Using Business As A Force For Good
In 2022, Ascent Employment Law Corporation became a certified B Corp.
B Corp certification means that a business is meeting high standards of verified performance, accountability, and transparency on factors from employee benefits and charitable giving to supply chain practices. The process is rigorous and requires a robust audit of a business’s practices by the certifying organization, B Lab.
In achieving B Corp certification, Ascent was able to demonstrate the following:
- High social and environmental performance by achieving a B Impact Assessment score of at least 80 points and passing a risk review;
- A legal commitment by changing our corporate governance structure to be accountable to all stakeholders, not just shareholders; and
- Exhibiting transparency by allowing information about our performance measured against B Lab’s standards to be publicly available on our B Corp profile on B Lab’s website.
Ascent is proud to be a B Corp and join a highly respected community of other B Corps, including Oxfam Fair Trade, Salt Spring Coffee, TIDAL New York, Ben and Jerry’s, and Patagonia Works, among many others.
