Best for the World™ 2022 - Awarded to Anywise

Updated: Jul 13

Anywise is recognised as a 2022 Best For The World™ for exceptional impact on its Governance.


Melbourne, 13/07/22 -- Anywise, a veteran owned and operated consultancy specialising in defence, government, and humanitarian project design and management, has been named a 2022 Best for the World™ B Corp™. This global award is in recognition of its exceptional positive impact on its overall governance, measured by its engagement in social and environmental ethics and transparency.




Best for the World is a distinction granted by B Lab to Certified B Corporations (B Corps) whose verified B Impact Scores in the five impact areas evaluated in the B Impact Assessment — community, customers, environment, governance, and workers — rank in the top 5% of all B Corps in their corresponding size group.


Anywise has earned this honour due to their initiatives such as AIDE (a pro-bono service which Anywise offers non-profit organisations and those requiring project management guidance or support), the recent approval of their Reconciliation Action Plan by Reconciliation Australia, as well as regular participation in local charitable causes such as The Bloody Long Walk, May 50k, and the Push-Up Challenge.


Adam Evans, Managing Director of Anywise, says, “I am extremely proud to represent the company as a Best for the World Honouree. This recognition demonstrates the power of aligning core company values with those of the individuals in the team. Creating a culture of inclusivity, fairness and positive impact across all of our stakeholders has led to some really great outcomes.” Reflecting upon initiatives which lead to this award, Adam Evans further states, “our governance model reflects our company more broadly, it has only just enough process to be repeatable and aligns with the core values of the company and the team members that are in it. All of our staff are empowered to make decisions and trusted to do the right thing. As we grow, our impact in our community also grows so we are all driven by a sense of purpose, not just a responsibility to provide profit to shareholders. We amended our constitution so are legally bound to consider all stakeholders in our decision making.”


Every year, Best for the World recognises the top-performing B Corps creating the greatest positive impact through their businesses. More than a badge of honour, Best for the World provides an opportunity for recognised companies to share knowledge, learnings, and best practices with the B Corp community and businesses outside of the community to encourage innovation and transformation across the business sector. The full lists are available at bcorporation.net.


The Best for the World recognition is administered by B Lab, the global non-profit network that certifies and mobilises B Corps, which are businesses that meet high standards of positive social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. Today, there are more than 5,000 B Corps across 80 countries and 155 industries, unified by one common goal: building an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economic system.


"Each Best for the World edition is an opportunity to raise the bar for how businesses can and should operate to create real and lasting positive impact for their workers, customers, communities, and the environment," said Dan Osusky, Head of Standards and Insights at B Lab Global. "While no company is perfect and even the best companies can and should continue to strive to improve, the B Corps recognised as Best for the World can provide us all — standards setters, B Corps, non B Corps, and sustainability advocates — with inspiration on what true leadership in business can look like to make progress on addressing our current global challenges.”


B Corp Certification doesn’t just evaluate a product or service, it assesses the overall social and environmental impact of the company that stands behind it. To achieve B Corp Certification, a company must meet a score of at least 80 points on the B Impact Assessment, an evaluation of a company’s positive impact, and pass a risk review, an evaluation of a company’s negative impact; change their corporate governance structure to be accountable to all stakeholders, not just shareholders; and exhibit transparency by allowing information about their B Corp Certification performance to be publicly available on their B Corp profile on B Lab’s website.
