B Corp Bins - Method's Certified!

We’re beyond thrilled to announce that we’re now a Certified B Corporation!

There are a lot of certifications out there that we could’ve gone for, but B Corp resonated with who Method is as a business; we're led by our purpose - to redesign the way modern organisations recycle. More than that, using our brand and communications to be a positive and educational voice in an industry that gets a lot of bad press.

But B Corp is more than recycling or the environment, it's the rigorous assessment of the way we do business in 5 categories: governance, workers, environmental impact, community engagement and our customers; it holds us to the highest of standards in all that we do. The B Corp movement signifies a new way of doing business, moving away from a shareholder first approach and legally commits organisations to consider all stakeholders in each and every decision.

We're proud that we completed our application process with a score of 94.3, which is above the minimum 80 points required. But this is just a launching pad, B Corp now acts as a guide to help us to continuously improve what we do and how we do it.

It's safe to say, that being a certified B Corporation is an amazing achievement for Method. There are now over 3000 in the world and it continues to grow, it’s an honour to be part of a community of organisations that are using their business as a force for good and like Method, are led by their purpose to have a positive material impact.

Our co-founder and CEO Steven Korner believes that “achieving B Corporation Certification is a huge accomplishment, a clear cut sign that we’re achieving what we set out to do when India and I started Method just a few years ago.”

In New Zealand, our home-base, we’re the 27th Certified B Corp - following in the footsteps of other great organisations such as Little Yellow Bird, Sharesies, Ethique, Kathmandu (several of who are our customers!).

Seeing Kathmandu certified came as no surprise to us, they’ve been doing great work since way back! An extra feather in their cap - they’re the largest B Corp in Australia and New Zealand.

You can read the full break down of our certification here, again it’s all about transparency. Have a question about BCorp? Let us know on our socials.
