We’re one in a thousand and proud to be a B Corp

Earlier this year, we were named not only as a B Corp, but a 2022 Best for the World™ B Corp™, making us one of the most sustainable companies in the world.

B Corp is a global movement of businesses who provide leadership by demonstrating their commitment to people and the planet. It’s one of the most demanding certifications to evaluate social and environmental impact, with B Corps are considered global leaders in the shift to sustainable business practices.

B Corp is considered the “gold standard” for sustainability, so it proves that we’re not just talking the talk but walking the walk too. It’s much more than just a certificate. It’s a chance for us to step forward and show how business can be a force for good.

This week, non-profit network B Lab announced a new milestone – there is now a community of over 1000 B Corps in Europe.  That’s 1000 companies who taking collective action to address society’s most critical challenges, working together to create an inclusive, equitable and regenerative economy.

We’re very proud to be part of a community of inspiring B Corp businesses, who, like us, believe in doing business responsibly, prioritising purpose as well as profit.  Every new B Corp is further proof that businesses thrive when they act for people and the planet. We must use our collective power to create the world we want to see, at the urgent speed required in order to meet the challenges of climate and social breakdown.

We hope that more businesses will be inspired to join the growing B Corp network. With the world’s attention on COP27 and discussions of the future of our planet, there’s no better time to step up and start the journey to being more transparent and accountable on climate action.

Why invest with a B Corp?

You might associate B Corp with brands selling products such as clothing and food – Patagonia, TOM’s and Ben & Jerry’s, for example. But B Corp is also a growing force in the financial services sector too. By investing your money with a B Corp finance firm like us, you can be sure that your money is being invested responsibly, helping contribute to a future that’s worth retiring into.

B Corp certification reflects an entire business, not just one product or service. Everything about the way a business is run is evaluated before it can receive B Corp certification, and it’s a rigorous process. So, it’s far from being a marketing gimmick. It sets us apart from other financial advisors, it holds us accountable, ensures transparency, and it shows that we’re authentic too.

Choosing a B Corp like Path Financial is a way of ensuring you are investing in a way that truly reflects your values and beliefs whilst helping to build a better future the planet and its people. Get in contact with us if you’d like to find out more.
