SAN RAFAEL, CA., Aug. 21 /CSRwire/ - Encore Wealth Advisors, a sustainable wealth management firm, is proud to announce its certification as a B Corporation. We are thrilled to join the growing number of businesses deepening their commitment and practices of sustainability. Encore became a B Corp to further align our mission and values-based business with best practices in the B Corp community.
Certified B Corporations are a new type of corporation that uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. B Corps are unlike traditional businesses because they meet comprehensive and transparent social and environmental performance standards; meet higher legal accountability standards; and build the business constituency for sustainable companies.
Encore believes we live in a time in which the global economy is ravaging our planet and triggering a critical mass of complex, interrelated environmental, economic, social and political crises. To have an impact on the crises we face, the links between global sustainability issues and individual choices can no longer be ignored. Encore is committed to helping solve the climate crisis by supporting clients in divesting of fossil fuel investments. We accomplish this by offering a values based wealth management process, utilizing fossil free investment portfolios, that helps clients achieve their financial, social and environmental goals.
