Proud to be a certified B Corp
RLI is proud to be one of the first ever B Corporations in the State of Colorado, and to have been honored as "Best for the World" in creating positive impact around the world. Recognized by B the Change Media for our leadership, RLI is among the cutting edge of a global movement using business as a force for good. B Corporations like the Restorative Leadership Institute meet what Inc. Magazine calls "the highest standard in socially responsible business."
Together with companions like Patagonia, Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream, Dansko, Hootsuite and Seventh Generation, we believe that business must do no harm and benefit the whole of Life. The systemic challenges of the 21st century require using our influence for positive change, and the B Corp movement offers the breakthrough potential to leverage the power of business to chart a sustainable future for all.

To be certified as a B Corp, a company must meet exceptional standards of social and environmental performance measures, transparency and legal accountability. The global B Impact Assessment measures what matters: a company's impact on its workers, community, customers and the environment. By voluntarily meeting higher standards of transparency, accountability, and performance, Certified B Corps like RLI are offering a positive vision of a better way to do business... encouraging all companies to compete not just to be the best in the world, but to be the best for the world.
Certifying as a B Corporation is one of the wisest choices we have made. As of spring 2017, there is a growing community of over 2000 Certified B Corps from 50 countries and 130 industries working together toward 1 unifying goal: to redefine success in business.
