Our featured article for #21 in our series is subtitled “New B Corp Pursues Sustainability and supply chain empowerment.” That means the B Corporation not only pays attention to its own standards, but it favors ‘good for the world’ in establishing its supply chain. Since AMS Fulfillment is an integral part of the supply chain for our valued clients, we are proud to give them not only the value of great service, but also the value of our B Corporation commitment.
According to the Corporate Finance website, “Each stage of a supply chain is essentially a different industry, for example, raw material extraction and manufacturing. The supply chain enables a company to understand others that are involved in each of the stages, and thereby provides some insights on the attractiveness or competitiveness in industries the company might want to enter in the future.”
The B Corp concept of business being ‘good for the world’ is strengthening as business leaders understand the value of considering the environment, the employees and the community, and taking steps for the wellbeing of all.
The following article is about a company, based in Connecticut, that gives value to not only the health and sustainability of its products, but it also gives value to the individuals who supply their products. We hope you enjoy the article.
