B-Corporation Best for the World™ 2021
Patients Know Best retains the title as ‘Best for The World Honouree’ 2021 as awarded by the B Corporation.
PKB recognised as a top 5% company for Governance
At Patients Know Best we are beyond happy and incredibly proud about being recognised as one of the Best for the World™ B Corps of 2021, retaining this title from both 2019 and 2018 (following the 2020 pause). The Best for the World are B Corps whose scores in one or more of the five impact areas assessed towards the certification reach the top 5% of all B Corps worldwide. At Patients Know Best we have again been recognised for our efforts in the Governance area.
Continuing as a force for social good
As all B Corps are already businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose, this is a recognition that makes us incredibly proud! Our best practices in this area allow us to embody what it means to use business as a force for good.
Using Patients Know Best as a force for social good is central to our values and mission. To recognise our ambitions as an innovative social enterprise that empowers patients and joins up healthcare information, we became a Certified B Corporation in September 2015. As a certified B Corporation, we remain committed to leading innovation in health-tech with a clear social purpose. Sustainability is at the heart of our ambitions because we believe that by using PKB as a force for social good, we can have a positive and lasting impact on our employees, community, customers and the environment.
Expanding our focus on sustainability
The world needs every business at its best – creating good jobs, adding value to society and taking responsibility for the environmental impact. As a B Corp company, we’re proud of our contribution to that mission.
We look forward to not only continuing as a B Corporation with clear mission and engagement, corporate accountability, high ethical standards and transparency, but to also expand on our environmental and sustainability impact, not just via our product but as a wider company.
Patients Know Best are currently reviewing our company carbon footprint with the intention of committing to the Net Zero 2030 commitment, underpinned by a plan to get us there. As a company our products help others reduce their carbon footprint and now we are looking at what we as a business can do to ensure the environmental sustainability of our business operations.
