What is B Corp?
B Corps are a new type of company that use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. B Corp certification is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk.
To become certified, we evaluated how our practices impact our employees, our community, the environment, and our customers. We met B Lab’s rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.
Why B Corp?
At Kent Employment Law, we are motivated by a desire to “do good”. As a law firm working to enable positive workplace relationships, certification allows us to model for our clients the types of sustainable business practices we help them to adopt.
As of February 2021, we are a member of a community of over 3,800 Certified B Corps around the globe (approximately 300 in Canada), including Patagonia, Ben & Jerry’s, Hootsuite, Etsy, Mills Office Productivity, Seventh Generation, Business Development Bank of Canada, Kleen Kanteen and Danone. We are proud to join them in redefining success in business, so that one day everyone uses business as a force for good.
And as the first Canadian law firm to become B Corp certified, we hope to inspire other law firms across the country to join it in our campaign to B the Change.
