Woohoo! ELSK is a B-corp certified company!

And what exactly does that mean?
It means a lot to us – and hopefully something to you!

Because if you are part of B-corp, it is a sign that you are running a business where it is about much more than just creating profit and making it as big as possible.
In short, as a B-corp you must not only want to be the best in the world, but the best FOR the world. You enter into a legal obligation to create sustainable and positive changes.

B-corp stands for Benefit Cooperation. It is a certification that does not just look at the company's individual products, but the company as a whole.

And it's not just a certification – it's a certification with points! We at ELSK have achieved a score of 99.50.

As a company, it is about how you can ensure that you treat the planet with care, engage positively in society and use your company to do good and not just maximize your profit. A focus is also on treating both your employees and your value chain properly.

And precisely orderliness is a key word for us.

What is B-Corp?

B-Corporations, or B-Corps, are companies committed to pursuing both sustainable and social goals, driven by a purpose to make a positive difference in the world.

B Corp companies are subject to a number of strict requirements to maintain their certification, including sustainability, social responsibility and corporate governance requirements.
For us, this means that we not only strive to deliver on the bottom line, but that we work to make a positive difference in the world. B-Corp certification is an indicator that a company pursues higher standards of social responsibility and sustainability.

Here's why you should consider shopping with companies with this certification:

Social responsibility
B-Corp certified companies commit to taking responsibility for their actions, giving consumers confidence that they are dealing with a company that contributes positively to society.

B-Corps are committed to being open about their social and environmental performance, empowering consumers to make informed choices.

Companies that are B-Corp certified work actively to reduce their environmental impact and often use sustainable materials and production methods.

Working conditions
B-Corps takes responsibility for working conditions in its supply chain and works to ensure fair and safe conditions for workers.

Long-term commitment
B-Corps are committed to thinking long-term and working for a sustainable business model that will last for many years.

Consumer influence
By supporting B-Corp certified companies, you as a consumer can contribute to promoting more responsible and sustainable business practices.

We look forward to continuing our journey towards a more responsible fashion industry. Our B-Corp certification is not just a sticker; it is a commitment to take responsibility and do our part to create a better world. Together with our dedicated customers and partners, we will continue to make fashion more meaningful, sustainable and socially oriented.

So the next time you are considering where to shop, you can choose companies with B-Corp certification with a clear conscience, knowing that your purchase is supporting a company that is trying to minimize their negative footprint on the planet.

The current economic system prioritizes short-term gains over long-term value - me over us - now over the future - inequality over justice - profit over people and the planet.

But it doesn't have to be that way. Led by B Lab and Sistema B, the B Corp movement is positively impacting nearly 500,000 workers in over 6,000 companies in over 150 industries and 89 countries.

ELSK is proud to be a part of this.
