Venturetec is a certified B Corporation

B-Corp certification is to sustainable business what Fair Trade
certification is coffee.

B Corporations represent an emerging group of companies that are using the power of business to create a positive impact on the world and generate a shared and durable prosperity for all.  B Corps meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability, and aspire to use the power of markets to solve social and environmental problems.

Certified B Corporations have undertaken the B Impact Assessment, scored over 80, and have signed a term sheet that declares that they will consider all stakeholders. It is a rigorous assessment that explores a company’s governance, transparency, environmental and social impact. B Corps voluntarily hold themselves to a higher level of accountability in these areas.

Together, B Corps redefine success in business by competing not to be the best in the world, but to be the best for the world.

Together, we will be the change that we seek in the world.

Today, there is a growing community of more than 1,229 Certified B Corps from 41 countries and 121 industries working together toward 1 unifying goal: to redefine success in business.
