CSR Press Release

Moye White Announces B Corp Certification

Prestigious designation is a first for a Denver law firm

Submitted by: Moye White LLP

Categories: Corporate Social Responsibility, Business Ethics

Posted: Jan 14, 2014 – 04:35 PM EST

 

DENVER, Jan. 14 /CSRwire/ - Denver law firm, Moye White LLP, announced today that the firm has become a Certified B Corporation. The prestigious designation is awarded to companies that use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems and meet higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability.

Moye White is the first Denver law firm to achieve B Corp certification, and one of only a handful of law firms recognized nationally. The firm also becomes the third-largest B Corporation in Colorado and one of the larger professional services companies in the exclusive B Corp community.

“At Moye White we take social responsibility seriously, as we have since the firm’s founding nearly forty years ago,” said Managing Partner Tom List. “Our steadfast commitment to community, the environment and the highest ethical standards meant that pursuing B Corp certification was an easy decision.” List noted that the firm’s recent foray into the area of natural and sustainable products, a specialty practice area for only a few law firms in the western U.S., meshed perfectly with B Corporation standards and ideals.

“We are excited to welcome Moye White as a Certified B Corporation,” said Jay Coen Gilbert, co-founder of B Lab. “The firm is a perfect addition to a select and ever-expanding group of socially-conscious companies in Colorado.”

To become a certified B Corporation, B Lab, the nonprofit that certifies and supports B Corporations, conducted a rigorous evaluation of Moye White and determined that the firm’s practices met the comprehensive performance standards required to qualify for certification. The evaluation included a frank disclosure of information relating to Moye White’s operations, hiring and promotion procedures, environmental management practices and governance.

“We are extremely proud to have joined the B Corporation community,” added Dominick Sekich, the Moye White partner who spearheaded the firm’s certification efforts. “We are glad to be in the company of New Belgium and Rally Software, Colorado B Corp pioneers, and national icons like Ben & Jerry’s.”

About B Lab
B Lab is a nonprofit organization that serves a global movement to redefine success in business so that all companies compete not only to be the best in the world, but the best for the world. B Lab drives this systemic change through a number of interrelated initiative: 1) building a community of Certified B Corporations to make it easier for all of us to tell the difference between “good companies” and good marketing; 2) passing legislation to accelerate growth of social entrepreneurship and impact investing (12 states have already passed benefit corporation legislation); 3) driving capital to high impact investments through the use of GIIRS Ratings and Analytics (more than 60 investors with over $3B in impact assets under management use GIIRS); and 4) providing free, powerful tools for businesses to measure, compare and improve their social and environmental performance (more than 7,000 businesses use B Lab’s free B Impact Assessment).
