OneSeventeen Media, Inc. has been recognized for creating the most positive overall social and environmental impact by the nonprofit B Lab with the release of the Fourth Annual ‘B Corp Best For The World’ list.

The ‘B Corp Best For The World’ list honors businesses that earned an overall score in the top 10% of more than 1,200 Certified B Corporations from over 120 industries on the B Impact Assessment, a rigorous and comprehensive assessment of a company's impact on its workers, community, and the environment. Honorees were recognized among micro, small, and mid-sized businesses around the globe.

“I was sitting in the offices of a strategic partner located in Mill Valley, CA. when I noticed Ode Magazine featuring a story on B Lab and their new B Corp certification. As I read the article I realized this was exactly what we had been looking for – a way to quantify our social mission as a for profit business. I applied the next day and a short four weeks later we were certified as Texas’ first B Corp in February 2009. Winning this award is the culmination of something that began over six years ago. I feel we should be giving B Lab the award because they have created something so valuable for so many around the world.”

“All of us here at OneSeventeen Media are humbled and honored to have been selected as one of B Corp’s “Best For The World” companies. To our way of thinking, we’re just working at what we’re all passionate about – helping kids see their value so that they can revel in who they are. Along the way our passion has become what we stand for as a company. Making the impossible possible. If that helps make the world a better place, then we’re all over it!”
