B Corporation™

Certified B Corporation™

Certified B Corporations meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability. It is this combination that helps certified B Corporations build trust and value. Certification is administered by the non-profit B Lab organisation and follows a rigorous assessment that evaluates how a company’s operations and business model impact its employees, customers, suppliers, community and environment.

Investindustrial was one of the first private equity firms to be B Corp certified in 2020, achieving the highest certification score of any private equity buyout firm (116.2). Since then, the Firm has actively used the B Impact Assessment as a framework to inspire and catalogue improvements, which are reflected in its annual B Impact Assessment scores.

In 2021 and 2022, the Firm was recognised ‘Best for the World’ by B Corp for its performance in Governance, scoring amongst the global top 5% for this impact category. This is in recognition of the Firm's relentless focus on sustainability and its approach to Building Better Companies.
