Sonen’s Sixth, Best for the World, B Corp Honor
Recently, Sonen Capital received the 2022 Best for the World: Customers recognition from B Lab. Every year, Best for the World recognizes Certified B Corporations (B Corps) with exceptional positive impact. Best For the World identifies the B Corps whose B Impact Scores in the five impact areas evaluated in the B Impact Assessment – Community, Customers, Environment, Governance, and Workers – rank in the top 5% of all B Corps.
Sonen’s vision is to be the trusted partner of choice for asset owners seeking investment solutions that address the world’s most pressing challenges, and this honor highlights our alignment. B Corp describes the Best for the World: Customer’s recognition as businesses that “set the standard for serving their customers. By providing critical services like education, healthcare, and finance management, they add value to customers’ lives while supporting the greater good.”
