Certified B Corporation®

About B Corps™

 

Certified B Corporations® (B Corps™) 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. Instead of relying upon non-profits and charities and government, we believe in using business as a force for good, and a force for change.

 

On August 2nd 2019 Barriston Law became the first B Corp™ certified law firm in Ontario, the third in Canada, and 35th in the world.
