4THBIN recognized as a “Best For The World: Environment”
for sustainability and environmental excellence.
New York City, NY; September 4th, 2019 – 4THBIN, a certified B Corp, has been named a Best For The World: Environment
honoree in recognition of their environmental performance and sustainable business practices.
Ranking in the top 10% of all B Corps for their environmental responsibility, 4THBIN earned this honor because of their internal initiatives as well as for services core to their business including door-to-door electronic recycling, highly certified waste tracking and having one of the highest re-use ratios of e-waste collectors in the region.
“We are so proud of the work our team has done in the 10 years since our founding,” says Thomas Clancy, Vice President and co-founder of 4THBIN. “We’ve protected our environment from millions of pounds of electronic waste’s impact and provided low-cost refurbished technology to thousands of happy customers. We’ve worked closely with the United Nations and the Basel Action Network as we strive to be the best e-waste manager in the world. Our recognition by B Lab as being ‘Best FOR the World’ only adds inspiration and momentum to our movement.”
Best For The World: Environment recognition is administered by B Lab, the global nonprofit that certifies and supports Certified B Corporations, which are for-profit companies dedicated to using business as a force for good. Today there are 3,000 Certified B Corporations across 64 countries and 150 industries, unified by one common goal to redefine success in business.
B Corps meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corp Certification doesn’t just evaluate a product or service; it assesses the overall positive impact of the company that stands behind it—like 4THBIN. Using the B Impact Assessment, B Lab evaluates how a company’s operations and business model impact its workers, community, environment, and customers. To achieve the B Corp Certification, a company must achieve a score of at least 80 points on the assessment.
“We’re incredibly proud of this year’s Best for The World honorees,” says Anthea Kelsick, Chief Marketing Officer of B Lab. “These inspiring companies represent the kinds of business models and impact-driven business strategies that are building a new economy—one that is inclusive, regenerative, and delivers value to all stakeholders, not just shareholders. To that end, B Corps like 4THBIN are redefining capitalism and showing that it actually can work for everyone.”
1,000 B Corps from 44 countries here named to the 2019 Best for The World lists, including Patagonia, Beautycounter, Dr. Bronner’s, TOMS, Seventh Generation, and Greyston Bakery. The 2019 Best for The World honorees are determined based on the verified B Impact Assessments of Certified B Corporations.
