Why We Are A Benefit Corporation

October 20, 2020

Savhera exists to create dignified employment for trafficking survivors by providing values-conscious consumers with premium aromatherapy products and essential oils.

Every component of our daily operations is rooted in this mission and our values of dignity, integrity, and excellence. Organic products that are good for the earth and body. Check. Transparent product information. Check. Honest and creative marketing. Check. Trauma-informed work environments where all employees are valued stakeholders. Again, check.

These and other values-driven aspects of our company culture are cemented further by our incorporation as a public benefit corporation and our pending status as a Certified B Corp.

Why We’re a Public Benefit Corporation

A public benefit corporation (“PBC”) is a new corporate structure, now available in a majority of states, which allows organizations like Savhera to identify a purpose beyond profit.

Incorporation as a PBC allows a for-profit company to wed business with justice, profit with purpose, and keeps the mission at the forefront of all corporate decisions.

For Savhera, this means keeping our brave survivor-employees and their dignified employment at the center of our strategic business choices, now and into the future for all of our investors, directors, and executives.

Why We’re a Certified B Corp (Pending)

We also have pending status as a Certified B Corp. This certification by B Lab involves a rigorous third-party assessment measuring a company’s social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.

Certified B Corps are businesses that meet high standards in these areas and balance profit and purpose. The more than 3,500 B Corps in 70 countries and 150 industries are creating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and shape a more sustainable economy.

Savhera has pending B Corp certification, a classification for early-stage startups like our company which are on track for certification but do not yet have a long enough operating history for full certification. As a member of this community, we are part of the global movement to use business as a force for good as we create new beginnings in every bottle!

Every purchase you make of Savhera products directly contributes to these new beginnings and combats human trafficking by creating dignified employment for our amazing survivor-colleagues.

Join us in creating a world where dignity is diffused in every home and workplace!
