We recently conducted our fourth B Lab assessment to maintain our B Corp certification. Our final assessment score was 141 points, which is a dramatic improvement from our three previous scores which were: 2014 – 89 points, 2012 – 88 points and 2010 – 93 points. These B Scores are all positive assessment scores (even a small positive score means that you are doing something good) and many companies, both large and small struggle to receive the passing minimal score of 80 points. The maximum score is 200 points.
The B Corp assessment is a rigorous audit comprised of five sections: Governance, Workers, Community, Environment and Customers. Our purpose for pursuing B Corp certification is as follows:
The B Corp certification recognizes companies that use the power of business to positively impact social and environmental change. Cascade Engineering is one of 2000 + businesses both large and small that have been certified as B Corps.
For us this certification represents an affirmation of over a decade’s worth of work creating a culture and strategy focused on sustainability, and our commitment to our Triple Bottom Line principals.
Our latest B Lab assessment score of 141 points could not have been possible without the hard work, dedication and contribution of every employee representing our Family of Companies. Thank you!
