Arbonne International, LLC has announced it has earned B Corporation (B Corp) certification, celebrating the brand’s strong environmental commitments to sustainability and responsible corporate citizenship.
B Corp certification comprehensively measures a company’s social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability. Businesses are verified by the nonprofit B Lab for their measurable impact on people and planet, and unlike traditional corporations, are required to consider the impact of their decisions on all stakeholders: customers, workers, communities, and the environment.
Achieving B Corp certification further signifies Arbonne’s commitment to be a mission-driven company that empowers people to flourish.
Having 40 years of expertise, Arbonne continues to produce clean, plant-based products. Its new brand platform “Mind. Body. Skin.” focuses on a holistic approach to healthy living.
With 84% of the world experiencing stress, Arbonne is looking to address a positive mindset in tandem with a healthy gut to innovate around the “Mind. Body. Skin.” connection, bringing nutrition and skincare to a new frontier.
One of Arbonne’s newest sustainability programs is ArbonneCycle, a new recycling program for its hard-to-recycle packaging and componentry in partnership with TerraCycle. Arbonne is working toward empowering business leaders and clients to live waste-conscious lives. The program recently launched in the United States with plans to expand globally in the future.
Through B Corp certification, Arbonne joins a global network of more than 3,000 companies including Patagonia, Toms Shoes, Ben & Jerrys and Athleta.
“Sustainability is a journey, and our B Corp certification is just the beginning,” Arbonne CEO Jean-David Schwartz said. “Arbonne is using its business success as a force for good as we build a more inclusive economy for the world. We hold ourselves accountable to support a thriving planet and improved community well-being. We have set impactful goals and will not waiver from our commitments.”
Schwartz continued, “Arbonne’s sustainability pillars that guide all decision making are: Environmental Impact, Employee Welfare, Company Governance, Customer Welfare and Community Impact. Through this major milestone, we voice our commitment to always balance people, planet and profit.”
“We are proud to welcome Arbonne to our growing community of Certified B Corporations who are redefining success in business to balance both profit and purpose,” said Andy Fyfe, senior manager, B Corp growth and activation. “Arbonne’s move to certify as a B Corp signals a wider societal interest in the power of business to provide long-term value for all stakeholders, including workers, community, and the environment.”
