At Integral we are honored with this distinction. We want to share it with cooperatives, because we understand that through us, their values and their action have been recognized. We do it at the same time with the organizations and companies with which we walk. In it we recognize people determinedly oriented to build a better world.
To be the best companies for the world, and not just the world, this is the purpose of the B-Corp companies, an international movement of social enterprises that understands that its final objective should not be the mere attainment of the economic benefit, but the generation of positive impacts in the social and environmental sphere, and also in their environment and in the lives of their own employees. All this through processes and practices of transparency and corporate responsibility.
More than 2,000 companies in 50 countries are B Corp. They have successfully passed a certification process that requires time and effort.
There are more than 40,000 registered companies to achieve certification, but only 2,000 so far.
In Spain we are 36 companies.
The rating required to reach B Corp’s rating is 80 out of 200 points. Obtaining a mark of 108 by Integral is considered an excellent record.
For our values as a cooperative company
It is a cooperative enterprise where each person really contributes, participating actively in the construction of everything that lives.
For our commitment to the environment
We are convinced that soon, more and more people will demand real evidence that they relate to companies that have decided to “be good” for the world. Being part of the B Corp community is our way of showing that we want to be.
For our commitment to humanize the economy
We seek for the world the same change that we try to lead. We want a decidedly more humane economy, where the person and the planet come first, really the first.
