WHAT IS A BENEFIT CORPORATION?
A Benefit Corporation is a business designation designed for for-profit entities that want to consider society and the environment in addition to profits in their decision-making.
When we became a Benefit Corporation, we amended our corporate charter to lay out specific goals and commitments toward feeding communities, advancing human rights, and protecting the planet, including investing at least 20% of profits in these causes.
Benefit corporations differ from traditional businesses in their purpose, accountability, and transparency requirements.
Good Start Packaging is excited to join a very small but growing list of forward-thinking organizations — like Patagonia and Warby Parker — that have become Benefit Corporations. More and more voices are rejecting the pursuit of profit above all, and we’re devoted to being among those taking a stand.
To all of our amazing clients who have helped us reach this milestone, we’re excited to keep working with you, helping you grow sustainable, successful businesses.
