sustainable, recycled, premium fabrics. The company is meeting high standards of verified performance, accountability, and transparency on factors from employee benefits, charitable giving such as the Game Changer Grant to supply chain practices and the fabrics used to create it’s products.
“We are thrilled to start our year by announcing that Modibodi has become a ‘Certified B Corp Business’ and with an assessment score that demonstrates our values and focus on continuous improvement to deliver better business for all,” said Modibodi Executive Director, Kerry Cusack.
“Creating a positive impact is embedded into the products we make, and as a purpose-led business we place people, the planet and the communities we serve at the centre of our decisions.”
