Algbra, the international ethical and Sharia-compliant technology platform, has achieved the prestigious status of a B Corp following a demonstration of its commitment to the highest ESG standards through its UK finance app.

This achievement establishes Algbra as one of the select few financial institutions in the UK that have secured this distinction. Notably, Algbra holds the distinction of being the first FCA-authorised payments firm to attain this status. Moreover, on a global scale, it stands as the pioneering ethical, sustainable, and Sharia-compliant fintech company to achieve B Corp certification.

Algbra underwent a thorough certification process administered by B Lab, a nonprofit organisation dedicated to evaluating companies' social and environmental performance, as well as their transparency and accountability. This process encompassed an assessment of key metrics.

Algbra went beyond the basics by incorporating a commitment to considering the impact of decisions on all stakeholders directly into its Articles of Association. Furthermore, the company signed the B Corp Agreement and Declaration of Interdependence. Impressively surpassing the requisite score of 80 points, Algbra secured a score of 121.6, significantly above the average.

The Distinctive B Corp Certification

Certified B Corporations, or B Corps, represent enterprises that have undergone scrutiny by B Lab to ensure they meet rigorous standards for social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.

To obtain and uphold B Corp certification, Algbra, along with all other B Corps, had to accomplish the following:

  • Successfully complete the B Impact Assessment with a verified total score of 80 or more points.

  • Fulfill the B Corp legal requirement by amending their Articles of Association to incorporate a commitment to considering the impact of decisions on all stakeholders.

  • Agree to the B Corp Agreement and the Declaration of Interdependence.

  • Publicly disclose their impact score on the B Lab Directory and engage in recertification every three years.

Proudly Adopts the B Corp Emblem

Algbra takes immense pride in displaying the B Corp logo. This emblem serves as a potent symbol of Algbra's dedicated mission to utilise ethical finance as a catalyst for a more just and sustainable world.
