A list released today by a Pennsylvania nonprofit ranks small socially-conscious companies. Berwyn, Pa.-based B Lab created a free, online assessment tool to help businesses track their progress in creating positive impact and based the ranking on its results. B Lab certifies companies as benefit corporations, known as B corporations, a type of company created for the general benefit for society as well as for shareholders.
Those companies who have gone through the process say the certification, while moderately time consuming, gives them credibility with their customers and helps attract talented employees.
Here are companies with between 10 and 49 employees that scored in the top 10 percent on the B Corporation assessment.
