Today marks a significant milestone as TSP Smart Spaces proudly joins the ranks of Certified B Corporations! This accomplishment is the culmination of months of dedicated effort, rigorous evaluations, and meaningful organizational shifts aligned with the B Corp mission of driving positive societal and environmental impact. 

For those unfamiliar with B Corporations, it represents a powerful global movement of companies leveraging their businesses as a force for good. Earning this certification is more than just a badge of honor – it’s a commitment to continually reassess and enhance our practices across all areas of social and environmental performance.

From governance and employee policies to sustainable operations and community involvement, we’ve undergone comprehensive scrutiny to verify our positive influence. This process has been transformative, instilling a higher level of accountability, transparency, and stakeholder consideration into our core ethos.

What is a B Corp?

Certified B Corporations are united by a powerful mission – to harness business as a force for good and create a better world for all. While profit remains a driving force, these companies go beyond the bottom line, deeply committing to practices that benefit society and the environment. B Corps aren’t just talking the talk; they’re walking the walk through tangible, impactful actions.

B Corps understand that the decisions businesses make daily can profoundly shape the future of our communities and our planet. They take this responsibility seriously, meticulously evaluating how their operations affect employees, customers, suppliers, and the communities they serve. From ethical governance and fair labor practices to environmental sustainability and community engagement, B Corps raise the bar across entire companies, not just a single department.

Transparency and accountability aren’t just buzzwords for B Corps – they are non-negotiable requirements. We went through rigorous assessments and stringent certification processes to verify our positive impact across multiple metrics. This commitment to open communication builds trust while inspiring other businesses to adopt similar principles.

The Five B Corp Impact Areas

B Corps focus on creating positive impact across five key areas, known as the Impact Areas:

  1. Governance: B Corps have stringent accountability and transparency requirements, ensuring ethical decision-making at all levels.
  2. Workers: This includes providing fair wages, benefits, professional development opportunities, as well as maintaining safe working conditions and positive workplace cultures.
  3. Community: B Corps strive for positive community engagement through local employment opportunities, charitable giving, volunteer programs, and minimizing practices that negatively impact communities.
  4. Environment: They must evaluate their environmental footprint and take demonstrable steps to reduce it through sustainable practices like minimizing waste, emissions, energy, and water use.
  5. Customers: B Corps ensure their products/services create positive value for customers and avoid deceptive or unethical marketing practices.

By comprehensively assessing companies across these Impact Areas, this certification serves as a rigorous standard for identifying businesses truly leading the way in building an inclusive, equitable, and sustainable world.

Why B Corp Certification Matters
