Strongim Bisnis is an Australian Government initiative that is implemented by Adam Smith International (ASI). ASI has been recognised as a 'force for good', winning B Corp certification and joining the ranks of 2,500 leading businesses around the world.
As an ASI project, Strongim Bisnis is proud to announce ASI's B Corp certification because certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corps are considered to accelerate a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.
Winning certification requires businesses to undergo rigorous independent verification to determine that it contributes to an inclusive and sustainable society. To be certified, a company must have voluntarily structured itself to create value for society, rather than just for shareholders and be scored against how well it meets these objectives. ASI achieved the second highest score among a 226-strong community of B Corps in the UK.
The certification is awarded by B Lab, a non-profit organisation that has awarded B Corp certification to 2,500 for-profit organisations around the world. Chris Turner, Executive Director of B Lab UK said “We are delighted to welcome ASI to the B Corp movement. ASI is a business that is committed to doing good around the world, including in some of the poorest and most fragile countries”. “It’s exciting to see these principles embedded throughout the business, and for ASI to join us on the B Corp mission of ‘business as a force for good.”
