Local Philadelphia businesses Homecare and Associates and Re:Vision Architecture have ranked among the B Corp “Best for the World 2014” list for overall impact. The list recognizes companies creating the most impact for a better world.

Home Care Associates of Philadelphia (HCA) provides quality home care jobs and works to ensure quality care across the Philadelphia metropolitan area for elders and people with disabilities. Re:Vision Architecture is an architecture, planning, and consulting firm which specializes in sustainable design and development.

Nearly 1,000 businesses throughout the world are currently B Corporations. These businesses are certified by the nonprofit B Lab (based in Wayne, PA) to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency.

In order to be included on the “Best of the World” list, businesses must score in the 10 percent on the B Impact Assessment, a comprehensive assessment of a company’s impact on its workers, community and the environment. The assessment is part of a a three-step process businesses must complete to become a certified B Corp. They must score an 80 out 200 on the assessment, meet legal requirements and then make it official by signing the B Corp Declaration of Interdependence and Term Sheet.

Seeds Printing, a green printing business based in Pittsburgh, was the only other B Corporation in Pennsylvania to make the list.
