Hershey Cause is honored to be chosen as a ‘Best for the Community’ leader in B Lab/B Corporation’s first ‘Best for the World’ list of the most socially and environmentally responsible businesses. Hershey Cause was recognized with a score two-times higher than the average score of the 2,000 other noted B Corporation businesses, putting Hershey Cause in the top 10% of all Certified B Corporations.
Corporations must complete an extensive independent assessment analyzing social and environmental corporate impacts in order to become a Certified B Corporation. Dedicated to meeting the collective call to action, B Corporations meet higher standards of accountability, transparency and social and environmental performance.
