I just listened to the Nerd Alert Podcast, and James/Caley/Dave thought that Chris King might be the only b-corporation in the cycling industry.
Are you folks aware of any others? For those of you who don’t know what a b-corp is, here is a primer. You don’t need to be a b-corp to be a responsible corporate citizen (like many of the small firms in cycling that treat employees, customers, and the planet with an equitable, long-term mindset), but to be a b-corp definitely forces a firm to take being responsible to the next level.
One that I’d add should count: Alpkit. It’s a UK-based outdoor retailer, basically the UK version of REI. It has a nice in-house bike brand, called Sonder. I only learned of them (being from the U.S.) this year, when I bought a Sonder Colibri Ti Ultegra, an all-road titanium bike that I absolutely love.
Does Alpkit count? They make good, value-based bikes, so I figure at least in a cycling-adjacent way.
What other b-corps are out there?
