)-- evox OmniMedia, PBC has been recognized, a second time in as many years, for creating innovative governance structures to protect the mission of our business for the long term. The Best For Governance list is based on an independent, comprehensive assessment administered by the nonprofit B Lab. Honorees are featured on B the Change, the digital Medium publication produced by B Lab, at bthechange.com/bestfortheworld.
evox is honored in the Best For Governance list, which includes businesses that earned a Governance score in the top 10 percent of more than 2,400 Certified B Corporations on the B Impact Assessment. The full assessment measures a company's impact on its workers, community, customers, and the environment.
The Governance portion of the B Impact Assessment evaluates a company’s overall mission, ethics, accountability, and transparency. It measures whether the company has adopted a social or environmental mission, and how it engages its employees, board members, and the community to achieve that mission. B Lab assesses employee access to financial information, customers’ opportunities to provide feedback, and the diversity of the company’s governing bodies. Honorees scoring in the top 10 percent set a gold standard for the high impact that business as a force for good can make around the world.
CEO and founder of evox, Xav Dubois, states, “evox is proud to be in the company of businesses and entrepreneurs who carry and embody the deep understanding that social, environmental, and ploitical change is a long-term commitment. It takes courage and stamina to launch a Benefit Corporation while also standing in the current reality. We are proud to be amongst those businesses who are willing to be on the front line of this movement and honored to be ‘Best For the World in Governance.’”
