What are the business reasons why we are considering certification?
Certification is the most powerful way to build credibility, trust, and value for your business. They help stakeholders, especially consumers, understand that your business has gone through a third-party verification process to attest to the accountability and integrity of your story.
Sustainability certifications are voluntary norms and standards relating to environmental, social, ethical, and governance issues.
There are various certifications to choose from, from a 360 degrees certification such as B-Corp that verifies that your operation meets standards in four key areas – environmental, community, governance, and employees -, or a less rigorous certification like Benefit Corporation for Good. Fair Trade and 1% For The Planet are popular and prestigious certifications to pursue.
Also, Amazon has partnered with a wide range of external certifications, including governmental agencies, non-profits, and independent laboratories, to help distinguish more sustainable products. They also created their own certification, Compact by Design, to identify products that have a more efficient design, require less packaging, and become more efficient to ship.
