Australian-owned menswear brand, M.J. Bale, has confirmed it is now B Corp certified, joining a global community of businesses committed to using business as a force for good.

B Lab, the non-profit organisation behind the B Corp certification, executed a rigorous assessment of M.J. Bale’s practices, from its supply chain and environmental impact to treatment of employees and community obligations. The certification means the brand meets high and verifiable standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency.

“On behalf of all stakeholders, including our staff, board and network of partners, I am incredibly proud that we have attained the B-Corp certification,” M.J. Bale founder and CEO, Matt Jensen said.

“The certification is not an end in itself; we consider it more a baseline for us to continue to improve in all aspects related to our corporate governance and relationships with staff, community, environment and customers.”

Founded in 2009, M.J. Bale has an 86-store national network, including shop-in-shops in David Jones and Myer. In 2021, M.J. Bale became the first Australian fashion brand to be Climate Active-certified as carbon neutral for both products and organisation. It is currently renewing both its Climate Active certifications.
