TORONTO, ONT. — Engineering consulting firm Entuitive has achieved its B Corporation (B Corp) Certification, joining a global network of businesses meeting the highest standards for positive social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency.
B Corp is achieved by measuring a company’s performance and evaluating how its operations, business model and profits affect employees, the environment, customers and the community. Entuitive is one of only 20 AEC B Corp Certified companies in North America, states a release.
Through an assessment of Entuitive’s social and environmental impact, the company received an overall score of 97.5. Entuitive scored higher than average B Corp organizations for its sector, size and country (Canada) in the categories of governance, workers, community and environment, the release continues.
Some highlights of the company’s focus on workers includes Entuitive’s focus on employee health, wellness, and safety, its worker owned-impact business model and its commitment to regular engagement and satisfaction surveys for employees.
Entuitive’s social efforts are mirrored by its commitment to sustainability. The company has been committed to carbon neutrality since 2018.
To achieve B Corp Certification, a company must meet a score of at least 80 points on the B Impact Assessment, an evaluation of a company’s positive impact. Candidates must also pass a risk review, an evaluation of a company’s negative impact, change their corporate governance structure to be accountable to all stakeholders, not just shareholders, and exhibit transparency by allowing information about their B Corp Certification performance to be publicly available, adds the release.
