Weleda has achieved a B Corp certification with a score of 106.9.
To qualify for B Corp certification, a company must complete the B Impact Assessment (BIA) and obtain a minimum of 80 points on its 200-point scale. During the BIA, businesses are assessed and measured in five areas: workers, community, governance, environment and customers.
The company processes several hundred raw plant materials, which are cultivated in the company's eight biodynamic plant gardens or sourced from more than 50 long-term raw materials partnerships around the world.
Rob Keen, CEO of Weleda, said: "For 100 years, Weleda has been an innovator in regenerative business practices that meaningfully impact the health of our planet, our fair trade partners and our communities. "In our centennial year, we deemed it critical to demonstrate our alignment with the 4000+ other B Corp organizations in our collective goal to positively influence environmental and social impact. We are incredibly proud of our newly minted B Corp Certification and hope we can encourage more organizations to adopt the same commitment."
Stefan Siemer, head of corporate sustainability for Weleda AG, said: "We are excited to be a part of this incredible community, to serve as a role model, and to support our peers as we unite in the desire to make a difference. As our customers become increasingly aware of how their own consumption impacts the planet and society, it is our obligation as the industry leader in certified natural cosmetics to enhance our efforts to help them accomplish this goal."
