Eco-Products has announced that it has been recertified as a B Corporation, once again achieving the distinction for meeting “high standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency.” This is the third time the company has gone through the rigorous certification and verification process.
To achieve this distinction, Eco-Products met score requirements of the B Impact Assessment, which rates business factors such as employee benefits, civic engagement, DE&I initiatives, product environmental benefits and the impacts of business operations.
“We’re proud to once again be distinguished as a Certified B Corporation,” says Ian Jacobson, president of Eco-Products. “We share B Lab’s view that a more inclusive, equitable and regenerative economy is within reach, and are excited to continue the work required to help get us there.”
According to B Lab, the nonprofit organization that assesses and certifies companies as B Corps, they are required to undergo the verification process every three years, keeping them focused on continuous improvement, notes
Eco-Products has taken a number of steps as a B Corporation, including:
Providing a growing number of high-quality, innovative products with meaningful environmental benefits made from renewable resources and post-consumer recycled content.
Thoroughly engaging with composting systems and stakeholders in the communities we serve to support the diversion of organics from landfills.
Publishing an annual impact report that tracks social and environmental metrics and discloses progress on goals from across the organization.
Working toward a more equitable and inclusive workplace for employees.
Donating to environmental causes and organizations, especially those working to expand compost infrastructure.
Installing solar panels at its headquarters and producing nearly twice as much electricity as what was consumed in the building in 2022.

Among its partners are professional sports teams like the Minnesota Twins and Portland Trail Blazers, venues like Red Rocks Amphitheatre and campuses like the University of Colorado at Boulder.
