Sharesies is a B Corp!

The B Corp™ movement is huge internationally, only gaining momentum in New Zealand within the last few years. Well known international companies like Patagonia, Ben & Jerry’s and Allbirds are B Corps. Whether the B Corp company is big or small, they all have a desire to reduce inequality, lower the levels of poverty, create a healthier environment, and build stronger communities.

Illustration of the 5 facets of a business that get assessed under a B Corp certification: environment, customers, governance, workers, and community.

Here at Sharesies, we’re passionate about being a force for good. We’re making Aotearoa a better place by providing equal access to investing for everyone—whether you have $5 or $500,000.

To become B Corp Certified, we had to meet their rigorous standards of social and environmental performance. It was hard work, but it shows we’re serious about our goals and purpose. It keeps us accountable to you—in the way we work, and the way we believe every business should operate.

Sharesies achieved a minimum verified score on the B Impact Assessment—an assessment of our impact on our workers, our customers, the community, and the environment.

We’re happy to be part of the B Corp family, but we also know that there’s a lot more that we can be doing. Watch this space!
