Skans Receives Certified B Corporation Status

Skans, a pioneering eyewear brand known for its commitment to sustainability, recently announced that they are now a Certified B Corporation, meaning that SKANS meet high standards of social and environmental impact. As the first eyewear brand in the Nordics to be B Corp certified, Skans is part of setting a new industry standard for ethical and sustainable business practices. Along with Karün, Sea2See, and leading companies from other industries such as Patagonia, Ganni, Rituals and more.

“Becoming a certified B Corporation is a milestone for Skans. It’s a testament to our dedication to creating a positive impact through our business, and it’s a great tool to push ourselves to seek unwalked paths” said Johanna Skans, Founder of Skans.

Being a Certified B Corp indicates a legal obligation and commitment to use business as a force for good and to create benefit for all stakeholders; workers, communities, customers and our planet. Being a B Corp is about striving not only to be the best in the world but the best FOR the world. B Corp is a comprehensive certification conducted by the non-profit organisation B Lab, that evaluates the entire company, not just the products.

“For us, it’s about ensuring we treat the planet with respect, make a positive impact in our community, and that we are responsible for each other and for future generations. We believe that we must be the change we desire to see in the world, so to pursue a B Corp certification was an obvious step to demonstrate our commitment to this belief,” Johanna Skans says.
