Why did Panarchy Partners become a B Corp?
Many companies are now talking about ‘purpose’ and their ‘mission’ but few are able to demonstrate how they do it and be independently verified. This rigorous process provided us with some soul searching where we looked at our working practices, how we create impact through The Global Panvest® Fund and the Panarchy Foundation, while bringing value to all of our stakeholders. It has also created a deeper sense of belonging within the team who are proud to join the ranks of companies such as Patagonia, Natura, Danone and Ben and Jerry’s (the last two we own in our portfolio).
It also signals to our panvestments that we are serious about our mission and gives us a better understanding of what our panvestments need to do to become B Corp Certified. Danone, for example, has committed to have all of its subsidiaries B Corp Certified by 2030.
