The topic of conversation at our BCorp Event last night was spreading the B Corp message of being a socially responsible business and to generate a bigger interest in the BCorp movement here in Christchurch. As a founding BCorp in NZ, it was great to see such an interest in what BCorp stands for, a business that cares. Alicia From BCorp Australia spoke about why BCorps matter while Steve our CEO spoke about who Eagle is and where we fit into the BCorp umbrella.
In a world where it seems that for every winner there has to be a loser, B Corp offers businesses a way of putting a stake in the ground and saying, we don’t need to screw every last cent out of a deal or be the cheapest. Rather we should be a good business that cares for its suppliers, customers, and team, as well as looking after it’s wider community.
B Corps, of which Eagle is NZ’s first, are leading a global movement to redefine success in business. By voluntarily meeting higher standards of transparency, accountability, and performance, Certified B Corps are distinguishing themselves in a cluttered marketplace by offering a positive vision of a better way to do business.
It’s time to put not only Christchurch but also New Zealand on the map amongst the big named companies, that we are a country that cares enough to offer a positive vision of a better way to do business. Join the movement with us today!
