Home | News | Salvos Legal is now a certified B Corporation
8th July, 2016
Salvos Legal is proud to announce that we have become a certified B Corporation in recognition of our firm’s mission to change people’s lives through access to justice, funded by our social enterprise model commercial law firm.
B Corporations are a new kind of company which uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems (the B stands for ‘Benefit’). It’s like Fair Trade certification but for the whole business rather than a single product like coffee or chocolate (although we love those too!).
We’re really excited to be among the first Australian companies to join the global B Corp community of over 1,700 certified B Corporations in 130 industries.
So what does this mean for Salvos Legal? It means we have undertaken a rigorous assessment of our governance, transparency, environmental and social impact and we will hold ourselves to a higher level of accountability in these areas.
As a certified B Corporation, our clients, team, volunteers, supporters and partners can be confident that we consider the impact of our decisions on all of our stakeholders.
