Beachgold sits as Indonesia's first apparel B Corp and third across all industries in the country, joining multinational Danone and Percolate Galactic.
Individually, B Corps meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public and legal accountability and corporate transparency. B Corps are recognised for their work in utilising local and global markets to solve the most pressing challenges faced in their respective industries.
Beachgold is entirely female run and operates as a secondary cooperative as direct employees have been supported in developing their own facilities and have access to interest-free financing for commercial expansion and personal expenses. This has enabled a shared growth model whereby employees receive direct benefit within the expansion of the company.
As a Certified B Corporation, Beachgold believes:
• That we must be the change we seek in the world.
• That all business ought to be conducted as if people and place mattered.
• That, through their products, practices, and profits, businesses should aspire to do no harm, and benefit all.
• To do so requires that we act with the understanding that we are dependent upon another and thus responsible for each other and future generations.
