WHEB Asset Management named in B Corp’s ‘Best for the World’ 2021 list


 

WHEB Asset Management is thrilled to have been named in B Corporation’s ‘Best For The World’ list 2021.

Honoured in the ‘Customers’ category, we are delighted to be recognised in the top 5% of all B Corps in our size group worldwide for our sustainable business practices, based on an independent, comprehensive assessment administered by the non-profit B Lab.

For the fourth time, WHEB has been recognised as one of the companies creating the most positive overall impact in the Customers category.

WHEB Asset Management made the list thanks to exceptional practices which are embedded in WHEB’s business mission to advance sustainability and create prosperity through positive impact investments.

George Latham, Managing Partner, said,

“WHEB is proud to be a Certified B Corporation and we are delighted to be honoured in the Customers category for a fourth time. Certifying as a B Corp in 2016 was the first step for us, so we are really pleased that we have continued to improve our impact score over the last five years, and we are regularly being recognised for how we serve our clients. As more asset managers become B Corps, this growing community is demonstrating the positive impact investment firms can have. Their businesses can truly be a force for good.”

The Best for the World recognition is administered by B Lab, the global nonprofit network that certifies and mobilizes Certified B Corporations, which are for-profit companies that meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. Today there are more than 4,000 Certified B Corporations across 77 countries and 153 industries, unified by one common goal: transforming the global economy to benefit all people, communities, and the planet.

Best for the World is a special program for the B Corp community, and we’re thrilled to resume it after pausing the program in 2020 due to COVID-19,” said Juan Pablo Larenas, Executive Director of B Lab Global. “This year’s Best for the World companies are operating at the very top of their class, excelling in creating positive impact for their stakeholders, including their workers, communities, customers and the environment. We’re proud of the community of stakeholder-driven businesses we’ve cultivated over the last 15 years; together we’re marching toward our collective vision of an inclusive, equitable and regenerative economic system for all people and the planet.”

More than 800 B Corps from more than 50 countries were named to the 2021 Best for the World lists, including 4G Capital, KeepCup, Natura, The Big Issue Group, TOMS, Too Good To Go, and Patagonia. The 2021 Best for the World lists are determined based on the verified B Impact Assessments of Certified B Corporations.
