B CORP® CERTIFICATION

In 2016 the Davines Group joined the family of B Corps with a score of 99. In 2020, thanks to the efforts made, we have recertified improving our score up to 117.4 points.

Our new score

For the Davines Group, 2019 was the year of B Corp® recertification. An important moment that verified the whole company's commitment to improving our positive impact on the planet and people.This confirms the value of our efforts that have been implemented since 2016. 


The goal was not only to confirm our B Corp certification but to also carry on our journey inside the most important global network of companies that adopt a sustainable business model.


We wanted to considerably improve the score achieved in 2016. And we have been successful in this: three years ago, our score was 99, in 2020 we have achieved a score of 117.4.

B Corp®, measuring our positive impact

To become a B Corp® a company needs to complete a B Impact Assessment, a quantitative procedure that analyses every aspect of the business activity and measures with an exact score the impact on several areas of interest. Only companies whose score is higher than 80 points out of a total of 200 can become a B Corp.

Davines became a B Corp® with a score of 99 in 2016, but certification has a validity of three years, after which the assessment procedure must be repeated to make sure that the sustainability standards have been maintained and improved. This is what happened at Davines: in 2020 we have improved our score up to 117.4 points

Davines

 

Measuring and challenging oneself to produce an increasingly more positive impact on the people and the environment is a shared feeling amongst B Corps. We believe that in the future there will no longer be companies that do not share and implement regenerative actions to give back more than they take.


Why are B Corps different from other companies?

Being a B Corp® means believing in an alternative business model where the respect for people and the environment is the focus of every day activities.

Davines is not only a Certified B Corporation®, in 2019 it also became a Benefit Corporation. Let’s find out what these definitions mean.

  • B Corp®
  • Benefit Corporation
  • Standard Company

Instead, B Corporations® choose to distribute the value they create not only among shareholders, but also among all stakeholders: employees, suppliers, the local community where the company operates, the environment.


Davines has been a B Corp® since 2016.

When a company decides to become a Benefit Corporation, it reinforces in its by-laws the commitment to operate not only for profit, but also for the benefit of the planet and the community.
