Declaration of Interdependence Sets B Corps Apart
King Arthur Flour “B the Change Race to the Top Award” Recipient
December 29, 2011 Norwich, VT 2011 marked a new declaration by B (Beneficial) Corporations including founding member King Arthur Flour. The unveiling of the Declaration of Interdependence asserts that B Corporations “envision a new sector of the economy which harnesses the power of private enterprise to create public benefit.”
“The significance of the Declaration of Interdependence is a symbolic kick off to create a corporate future bent toward greater good,” says Steve Voigt, King Arthur Flour President & CEO.
The Declaration was initially unveiled at the B Corp Champions Retreat in October where attendees signed their John Hancock on the document. Over 130 individuals from 80 B Corporations attended the three day event.
The declaration wasn’t the only celebration as 60 awards were also given. King Arthur Flour received the B the Change Race to the Top Award “for consistently raising the bar with their Impact Assessment scores.”
“It was a great honor to represent all the employee owners in receiving this award,” says Voigt.
