Inclusive Trade is delighted to announce that we are now a Certified B Corporation ® as of November 2021.
"So what are B Corps™ ?
Certified B Corporations ® (B Corps™) are for-profit companies that use the power of business to build a more inclusive and sustainable economy. They meet the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability."
With this certification, we join the global community of 4,000 B Corps in 70 countries and 150 industries, together, solving the world’s biggest environmental and social challenges.
We wanted to certify as a B Corp, because B Labs' vision for change is aligned to our own core identity and we believe that together, as part of the B Corp Movement ™, we can achieve an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economic system for all people and the planet.
3 years ago, in 2018, we started building a concept with the belief that each one of us as consumers, could create positive impact through thoughtful purchasing. We put our concept to test through a sustainably-first marketplace where consumers could purchase thoughtfully curated products from around the world made by vetted #artisans #MSMEs and learn to #shopbyimpact!
The process of committing to and achieving the B Impact Assessment ™ has been transformative and empowering for Inclusive Trade. It has reaffirmed our core beliefs, connected us with a community of like-minded individuals and organisations all over the world and strengthened our own mechanisms for capturing, measuring and enabling positive social, environmental and economic impacts globally.

We look forward to updating all our beneficiaries, customers, and partners about our enhanced impact throughout the months, years and decades to come, as our commitment and contribution to transparency reporting and impact measurement benefits business for all.
