Ursa Major is B Corp Certified
We are proud to join over 3,300 businesses across 71 countries that have committed to redefine success beyond financial goals and use business to make a positive impact on people and planet. Major!
What’s a B Corp?
B Corps are mission-driven companies that go above and beyond profit and use business as a force for good. It’s the gold standard for corporate and social responsibility assessing everything from a company’s employees, suppliers, community and environmental impact.
Why B Corp Matters
How we treat our co-workers, customers, community and environment is just as important as how we treat our skin. Earning a B Corp certification allows us to quantify and track our sustainability progress, while learning from an inspiring network of B Corp brands working to do the same.
How did Ursa Major Become Certified?
To earn a B Corp certification, businesses must complete a rigorous assessment evaluating how they support their workers, empower communities, protect the environment and govern themselves. Each business must qualify for at least 80 of 200+ total points (a typical company that is not B Corp usually scores around 50) and sign the B Corp Declaration of Interdependence.
Highlights from Across Our Business
- All of our products use only healthy ingredients keeping your skincare routine and our waterways clean.
- All full-time employees have stock in the company. We believe this enables and inspires a more meaningful relationship with our work.
- When we’re not working from home, our company headquarters are 100% carbon-neutral.
- All Ursa Major employees participate in a volunteer program aimed at giving back to our community and surroundings. Our goal is to dedicate 20 hours per employee each year.
So, What’s Next?
Joining the B Corp community is only the beginning. Each year, we are obligated (and excited!) to maintain or improve our score while committing to educate our community, elevate how we do business, and hopefully inspire others to do the same. Stay tuned for our annual progress report and company updates along the way.
