I am pleased to announce that Expanscience is the 1st pharmaceutical and dermo-cosmetics laboratory in the world to become a "B Corp", an international certification granted to corporations committed to the common good. This major acknowledgement is the result of the commitment and expertise at Expanscience and its brands for the creation of value and contributions to better living in their communities, as we are committed to doing through our Better Living Program.
B Corp is an international certification granted to corporations that promote threefold economic, social and environmental performances and which undergo periodical assessments. But more than just a certification, B Corp is first and foremost a global movement. We are now joining this pioneering community of over 2,000 businesses around the world that share common values and are committed to reinforcing the principle of socially responsible companies.
Being a B Corp means "Not seeking to be the best company in the world, but the best for the world".
So I would like for Expanscience to be a B Corp in order to move toward sustainable profit over time to generate benefits for the Company. Expanscience will modify its company by-laws in the next year to place "extended benefits" at the heart of its corporate purpose. I am convinced that being a B Corp business will be a component in Expanscience’s growth. This certification meets the expectations of our stakeholders, starting with our consumers around the world. This is a new lever for our competitiveness and the creation of value for our company and our brands. Together let's be actors of a better world!

B Corp: certification for international companies, supported by an NGO (B Lab), whose objective is to identify and help expand businesses that include social and environmental objectives in their activities and their business models. The principle of interdependence focuses on making progress not only for the company but also for its entire ecosystem (partners, suppliers and customers). B Corp certification entails an obligation for the certified companies to make progress. B Corp companies undergo reassessment every other year. For further info: https://www.bcorporation.net
