Better Places has become the first Dutch travel organisation (and one of very few worldwide) to become a Certified B Corporation. With this accreditation, Better Places joins the international movement of sustainable companies, proving that successful entrepreneurship and making a positive contribution to the world can go hand in hand.
B Corp is an international network of Benefit Corporations, a global community of successful commercial companies committed to a better world. The American organisation B Lab awards the certificate to companies with a positive social and ecological impact, who take responsibility, are transparent and who contribute to the economy of the future. Better Places is the first travel organisation in the Netherlands that has been awarded this certificate.
Saskia Griep, founder and director of Better Places: “We are extremely proud of our B Corp certification. With Better Places we want to be a frontrunner in sustainable entrepreneurship in the travel industry. We are convinced that our way of working has a positive impact on travellers, suppliers, employees and the environment. Through the B Corp certification, sustainability and transparency are embedded in our business operations, whereby we can demonstrate our ambition for sustainability in the broadest sense of the word and be an example for others”.
