Lett Architects Inc., proudly announces its newly earned Certified B Corporation™ status. Becoming Canada’s only B Corp™ architectural practice, and one of only a handful in North America.
“This certification reaffirms a commitment we made several year ago to social corporate responsibility,” said Bill Lett, Managing Principle. “It’s a process of continuous examination, identifying next steps we can take to better individuals, community and the environment.”
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. There are almost 4,000 B Corps in 150 industries and 74 countries with 1 unifying goal: to redefine success in business.
Integrity is one of our fundamental corporate values and the Certification process uses credible, comprehensive, transparent, and independent standards of social and environmental performance. The B Corp™ assessment process measures a company’s performance 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 high-quality jobs with dignity and purpose.
B Corp™ Certification is a highly selective status. Companies must document their positive impact to qualify and undergo verification every three years to maintain their Certification.
