Outdoor adventure brand Kammok bags B Corporation status

Kammok, an outdoor adventure brand specializing in camping hammocks and gear for the socially conscious adventurer, announces their new B Corporation status. B Lab, the non-profit body behind the B Corporation designation, recognizes companies that use the power of business to solve economic and social problems.

Kammok creates high quality outdoor gear and apparel for the socially and environmentally conscious adventurer. Kammok launched in 2011 with two revolutionary camping products: the ROO, a single adult camping hammock or "kammok", and the Python Straps hammock suspension system.
 
Kammok's revolutionary camping hammocks elevate the traditional camping experience, providing adventurers with a durable, lightweight shelter that makes minimal impact on their surroundings. And through the company's corporate giving model, every Kammok product sold helps support environmental and social issues around the world.
 
Through a partnership with Malaria No More, Kammok donates a treated mosquito net or health education to a family in Africa and also donates 1% of revenue to CTC International and their sustainable development projects in Maai Mahiu, Kenya through a partnership with 1% For The Planet.
 
Since its inception, Kammok has seen tremendous success, experienced exponential growth and has continued to take evolutionary steps to demonstrate their mission. Kammok is committed to leading in social/environmental impact and B-Corp offers a great framework to measure improvement.
 
“Being certified as a B-Corp wasn’t an easy undertaking, but well worth it!" said Greg Mcevilly, CEO of Kammok. "We're excited to help draw a line drawn in the dirt, joining other businesses that have made the commitment to do away with business as usual. This recognition reinforces our commitment to a stakeholder-centric business model and our mission of engaging people in the adventure of changing lives."
 
Certified B Corporations operate the same as traditional businesses but meet higher standards of corporate purpose, accountability, and transparency. In order to be recognized as a Certified B Corporation, Kammok had to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance and legally expand its corporate responsibilities to include consideration of stakeholder interests. With this recognition, Kammok joins a growing list of for-profit businesses including Patagonia, Warby Parker, Klean Kanteen and Etsy in their commitment to social and economic performance, transparency and accountability.
