ECOFILTRO IS CERTIFIED AS A “B CORPORATION”BY GENERATING SOCIAL ANDENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT WORLDWIDE
Guatemala, February 18, 2020. Since 2019, Ecofiltro had worked on the process to be certified by B Corps, an organization dedicated to enabling companies driven by their mission of leaving their mark to protect and improve their positive impact in time and at the same time preserve it.
Recently Ecofiltro became a certified “B Corporation,” which endorses its commitment to the positive movement to use businesses as a force for the common good. The Guatemalan company now belongs to an international community that works to reduce inequality, lower levels of malnutrition, and offer a healthier environment with stronger communities contributing to society by generating high-quality jobs with dignity and purpose.
By harnessing the power of business, Ecofiltro uses its profits and growth as a means to a greater end: having a positive impact on the lives of their employees, communities, and the environment. The brand is already a part of a select group of leading companies that promote a global movement, being drivers for change, recognizing that through their products, services, and practices they must aspire to other positive actions, thus creating a ripple effect in society.
“It took several months of hard teamwork while we applied to this certification; several documents and forms were requested from us in order to support the work of years and our results in social and environmental impact. This opened our eyes to acknowledging the long way we’ve come, and our hearts are filled with joy from knowing that we continue to fulfill the mission of the brand and harvesting success in the name of Guatemala and the inventor of Ecofiltro, Fernando Mazariegos” … remarks Phillip Wilson, CEO of Ecofiltro
This certification not only evaluates the services or products, it also assesses the overall positive impact of the company that stands behind it. In order to obtain the certification, Ecofiltro underwent a rigorous assessment of this impact on its workers, customers, community, and environment, making the report transparent by posting it on bcorporation.net. The combination of different processes and validations such as public transparency and others, help B Corps build trust and value to continue with the process until completing it this February 2020.
B Corps are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy. We are proud to know that thanks to a 100% Guatemalan invention and the work of many people, Ecofiltro belongs today to an international community positively positioned in the eyes of the world for giving back to the country and its society
