From the beginning, we wanted to do things differently in investment banking. We’ve continued to look for ways to be a better corporate citizen in the world, and in 2021 applied to become a B Corp.
While that process is underway, we’ve made the necessary changes to our legal structure and included the required language allowing us to be a Benefit Company in British Columbia.
We have set some modest goals for 2022, which include getting our B Corp certification, measuring our current impact in the areas of waste, corporate travel, commuting to the office, philanthropy, and community involvement.
Once we’ve gathered the data, we will be on a path to find meaningful ways to reduce our current footprint and find alternatives to those daily habits that all add up.
It’s a start. And we are so ready, and so excited to be on this journey.
