For the fourth year in a row, Earth Equity Advisors was selected as a Best For The World B Corporation. We were honored in two categories: Customers and Changemakers, which ranks the firm in the top 10 percent of all 3,000 B Corps worldwide for our positive impact in each category.

We’re especially proud to be honored in the customers category. The work we do for our clients, helping them to align their investments with their values, is core to our mission.

According to B Labs, the Changemakers designation recognizes our significant improvement to the overall impact on our workers, customers, communities, the environment, and governance. B Corps that earn the designation as a “Changemakers” set a gold standard for managing and improving business’ social and environmental impact over time.

The recognitions continue to validate the work that the firm does – sustainable, responsible and impact investing (SRI). We proudly offer our clients a range of fossil-fuel-free investment options at a variety of risk levels.

The entire Earth Equity team deserves a ton of credit for these continued honors. The firm’s mission permeates every decision we make, no matter how small and guides everything from our investment policy to our hiring practices.

2019 is a certification year for the firm (re-certification happens every three years), and we look forward to another year of improvement in our already high scores.

B Corps meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corp Certification doesn’t just evaluate a product or service, it assesses the overall positive impact of the company that stands behind it—like Earth Equity Advisors. Using the B Impact Assessment, B Lab evaluates how a company’s operations and business model impact its workers, community, environment, and customers.

Best For The World recognition is administered by B Lab, the global nonprofit that certifies and supports Certified B Corporations, which are for-profit companies dedicated to using business as a force for good. Today there are 3,000 Certified B Corporations across 64 countries and 150 industries, unified by one common goal: to redefine success in business.
