Every year, B Lab names socially conscious businesses from all over to its Best for the World list.

The Wayne-based nonprofit that certifies companies as B Corps just announced its 2017 honorees, and Philadelphia companies take up a whopping 16 spots.

B Lab’s methodology for choosing the Best for the World, from its 2016 announcement:

“We highlight the businesses that B Lab has determined have scored in the top 10 percent of all Certified B Corporations on the assessment. Companies that have scored in the top percentiles across a majority of the assessment’s categories, based on company size, are honored as Best for the World Overall, and companies that have scored in the top percentiles in a given category, again based on company size, are honored as Best for the Environment, Best for Community, Best for Workers and Best for Customers.”

Here are the local orgs that made the list, and their categories:

  • Advanced Enviro Systems (Delaware County) — Environment, Overall
  • Dansko (Chester County) — Workers
  • EcoInnovate — Environment
  • Home Care Associates of Philadelphia — Customers, Best for the Long Term, Overall, Workers
