Fairware is a founding member of the Canadian Benefit Corporation movement and we’ve been committed to ‘using business as a force for good’ from day one.
Certified in 2010, Fairware is proud to be a founding member of the Canadian B Corp. B Corps use business as a force for good and are certified to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. In addition to completing the Impact Assessment, we are required to adopt the B Corp legal framework into our governing documents and sign the B Corp Declaration of Interdependence. Find out more about certification here.
There is a growing global community of over 2,400 companies in 50 countries who are actively solving social and environmental problems. We are in the company of great brands like Danone, Patagonia, Ben and Jerry’s and over 150 Canadian businesses. It is important to us to be a part of a larger community working for positive change on both the social and environmental fronts.
We are required to re-certify every three years, which keeps us on our toes, striving to improve. It’s a great framework for identifying and monitoring progress. It is also an important signal to our customers, vendors and peers that we’re committed to a business model that reflects community and environmental priorities.
