Correction: One more company to be added to the list. Charlestown-based Boston Organics is also a B Corp. Here’s the link to its score page. Also, Cambridge-based Sundots let BostInno know that they’ve earned a “Pending” B-Corp status, which is no different from a B Corp. certification, but it applies to companies that are less than a year old.

Two solar startups, two food and beverage companies and several asset management firms are part of the list of the B Corp.-certified companies and entities in Boston.

A total of 16 Boston-based corporations met the requirements to be certified between 2008 to 2017. The majority of the companies completed the process in 2013 or 2014.

Administered by non-profit organization B Lab, B Corp. is a certification for for-profit businesses that have committed to meeting rigorous environmental and social standards. The process of getting certified requires at least six steps, including taking the B Impact Assessment, which assesses the overall impact of your company on its stakeholders.

“We decided it was important for us to share that we care about more than just the bottom dollar – that we care about people and planet as well,” Rachel Murray, co-founder of She Geeks Out, one of the companies on the list, wrote in an email. “We also wanted to be a part of a community of other businesses that feel similarly.”

“Much of it is about creating guidelines and best practices and sticking by them.”

Murray also shared some of the methods her company deploys to meet the standards. “Much of it is about creating guidelines and best practices and sticking by them. Whether it’s establishing an environmental policy or publicly committing to creating an inclusive environment welcoming of diverse backgrounds and experiences, these are living documents that guide our business practices.”
