Since the business was started in 2012, Veramed has always stood for being better in every sense of the word. Our company culture is based on our values of integrity, collaboration and excellence, and this already runs through every business decision that we make.
As the business continues to grow and flourish, we want to ensure that we do not lose sight of our values. It’s also important to us that our work, contributing to the development of treatments that will improve healthy populations, has context and that social and environmental factors drive the business in the right direction.
But why take this one step further and seek accreditation? There are many benefits for our employees, our customers and the wider social environment in which we operate:
We are independently assessed – there’s no greenwash.
Many companies say they are sustainable or ethical and may be selective on how they substantiate that claim. B Corps(TM) are rigorously assessed every three years. Impacts are assessed and scored, and verification documents required to support our answers.
All B Corps™ are assessed publicly and anyone can review our points breakdown on the B Corporation® website. Our annual impact report also provides a detailed breakdown of social and environmental impacts.
We’re continually improving
B Corps™ re-certify every three years with an entirely new assessment. Between certifications we have strategic plans in place to improve our social and environmental impact so that we improve our score with every re-certification.
