Earth Foundries, Inc. Is Now a Certified B Corporation

Saratoga, California, June 20th, 2024– Earth Foundries, a certified woman-owned business with a mission to end California’s catastrophic wildfire threat and address global warming, proudly announces that our company is now B Corp Certified. This prestigious certification recognizes our commitment to meeting the highest standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.

“We are incredibly proud to join the ranks of Certified B Corporations,” said Dede Smullen, Chairwoman of Earth Foundries. “When we founded Earth Foundries in 2021, we purposefully incorporated as a benefit corporation because it was important to us that we codify our company’s mission into our for-profit company’s DNA.  This certification is a testament to our unwavering commitment to making a positive impact on the world. It’s a crucial milestone that validates our efforts and encourages us to continue striving for excellence in all aspects of our business.”

Why Becoming a Benefit Corporation is Important

Benefit Corporation certification is more than just a mark of distinction; it is a reflection of our dedication to creating a positive impact on society and the environment. B Corps optimize for purpose and profit. They are required to consider the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment. This is a significant step for Earth Foundries, as it aligns with our mission to drive business as a force for good to end California’s catastrophic wildfire threat.

Commitment to Higher Standards

Achieving B Corp certification is no small feat. It requires rigorous verification by B Lab, a non-profit organization that certifies B Corporations. The certification process evaluates how a company’s operations and business model impact its workers, community, environment, and customers. To receive certification, companies must score a minimum of 80 points on the B Impact Assessment, a comprehensive evaluation tool.

As a B Corp, Earth Foundries is part of a global community of businesses that meet high standards of social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability.
