B-CORP, A GLOBAL CHALLENGE

What good is an economy that increases financially but at the same time uses up all the Earth’s resources, encourages individualism, and excludes thousands of people? At Alier, it is clear to us: nothing.

That is why we are acting with a five-year plan focused on innovation to promote a more productive and less polluting industry, to ensure sustainable production methods and to adopt urgent measures to combat climate change and work in line with Agenda 2030 and the challenge of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Our actions demonstrate this, which is why today we are B-Corp, and we are part of the business and social movement that aims to create an inclusive, fair, and regenerative economy to respond to the major social and environmental challenges of today.

In fact, according to B-Impact’s assessment, Alier S.A. has obtained an overall score of 90.4. Considering that the average score of ordinary companies completing the assessment is currently 50.9 points.

We obtained an overall score of 90.4 in the B-Impact evaluation”.

HOW DID WE ACHIEVE THIS?

To obtain this certification we have undergone a rigorous assessment by B Lab®, which measures business impact across 5 thematic areas: Governance, Employees, Customers, Community and Environment. The results are publicly available on the B Lab®  Website.

During the process we had to answer a long list of questions, as well as provide documentation and data verifying our efforts over the years, undergoing a comprehensive assessment of our sustainability with certification and recertification, and making amendments to our legal governance tools.

Once these strategic axes were approved after 2 years and 3 months, our actions spoke for us, positioning us as a transformational company that benefits the global economy, people, and the planet.
