DAPROIM AFRICA recognized as a “Best For The World” B Corp for exceptional community impact in AFRICA
NAIROBI, KENYA, 2019 — DAPROIM AFRICA, a Certified B Corporation, has been named a Best For The World honoree in recognition of their significant positive impact on their community and for how they’ve built this level of care for their community into their business model.
Ranking in the top 10 percent of all 3,000 B Corps for their positive impact on their community, DAPROIM AFRICA earned this honor because of their exemplary supplier relations and involvement in their local community of NAIROBI, KENYA. DAPROIM AFRICA was also assessed on their practices and policies around community service and charitable giving, including whether their product or service is designed to solve a social issue, such as access to basic services, health, education, economic opportunity, and the arts. DAPROIM AFRICA made this Best For The World list thanks to exceptional practices like improving livelihoods of disadvantaged graduates through active engagement in the formal economy and increased Impact Sourcing employment opportunities for the youth through improved sustainability.

Best For The World recognition is administered by B Lab, the global nonprofit that certifies and supports Certified B Corporations, which are for-profit companies dedicated to using business as a force for good. Today there are 3,000 Certified B Corporations across 64 countries and 150 industries, unified by one common goal: to redefine success in business.
B Corps meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corp Certification doesn’t just evaluate a product or service, it assesses the overall positive impact of the company that stands behind it—like DAPROIM AFRICA. Using the B Impact Assessment, B Lab evaluates how a company’s operations and business model impact its workers, community, environment, and customers. To achieve the B Corp Certification, a company must achieve a score of at least 80 points on the assessment.
“We’re incredibly proud of this year’s Best For The World honorees,” says Anthea Kelsick, Chief Marketing Officer of B Lab. “These inspiring companies represent the kinds of business models and impact-driven business strategies that are building a new economy—one that is inclusive, regenerative, and delivers value to all stakeholders, not just shareholders. To that end, B Corps like DAPROIM AFRICA are redefining capitalism and showing that it actually can work for everyone.”
1,000 B Corps from 44 countries were named to 2019 Best For The World lists, including Patagonia, Beautycounter, Dr. Bronner’s, TOMS, Seventh Generation, and Greyston Bakery. The 2019 Best For The World honorees are determined based on the verified B Impact Assessments of Certified B Corporations. The full lists are available on https://bcorporation.net/.
