PlaceSpeak Certified as a B Corporation
PlaceSpeak is pleased to announce that we have officially been approved as a Certified B Corporation™. B Corp Certification is a highly selective and rigorous process; it doesn’t just measure a product or service, but assesses the overall positive impact of the company in five categories: governance, workers, customers, community, and the environment. The B Corp community works toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of more high quality jobs with dignity and purpose. PlaceSpeak is proud to join the ranks of other B Corps who advocate for these values within their business models.
Certified B Corporations™ are for-profit companies that use the power of business to build a more inclusive and sustainable economy. They meet the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.
PlaceSpeak joins the growing community of over 3,5000 B Corps in 70 countries and 150 industries that are transforming the global economy to benefit all people, communities and the planet.
“I am very excited to see that PlaceSpeak has received B Corp Certification. As a community engagement platform, it is important that PlaceSpeak maintains its focus on its mission as a social purpose organization; specifically in our role building trust through legitimate online democratic practices while maintaining high standards for online security and privacy,” said Gordon Hardwick, PlaceSpeak president. “PlaceSpeak will continue to review corporate processes and platform features to ensure continuous improvement in the areas of environmental and social responsibility; to build more informed and engaged communities; and fortify its position as a Certified B Corporation. ”
What does this mean?
Across a variety of industries and around the world, these companies are putting people and the planet before profits and redefining what it means to be successful in business. Across borders and cultures, these companies have all signed a commitment not just to do less harm, but to do more good.
