PORTLAND, Ore. – Lazarus Naturals, a mission-driven leader in the CBD category, today announced their B Corporation certification. As one of only a handful of CBD companies that are Certified B Corporations, Lazarus Naturals is proud to join the global movement of 4,000 B Corps across 150 different industries and 74 countries with one unifying goal: to redefine success in business.
“Our mission is to provide high-quality, effective, and affordable CBD for anyone who needs it and this commitment has driven all our business decisions,” says CEO and Founder Sequoia Price-Lazarus. “Even though we are in the unregulated CBD industry, we continue to set a high standard for conscientious and ethical business practices that use business as a force for good.”
Certified B Corporations (B Corps) are for-profit companies that use the power of business to build an inclusive and sustainable economy. B Corps are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on customers, workers, communities, and the environment. These criteria align with Lazarus Naturals’ socially conscious founding principles of CBD that’s made to work and made for all.
“Lazarus Naturals is an exciting addition to our B Corp community, given the company’s pioneering role within the industry and its loyal customer base,” said Lindsey Wilson, Manager for Business Development for B Lab US & Canada.
To achieve B Corp Certification, companies meet credible, comprehensive, transparent and independent standards. The rigorous assessment to obtain B Corp certification measured impact areas such as Governance, Workers, Community, Environment, and Customers.
As Lazarus Naturals looks ahead, it will continue its commitment to make its CBD widely available to all, support its communities and grow responsibly. The company remains deeply committed to sustainability — even recently earning USDA Organic Certification.
