140 Honorees Worldwide Honored for Meeting the Highest Standards of Social and Environmental Performance in Business
Boston MA // September 20, 2016 – Trillium Asset Management and 139 companies worldwide, were recognized by B Lab on its fourth annual ‘Best for the World Overall’ Honoree list for generating positive social and environmental impact through business practices and performance.
Every year, B Lab, a non-profit organization helping companies manage corporate social responsibility, recognizes businesses that have earned an overall score in the top 10% of approximately 1,800 Certified B Corporations on the B Impact Assessment. The assessment analyzes a company’s contributions to community development, employees, governance, and the environment. Matt Patsky, CEO of Trillium says:
“We are honored to be a part of the growing B Corporation movement that understands the role of companies in moving the world towards a more sustainable global economy.”
Recognized as a pioneer in the field of sustainable and responsible investing, B Corporation says, “[Trillium was] a B Corp before there was a name for it.” Trillium became a certified B Corporation in June 2008 and was the fourth financial firm to receive the designation. Honorees will be featured in the upcoming fall issue of B Magazine, a newly launched publication by B the Change Media. Trillium was also recognized as a “Best for the World for Overall Impact” honoree in 2013, 2014, and 2015.
