Certified B Corporations are a new kind of corporation that uses the power of business to improve environmental and social issues. To quote from the B Corp Declaration, these companies “envision a new sector of the economy which harnesses the power of private enterprise to create public benefit. This sector is comprised of a new type of corporation – the B Corporation – which is purpose-driven, and creates benefit for all stakeholders, not just shareholders.”
Akamai is proud to be a Certified B Corporation!
What is a Certified B Corporation?
Why do B Corps matter?
B Corps are important because, as change agents, they inspire all businesses to compete not only to be the best in the world, but to be the best for the world.
B Corps are leading a global movement to redefine success in business by voluntarily meeting higher standards of transparency, accountability, and performance.
Why did Akamai choose to become a B Corp?
The B Corp certification is an independent, third party endorsement and a public declaration of the values, mission and systems that underpin our entire business. Our mission is to promote health and well-being while reducing the inflated costs, waste, harmful chemicals and excess consumerism in personal care.
How did we become certified?
All B corps are certified by the nonprofit B Lab. To become certified, a company must meet B Lab’s comprehensive Performance Requirements, which measure the company’s impact on all stakeholders, including workers, suppliers, community, customers and the environment. Meeting or exceeding these requirements becomes a formal (legal) commitment with B Corp Certification.
What other companies are B Corporations?
Today, there is a growing community of more than 2,100 Certified B Corps from 50 countries and over 130 industries. They include Patagonia, Seventh Generation, Whole Foods and Dr. Bronners to name a few.
HIGHLIGHTS IN AKAMAI’S B CORPORATION ASSESSMENT
We scored high on ingredient and product safety (organic certification for many ingredients, non-toxicity, biodegradability, cruelty-free, responsible sourcing). The assessment also recognized our contribution to waste reduction resulting from our customers using fewer—i.e. a smaller volume of—personal care products, and therefore less packaging too.
We received significant points for our supplier selection. We source shipping boxes from a certified minority-owned packaging company that provides our 100% recycled paperboard boxes; our soap manufacturer is a certified organic facility; as is our toothpaste and skin fuel manufacturer. Our suppliers are independently owned too.
Because we try to integrate our commitment to a positive impact in all our business decisions, our offices are in the Boulder Impact Hub – an international network of co-working spaces dedicated to sustainable businesses and a fellow B Corps.
While we are proud of the positive impact we are achieving already, we strive to continually improve our performance. Join us in our mission!
You won't regret the purchase. This soap simplified my shower routine, and it really works exactly as described. Toss out all the other bottles cluttering your shower and get this bar.
I have tried natural toothpastes or powders from time to time as I am health conscious with sensitive teeth. Personally, I believe this is the best mineral toothpaste powder I have used to date. It's pleasant enough, cleans well, and doesn't cause irritation. In fact, one tooth so painful I could hardly touch it became pain free after using the product for about a week. That sold me on it!
I love the company and all of the products I’ve tried but the oil pulling mouthwash is a total transformational product! I had a cavity that was bothering me and after using this I no longer feel any pain or sensitivity. I use it 3 times weekly and my mouth has never felt better!
I have used this soap for about 3 years. Totally trust it Keeps me feeling fresh all day.
Loving skin fuel for removing makeup even waterproof mascara, works in a flash. Use 1or2 pumps for face and neck. Them wait a few wash off with warm wash cloth. Works amazing! Then applying black balm as my night time cream. Skin feels super healthy and alive! Another home run from Akamai!
I liked the infused black floss kit a lot as well as a few other items that I purchased from Akamai. I keep finding new uses for your products. I have been using clean products for several years now, hopping around among a few brands that I like. Now I have a company I can stay with long term and use fewer products overall!
Light feel, light scent, deep conditioning, and brightening. I love this product.
I am liking this toothpaste. My teeth like it. The color looks to be coming back into my teeth- they were beginning to look transparent before. My gums are happier too. I am a satisfied customer.
I really love just having this one bar in my shower. I don't like clutter or things everywhere so I appreciate how simple my shower is now without all the bottles I used to have.
Minimalist, healthy, all-in-one soap/shampoo/shave lotion bar lasts a long time. Skin and hair oil is soothing, really helps counter the Colorado dryness.
Love these products. They are all natural and leave me feeling clean.
My face is super dry, and my skin is extremely sensitive, so I can't use a lot of products. I use Skin Fuel on my face with no issues! Yay, my skin doesn't hate me now!
I use this on my infant daughter’s eczema and it works to smooth and heal her lesions. Thank you!
This is skin magic. Even in winter when all the things are dry and cracking, this is liquid wonder.
Love, Love my Akamai 3 in 1 bar. I have used it to shave & to shower but decided my #1 use is to shampoo with it! I have long hair & can't believe that I don't even need conditioner!
