B Corp certified businesses in the MENA region

B Corp Movement Flourishes in the MENA Region

In today’s evolving landscape, businesses are actively redefining their roles in society. This shift has seen a remarkable rise in Certified B Corporations (B Corps). These companies distinguish themselves through verified social and environmental performance, transparency, and legal accountability, demonstrating their unwavering commitment to balancing purpose with profit.

We celebrate this B Corp Month by highlighting the noteworthy growth of the B Corp movement in the MENA region. As businesses increasingly prioritize social and environmental responsibility, the region has witnessed a significant surge in B Corp certifications. Back in 2020, the region only had one B Corp certified company. Today, this number has risen to 15, showcasing the remarkable progress and flourishing community built around responsible business practices within the region. These exemplary companies are setting new standards for responsible business, proving that profitability can seamlessly align with a strong sense of purpose.
