Since February 2020 Vamos became a B Corp. Short for Benefit Corporation, B Corps are leaders of the global movement of people using business as a force for good.
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. It’s a community of leaders, driving a global movement of people using business as a force for good.
B Corps are change makers that use the power of business to build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.
We believe we must work together to reduce inequality, lower poverty rates, create healthier environments and strengthen communities. We can do this in part by the creation of more high-quality jobs that provide both dignity and purpose. By harnessing the power of business, we can use profits and growth as a means to have greater, more positive impacts in the lives of our employees, communities, and the environment.
The B-Corp website:
From Certified B Corporations meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. It’s like Fair Trade certification but for the whole business, not just a bag of coffee.
B Corp certification is the only certification available that looks beyond product or service model standards, but evaluates absolutely all dimensions of a business.
As a purpose-driven business it felt natural for our team to join the B Corporation movement. We stand for positive impact travel and take every measure to ensure the trips we plan are in line with our ethical values. One of our main goals as a company is to help create a strong incentive to preserve the remaining natural and cultural heritage in our region. We want to communicate our journey towards responsible travel with honesty and transparency. Our mission is to ensure we have as much of a positive impact as possible, and this mission is never-ending. We’re constantly taking steps to increase the positive impacts of our business and to minimize the negatives.
To keep this highly selective status as a B Corps certified business, we will undergo re-verification every three years. We are motivated to keep improving our business and keep documenting our strides forward. B Corps set the gold standard for good business. Through our services, practices and profits, we at Vamos Expeditions are committed to improving the lives of all our employees, our partners and travelers. We understand that we are all dependent upon one another and thus, responsible for not only each other today, but our future generations too.
