Idealist Consulting Achieves B Corporation Recertification

Certification demonstrates Salesforce partner's commitment to social and economic performance, transparency, and accountability

Submitted by: Idealist Consulting

Categories: Technology, Corporate Social Responsibility

Idealist Consulting, a Gartner-endorsed provider of Salesforce consulting for nonprofits and socially responsible businesses, today announced that it has completed its recertification as a B Corporation. Idealist Consulting was among the first 100 companies nationwide to become a B Corporation, and has been certified since 2008.

B Corporations have met comprehensive and transparent standards of social and environmental performance that are certified by B Lab, a nonprofit organization
dedicated to using the power of business to solve social and environmental
problems. B Corporations must also embed their values into their corporate
governing documents so stakeholders benefit from their business practices.

"As a longtime partner of the nonprofit and sustainable business community and one of the original 100 B Corps, we are thrilled to show our continued commitment to this movement," says Rob Jordan, CEO and Founder of Idealist Consulting. "More than ever, our clients are looking for consultants with values championed by B Corps, and recertification has been a great way for us to show that we care about local and sustainable partnerships."

Unlike traditional corporations, Certified B Corporations are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on their employees, suppliers, community, consumers, and environment. Today there are nearly 1000 B Corporations in 32 Countries.

About Idealist Consulting:
Founded by a Peace Corps business development volunteer, award-winning Idealist Consulting is dedicated to providing nonprofits, private sector businesses, and government with advanced technical solutions that help them run more effectively. Whether it is Salesforce database development, website integration, or technical training, we make every effort to provide thoughtful, ethical and approachable support. Idealist Consulting is recognized as one of the original Salesforce implementation partners and has been the top-ranked consulting firm on the AppExchange for five years running. A certified B Corporation, Idealist Consulting has implemented over 700 projects and is endorsed by Gartner for high-speed, low-risk Salesforce deployments.

About B Corp
Certified B Corporations 1) meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance; 2) legally expand their corporate responsibilities to include consideration of stakeholder interests; and 3) build collective voice through the power of the unifying B Corporation brand. As of August 2012, there were over 580 Certified B Corporations from over 60 industries, representing a diverse multi-billion dollar marketplace.

About B Lab
B Lab is a nonprofit organization dedicated to using the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. B Lab drives systemic change through three interrelated initiatives: 1) building a community of Certified B Corporations to make it easier for all of us to tell the difference between “good companies” and just good marketing; 2) accelerating the growth of the impact investing asset class through use of B Lab’s GIIRS impact rating system by institutional investors; and 3) promoting supportive public policies, including creation of a new corporate form and tax, procurement, and investment incentives for sustainable business.
