4ocean is now a Certified B Corp!
We are excited to announce that 4ocean is now an official Certified B Corp!
B Corps are for-profit companies that use the power of business to build a more inclusive, equitable, and sustainable economy for all people and the planet. This small but growing community is accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business. The goal is to create benefit for all stakeholders, not just shareholders, while meeting the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability.
B Corp certification is one of the only certifications that’s not for a product or service, but for the company as a whole, which helps consumers identify companies with a mission that aligns with their values. As both a Certified B Corp and Public Benefit Corporation, we remain committed to educating people about the ocean plastic crisis and empowering them to live a more ocean-friendly lifestyle, advocating for ocean-friendly legislation that improves waste management infrastructure and stops the cycle of overproduction and overconsumption that contributes to plastic pollution, hiring captains and crews around the world, investing in new technologies and solutions that stop plastic pollution, creating jobs that reduce inequality, decrease poverty, strengthen our communities, and give people dignity and purpose, offsetting our carbon footprint and operating as a climate positive business, and exploring new and innovative ideas that will continue to increase our impact.
We’re incredibly proud of our new B Corp certification and you should be, too. Every pound you pull helps us advance our mission in countless ways and this certification is as much your achievement as it is ours. Together, we can end the ocean plastic crisis.
