Full Stack Supply Co. (FSSC) and its three brands, Faction Skis, FW Apparel, and United Shapes, are B Corp. Certified, having met high social and environmental performance standards, transparency and accountability.
The “B” in B Corp stands for “Benefit for All,” emphasizing five central stakeholders: workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment.
To become B Corp. Certified, FSSC underwent a rigorous third-party assessment to measure the impact on these five groups, scoring 93.5 points, well above the 80 required to achieve certification. Becoming a part of the B Corp. community means FSSC is actively working towards a more inclusive, equitable and regenerative future.
“Our road to B Corp. Certification started in 2014/15,” said Alex Hoye, co-founder and CEO, Full Stack Supply Co. “Torn by the reality that outdoor recreation and products damage our ecosystems, we came to the conclusion that our collective of people and brands should be harnessed as a powerful platform for positive impact. The B Corp community is an inspiring approach that serves as a multiplier for both companies and individuals to raise awareness and continuous improvement of environmental and social responsibility. We know that the journey is only beginning, for FSSC and our society, and we’ll keep working as a team and culture to improve our impact.”
“The journey doesn’t stop here, we will continue to work as a team towards a more sustainable future,” added Sara Asmoarp, FSSC’s Global Head of Supply Chain and ESG. “We view business as a vehicle to build community, not just profits. We are proud to count ourselves among this group of pioneering businesses that are leading a global movement for an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economy. It’s not just the right thing to do, the fans of our brands recognize the power of the B Corp. Certification, and this milestone builds trust and value.”
Sébastien Chahidi, head of B Corp. Certification (SMEs) and community and educational programs at B Lab Switzerland, said, “Congratulations to Full Stack Supply Co who joined the B Corp Movement! They have demonstrated that beyond their values, their actions towards climate and social action are highly valuable. We are proud to count on the commitment of Full Stack Supply Co to constant improvement and to fostering an inclusive, equitable and regenerative economy.”
