Certified B Corporation
Toronto, ON (October 3, 2023) - We are happy to announce Sustento Inc. is now a Certified B Corporation! Sustento Inc. creates sustainable and nutritious pet food and treats under the brand, HOPE Pet Food and grocery-exclusive brand; SNÜF Natural Pet Food.
For the past year, our team has been working to achieve this major certification. B Corporations are businesses that demonstrate the highest standards of social and environmental performance, as well as transparency about their business practices.
With B Corp certification, we demonstrate our commitment to social and environmental responsibility. Every B corp needs to undergo recertification every three years, leading to continuous improvement.
To achieve this certification, The B Lab evaluates how a company's business model and operations impact its workers, community, environment and customers. The B Impact Assessment asks questions about diversity, employee benefits, supply chain practices and more. Companies must score at least 80 out of 200 to achieve this status.
B corp certification is an incredible milestone reaffirming Sustento Inc.'s commitment to our mission of creating more sustainable and nutritious pet food. We care passionately about pets, people and our planet, similar to the B Corp community. Sustento Inc. is devoted to contributing to the outcome envisioned by B corp; a world where businesses help transform the economy to make it more sustainable and humane.
