Vestergaard, the global manufacturing company has announced its newly earned B Corporation Certification, strengthening the brand’s commitment to use business as a vehicle to address some of public health’s greatest challenges and achieve prosperity for all.
By joining the B Corp Community, Vestergaard joins the global movement of for-profit companies dedicated to using business as a force for good.
“This certification reaffirms the commitment Vestergaard made more than two decades ago to use our innovation and technology platform to improve health outcomes for the most vulnerable groups,” said Nicolas Schornoz, CFOO of Vestergaard.
“Earning B Corp certification shows that we have met the highest levels of verified social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability. With this also comes a vested interest to safeguard our positive impact, especially in times of need. Deeply involved in the fight to end malaria, we’ve seen how COVID-19 has threatened the deployment of bednets needed to save lives. We recognise the need to create scalable and sustainable solutions to ensure that the gains made thus far to end malaria are not lost.”
The B Corp Movement is made up of over 3,800 businesses globally, across 150 industries who are committed to measuring their impact and building better businesses. Unlike traditional corporations, B Corps are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on all stakeholders: customers, workers, communities, and the environment.
As a Certified B Corp, Vestergaard will measure and manage the impact of its business on its employees, community and the environment with as much rigor as it manages and monitors its profits.
