What this means for our clients?
Our B Corp certification shows to our clients and partners that they can trust Sycous to provide products and solutions in an ethical manner. Compared to alternative sustainability accreditations, B Corp certification is a rigours process and considers documentation of a company’s business model, information about operations, structure, work processes as well as review of potential public complaints and possible site visits. This matched with need for maintaining our B Corp certification by re-certifying every 3 years ensures to our clients and partners that Sycous are conducting business operations in the correct way.
