A West Michigan company is being honored as a Best for the World organization, thanks to its triple-bottom-line commitment.

B Lab has recognized Bazzani Building Co., a designer and builder of high-performance buildings within diverse, urban neighborhoods and a Certified B Corporation, for its commitment to the environment, community and workers.

To make the Best for the World list, Certified B Corporations had to score within the top 10 percent on the B Impact Assessment, which is used to determine B Certification eligibility.

The B Impact Assessment is a rigorous and comprehensive assessment of a company's impact on its workers, community and the environment.

“The Best for the World honorees are recognized for creating the most positive social and environmental impact,” B Lab said.

Based on the B Impact Assessment, Bazzani, which falls in the micro-enterprise category, earned a score of 147.

Companies have to earn a score of between 80 and 200 to be eligible for B certification.

Other Michigan companies that have earned B Corp Certification are Better Way Imports, Buy The Change, Cascade Engineering, Gazelle Sports and Brewery Vivant.
