HOUSTON, Texas, Jun. 12 /CSRwire/ - Today, Green Grove Group, a sustainability solutions company offering resource efficiency, sustainability operations, and employee engagement consulting announced they are the first sustainability consultants in Texas to earn a Certified B Corporation designation.
Certified B Corps must meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance; legally expand their corporate responsibilities to include consideration of stake holders interests; and build a collective voice through the power of the unifying B Corporation brand. Green Grove Group underwent a thorough impact assessment, assessment review, as well as demonstrated the required social and environmental practices required to become a Certified B Corp. Measurement is based on the company’s impact on its employees, suppliers, community and the environment.
"Certified B Corporations meet higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability," stated president and founder Tajana Mesic. "We feel we are in good company along side such leaders at Patagonia, Seventh Generation, iContact, Etsy, and Better World Books who are making a statement that there is a new way doing business that not only creates profits but is fair for every stakeholder and creates a better future."
As of June 2012, there were over 520 Certified B Corporations from over 50 industries, representing a diverse multi-billion dollar marketplace.
