Rumpl, a leader in technical outdoor blankets, announces its B Corp certification and commitment to values-based business practices.
B Corps are the best in the world at balancing purpose and profit, and over the past year, Rumpl set out to prove itself and join the ranks of other exemplary B Corp-certified companies. The B Corp certification provides companies with a clear roadmap to improvement, ultimately pushing manufacturers to improve their ways of doing business.
Through the process, Rumpl looked closely at its business and products, highlighting areas of excellence and areas for improvement.
“We found the B Corp certification aligned with Rumpl’s commitments and mission, bridging the gap between our operational excellence and the decisions we make that benefit the community and the environment. Becoming a B Corp means more than checking a few boxes – it represents an overall commitment to being a better business, one that has a positive impact on the planet and is good for people,” said Wylie Robinson, CEO and founder of Rumpl.
The B-Corp movement started in 2006 in the United States, with the mission that all companies involved meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency and legal accountability. The certification takes time, effort and transparency. More than 3,000 public and private companies are certified across industries that include manufacturing, apparel, health care, and investment firms.
Through the audit process, Rumpl examined its long view on product durability and sourcing. The brand strengthened its governance and evaluated its human resource programming, which aims to give all employees an equitable environment to grow within a consistent, positive company culture.
