Carnegie Becomes a Certified B Corporation

The first textile and wallcovering company to earn B Corp Certification

 
Carnegie Becomes a Certified B

Leading textile manufacturer Carnegie is proud to announce that it has become a Certified B Corporation. B Corp certification is a rigorous third party assessment performed by the nonprofit organization B Lab. Carnegie’s standing in areas such as social and environmental performance were measured and tallied with complete transparency by B Lab.

B Corporations are a new kind of company that uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. It’s like LEED or Fair Trade certification, but for a business, not just a building or a bag of coffee. There are currently more than 950 certified B Corporations in over 32 countries and 60 industries. Carnegie joins such prestigious companies as Patagonia, Seventh Generation, Method, Ben & Jerry’s, Warby Parker, and Etsy.

“Becoming a Certified B Corporation was a natural step for Carnegie,” said Cliff Goldman, president of Carnegie. “We have always believed that our business has a higher social and environmental responsibility beyond simply profit. The well-being of our employees, clients, and planet have always been part of our mission. The B Corp assessment is both documentation and verification of that approach. In addition it provides us a framework to measure our success in these areas against other leaders in a variety of industries.”

“B Lab is excited to have Carnegie on board as a Certified B Corporation,” said Carnegie founder Andrew Kassoy. “The architectural and design industry has a critical impact on the planet and we hope Carnegie will inspire others to join the movement of people using business as a force for good.”

Carnegie believes that the B Corporation movement is perfectly aligned with how progressive businesses will participate in the future world economy; the idea that making money, while making a difference will become the new normal.
