Bazzani: Certified B Corp and “Best for the World” Honoree

At Bazzani, we are passionate advocates of sustainable living and totally committed to business as a force for good. We don’t just design and build green, we live it. Our clients tell us it is evident in our approach, our operations, and our buildings.

In 2014, Bazzani Building Company proudly earned B Corp status and become certified by the non-profit B Lab as an official B Corp. To achieve this, we met rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. B Corp refers to this as an organization’s B Impact Score.

In spring 2015, we learned of our inclusion on the Best for the World list, the gold standard for high impact companies. As an honoree, Bazzani Building Company is recognized for earning a B Impact Score in the top 10% globally.

Today, there is a growing community of over 1,000 Certified B Corps from 33 countries representing 60 industries. Together, we are working toward one unifying goal: to redefine success in business. As a B Corp, we recognize we must be the change we want in the world, that business should be conducted as if people and place matters and continually strive to benefit all. That’s why we consistently embrace the Triple Bottom Line philosophy.

We hold fast to the belief that we are interdependent and responsible for each other and future generations. That’s why we adhere to the Triple Bottom Line philosophy in all we do. As a result, individuals and communities will enjoy greater economic opportunity, society will address its most challenging environmental problems, and more people will find fulfillment in their work.

Bazzani always has and always will use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. Our positive impact on clients, tenants, employees, the community, and the environment is highlighted in our B Corp report (on the right).
