Certified B Corporations are a new type of corporation which uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. B Corp certification is to sustainable business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or what LEED is to green building.
Certified B Corporations are leading a global movement to redefine success in business. By voluntarily meeting higher standards of transparency, accountability, and performance, Certified B Corps are distinguishing themselves in a cluttered marketplace by offering a positive vision of a better way to do business.
In 2015, Urban Mining joined the ranks of companies like The Honest Company, Etsy and Warby Parker, earning our certification as a B Corporation. It’s a tough certification to earn and an acknowledgment of our commitment to social and environmental ethics, transparency and accountability.
As Jacksonville’s very first certified B-Corp, we have the honor of putting Jacksonville on the global map amongst 1577 Certified B Corporations that meet the rigorous standards that measure our company’s impact on employees, suppliers, community and the environment.
Companies in 42 countries representing 130 industries rally around the unified goal of using business as a force for good. We think now is the time, and Jacksonville is the place to integrate the values of the B-Corp movement with the entrepreneurial spirit growing in our community.
Our mission is to continually minimize the impact of human progress on the earth’s natural resources. Together with private businesses, government organizations, schools and community organizations we collect, recycle and refurbish tons of unwanted e-waste.
We maintain the corporate purpose to create a positive impact on society and the environment; considering the impact of corporate decisions not only on shareholders but also on our employees, community, and the environment.
