Ecoalf improves B Corp Score and is at the top of the European fashion market

In 2018, sustainable fashion brand Ecoalf became the first Spanish fashion brand to receive B Corp certification with an impact score of 81.8. Just three years later, the company improved its total score to 99.1, leading the European fashion market.

B Corp certification means that companies must meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance. They must also ensure public transparency and legal accountability to strike a balance between profit and the purpose for which the company was established.

“We are constantly innovating to develop collections that are increasingly environmentally friendly. It’s not just about what we do, but how we do it … because there is no Planet B,” said Carol Blázquez, Ecoalf’s head of innovation and sustainability , in a press release.

Five Core Areas of B Corp Certification

B Corp certified companies are reassessed every three years in five key areas: general governance, ethics, accountability and transparency; the Company’s contribution to the financial, physical, professional and social well-being of its employees or to the economic and social well-being of the communities in which it operates; its overall environmental management with regard to climate, water use and sustainability; and the value a company delivers to its customer base, for example through positive marketing and quality assurance.

“Each of these areas is an important factor in not being the biggest fashion brand in the world, but the best for the planet,” says Ecoalf.

This not only places Ecoalf in the top ten of B Corp certified companies, but also places the company at the forefront of the European fashion industry in terms of sustainability efforts.
