Eco-Products® announced today that it has been recertified as a B Corporation, once again achieving the coveted distinction for meeting “high standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency.” This is the third time the company has gone through the rigorous certification and verification process.

To achieve this distinction, Eco-Products met score requirements of the B Impact Assessment, which rates business factors such as employee benefits, civic engagement, DE&I initiatives, product environmental benefits, and the impacts of business operations.

“We’re proud to once again be distinguished as a Certified B Corporation,” said Ian Jacobson, president of Eco-Products. “We share B Lab’s view that a more inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economy is within reach and are excited to continue the work required to help get us there.”

B Corps are required to undergo the verification process every three years, keeping them focused on continuous improvement, notes B Lab, the nonprofit organization that assesses and certifies companies as B Corps.

“B stands for Benefit for all,” B Lab says. “The B Global Network mobilizes the B Corp movement to change our economic system to positively impact all stakeholders — workers, communities, customers, and our planet.”

Eco-Products has taken a number of key steps to use its business as a force for good. This includes providing a growing number of high-quality, innovative products with meaningful environmental benefits made from renewable resources and post-consumer recycled content.

They also thoroughly engage with composting systems and stakeholders in the communities they serve to support the diversion of organics from landfills.

Another step taken is publishing an annual impact report that tracks social and environmental metrics and discloses progress on goals from across the organization.

Eco-Products is also working toward a more equitable and inclusive workplace for employees and donates to environmental causes and organizations, especially those working to expand compost infrastructure.

Additionally, Eco-Products has installed solar panels at its headquarters and produces nearly twice as much electricity as what was consumed in the building in 2022.

Eco-Products offers the broadest array of certified compostable products available on the market today, catering to various industries and businesses, including professional sports teams, venues, campuses, hospitals, corporate campuses, convention centers, and independent foodservice operators.

As a Certified B Corporation, Eco-Products is part of a growing number of companies working to improve the world in more than 150 industries in over 80 countries. They include Eco-Products’ sister company Vegware™, which recently earned certification as a B Corp for the first time.
