Becoming a B-Corp

4RBees is in the process of becoming a Certified B-Corp not just a Bee Corp.
What Are Certified B Corps?
Society’s most challenging problems cannot be solved by government and nonprofits alone. B Corps are for-profit companies that use the power of business to build a more inclusive, equitable, and sustainable economy for all people and the planet. This small but growing community is accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business.
Purpose-driven, a B-Corps goal is to create benefit for all stakeholders, not just shareholders, while meeting the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability.
B Corp certification is one of the only certifications that’s not for a product or service, but for the company as a whole, which helps consumers identify companies with a mission that aligns with their values.
How We Will Become a B Corp
B Lab is the independent nonprofit that certifies companies as B Corps. Before any company becomes a B Corp, they must complete the B Impact Assessment, which requires them to document their positive impact so B Lab can assess the overall impact a company has on its workers, suppliers, community, and the environment. In order to maintain B Corp status, this rigorous certification process must be completed every three years.
 
Why B Corps Matter
The B Corp community works toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of high-quality jobs. In fact, B Corps amend their governance so that, by law, they can make decisions and implement practices that consider not just shareholder value, but the impact on all stakeholders including employees, customers, society, and the environment.
We Will Also Become A Public Benefit Corporation
Certified B Corporations (B-Corps) and Public Benefit Corporations (PBCs) have a lot in common, which is why they’re often, and understandably, confused. However, there are some important differences as well.
The B-Corp Certification is a third-party certification administered by the nonprofit B Lab, based in part on a company’s verified performance on the B Impact Assessment.
A PBC is a legal structure for business, like an LLC or corporation, which means the company is legally empowered to pursue positive stakeholder impact alongside profit.
Some companies, like 4ocean, are both Certified B Corps and Public Benefit Corporations, which means that they prioritize their impact on the public and planet over generating revenue.
4Rbees Will Remain Committed To Our Mission
As both a Certified B-Corp and Public Benefit Corporation, we will remain committed to our mission of Saving Bees World-Wide. You can expect us to continue:
            
  • Placing PureWave PMF Cells in beehives everywhere with your generous help.
  • Educating people about the bee population crisis and empowering them to live a more bee-friendly lifestyle by ending their reliance on chemicals and pesticides and increasing wildflower forage in their local communities.
  • Advocating for bee-friendly legislation that improves waste management infrastructure and stops the cycle of overproduction and over consumption of chemicals and pesticides that contributes to bee population declines.
  • Recruiting Bee Rescue Teams around the world to identify struggling bee farmers and small organic honey producers that could benefit from our technology.
  • Investing in research and new technologies and solutions that will strengthen and empower bee colonies, which is how we transform the honey production industry into bringing forth new and healthier products.
  • Creating jobs that reduce inequality, decrease poverty, strengthen our communities, and give ordinary people dignity and purpose.
  • Offsetting our carbon footprint and operating as a climate positive business.
  • Exploring new and innovative ideas that will continue to increase our impact
 
We’re incredibly proud in our pursuit of becoming a B-Corp and you should be, too. Every product you purchase and every bee you save helps us advance our mission in countless ways and this certification will be as much your achievement as it is ours. Together, we can end this life threatening crisis.

I'm so happy someone has finally developed a technology that actually saves bees and a project that I can easily be a part of. I love that I'm helping the bees and actually making a positive impact for the planet. The healthy rewards are bonus. I love it!

The Wildflower Planting Parties are so worthwhile. I never realized that the biggest problem bees face is finding enough proper food. It's now easy for us all to change that. Thanks guys.

Best lip balm I've ever used. I usually buy mine at health stores because drugstore stuff is horrible. The PureWave Lip Balm goes on light and clean and disappears like it's not even there but my lips stay soft all day and I actually use a lot less.

Resonance is a powerful thing. Brent and Jake's breakthrough technology is saving bees and creating wonderful energetic products while bringing people together to provide more organic biodiversity for all wildlife.

Well done guys!

This is crazy. I tried to remove the PureWave Cell from my beehive and they really got angry with me. I had to put it back in to settle them down. They're all happy now.
