West Paw Wins Best for the World for fourth consecutive year!
Creating Most Positive Environmental Impact
September 2017: West Paw is honored in the Best for the Environment list for the 4th consecutive year. We are among businesses that earned an Environment score in the top 10 percent of more than 2,100 Certified B Corporations on the B Impact Assessment. The full assessment measures a company's impact on its workers, community, customers and the environment. To certify as B Corporations, companies like West Paw must complete the full assessment and have their answers verified by B Lab.
The Environment portion of the B Impact Assessment evaluates a company’s environmental performance through its facilities, materials, emissions, and resource and energy use. Companies answer questions about their transportation/distribution channels and the environmental impact of their supply chain. The assessment also measures whether a company’s products or services are designed to solve an environmental issue, including products that aid in the provision of renewable energy, conserve resources, reduce waste, promote land/wildlife conservation, prevent toxic/hazardous substance or pollution, or educate, measure or consult to solve environmental problems. Honorees scoring in the top 10 percent set a gold standard for the high impact that business as a force for good can make on nature around the world. West Paw made the list thanks to exceptional practices like sustainable manufacturing, having a closed-loop recycling program, and using eco-friendly materials in their products.
