As described on the B Corporation website:
“Certified B Corporations are a new type of corporation which uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.
B Corps, unlike traditional businesses:
- Meet comprehensive and transparent social and environmental performance standards;
- Meet higher legal accountability standards
- Build business constituency for good business.”
B corporations have third-party certified benefits for society and the environment. Enviro-Stewards scored in the “Area of Excellence” (over 60%) in every category. Our “B Impact Report” is shown in the image to the right (our full B Corp webpage can be found here).
Bruce Taylor (president of Enviro-Stewards) and Reg Snyder (the company’s CFO) recently attended a B corporation workshop in Pennsylvania to meet other members of certified B Corporations. The movement is rapidly growing in the US, where there are now 468 certified B Corps as well as several states with B Corp legislation. Currently there are only 20 certified B Corps in Canada.

In front of this historic site, each member of the group signed B Corp’s Declaration of Interdependence.
