GECA is proud to announce we are a certified B Corporation! We look forward to collaborating and networking with other businesses who share our commitment to making sustainable choices and value the credibility of independent third-party certification.
B Corp certification is a third-party verified demonstration of our commitment to working sustainably. Performance standards are comprehensive and transparent, measuring a company’s impact on all its stakeholders (e.g. workers, suppliers, community, and the environment). In other words, B Corp certification is “like Fair Trade certification but for the whole business, not just a bag of coffee”.
Certified B Corporations meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, legally expand their corporate responsibilities to include consideration of stakeholder interests, and build collective voice through the power of the unifying B Corporation brand. As of June 2014, there are more than 1,000 Certified B Corporations from over 60 industries and 34 countries, representing a diverse multi-billion dollar marketplace.
