The first decision we made was to legally register Kozm as a CA Benefit Corporation. We are committed to holding ourselves to B Corp standards. This provides us a framework to make sure we’re always doing things in a way that is better for our workers, our community and the environment. And within the first year of being in business, we met our goal of becoming a Certified B Corp™. Unlike traditional corporations, Certified B Corporations® are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions not only on their shareholders, but also on their stakeholders (e.g., workers, suppliers, community, consumers, and the environment).
We bank with Amalgamated Bank, a triple bottom line bank that invests in businesses and nonprofits that benefit communities and preserve our planet.
A different way hopefully foments a different outcome. We started Kozm because we believe business can be a powerful instrument for change. If you’ve read this far, chances are you feel the same.
Here’s to doing business as unusual so it becomes the usual.
