S’WELL ANNOUNCES B CORPORATION CERTIFICATION

New York, New York, UNITED STATES


The design company for good continues its commitment to sustainable living ahead of its 10-year anniversary

NEW YORK, March 31, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- S’well, a design company for good, proudly announced its newly earned B Corporation (B Corp) Certification today, furthering the brand’s commitment as a leader in sustainable living. By joining the Certified B Corp community, S’well becomes part of a global movement of for-profit companies dedicated to using business as a force for good.

“This certification reconfirms the commitment S’well made 10 years ago when we launched with a mission to support the planet and its people,” said Sarah Kauss, Founder. “By certifying as a B Corp, we have met the highest levels of verified social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability. S’well is committed to creating even more impact in the years to come through the products and services we create, the programs we launch and the people with whom we work.”

B Corp is made up of over 3,000 businesses in over 70 countries, across 150 industries inspiring tens of thousands of other companies to follow their lead by measuring their impact, changing their corporate structure, and building better businesses. Unlike traditional corporations, B Corps are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on all stakeholders: customers, workers, communities, and the environment.

"We are thrilled to welcome S’well to our community of Certified B Corporations who are redefining success in business to balance both profit and purpose," said Andy Fyfe, Senior Manager, B Corp Growth & Activation. "S’well’s move to certify as a B Corp is more than a stamp of approval for their pre-existing mission and programming, but ensures the company will continue to move the needle forward in partnership with their now fellow B Corps on even more exciting initiatives in the near future.”
