High standards at Busch Systems, Barrie result in special B Corporation certification

'A new kind of business that balances purpose and profit'

High marks for a Barrie business.

Busch Systems, which designs and sells waste and recycling systems, has become a Certified B Corporation.

B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.

Only a handful of Barrie businesses (300 country-wide, 3000 world-wide) have achieved the designation.

Busch Systems is leading the way in demonstrating that business can be used to address complex social and environmental issues. They are a testament to the idea that business can be used as a force for good.

“Busch Systems began in the early days of the recycling movement and our desire has always been to support environmental accountability and conscious business choices”, said Busch Systems founder and CEO, Craig Busch. “Becoming a B Corporation reaffirms that commitment and provides an important benchmark for our decisions be it with our products, people or philanthropy efforts.”

Certified B Corporations are a new kind of business that balances purpose and profit. They are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment.
