Rubicon Named to 2018 “Best For The World” List

 

Rubicon was named by B Lab on its Best For The World 2018 list recognizing the world’s best Certified B Corporations. This year, Rubicon was recognized in two categories: Governance and Environment. In its annual list, B Lab highlights Certified B Corporations with B Impact Assessment scores in the top 10 percent of the entire global community. Rubicon has made the list for two consecutive years.

“We are honored to be one of the world’s best B corporations for the second year in a row,” said Kerri Faber, vice president of human resources at Rubicon, in a statement. “We are excited about the long-term goals we can accomplish in sustainability and the recognition Rubicon has received based on our positive impact on our employees, community, customers and the environment.”

The Environment portion of the B Impact Assessment evaluates a company’s environmental performance through its facilities, materials, emissions and resource and energy use. Companies answer questions about their transportation/distribution channels and the environmental impact of their supply chain. The Governance portion of the assessment evaluates a company’s overall mission, ethics, accountability, and transparency. It measures whether the company has adopted a social or environmental mission and how it engages its employees, board members, and the community to achieve that mission. This section assesses employee access to financial information, customers’ opportunities to provide feedback and the diversity of the company’s governing bodies.

“With the rise of anger at a system that feels rigged, people are hungry for companies like Rubicon, who are changing the system by building businesses that seek to create the greatest positive impact,” said Jay Coen Gilbert, co-founder of B Lab, in a statement. “Best For The World is the only list of businesses that uses comprehensive, comparable, third-party-validated data about a company’s social and environmental performance. As consumers, talent and investors increasingly demand transparent, values-aligned businesses to buy from, work at and invest in, companies will need to not just be the best in the world but best for the world. Not just to be nice but to be the most successful.

Rubicon’s mission is to end waste. The company’s goal is to help businesses, governments and organizations confidently execute on their sustainability goals, always with an eye toward those solutions that have long-term economic viability.

Rubicon works to find new efficiencies and cost savings in every customer’s waste stream and to develop new and innovative ways to reduce, reuse and recycle materials. Rubicon is using technology and data to disrupt the global waste industry and the traditional model of waste collection that has been focused around the landfill.
