B CORP(™) CERTIFICATION
Simply put, B Corp(™) is a community of businesses that believe in balancing purpose and profit - a belief in making a positive impact and being a benefit to society.
In 2020, Vivobarefoot became a certified B Corp with a score of 98.8, roughly 5% above the average score for B Corp(™) businesses, but a below Patagonia (we like them), who have a with a leading score of 116.
‘Average’ isn’t going to move the dial. Making more sustainable shoes out of more sustainable materials to minimise negative impact isn’t going to cut it either. That’s why our starting point isn’t shoe-making at all.
It is bare-foot-wear; scientifically proven to regenerate and restore our health.
While we have a serious amount of work to do to make our business regenerative for people and planet we know our starting point - our shoes - already are.
