Who are B-Corporations?
Milestone Financial Planning is excited to announce that after months of hard work, we can finally call ourselves a B-Corp. For those who aren't familiar of B-Corporations, they are for-profit companies that seek to be a force for good by helping to build a more inclusive and sustainable economy. Milestone is the first B-Corporation investment advisor in New Hampshire and joins the ranks of other well-known B-Corporations such as Patagonia, Danone, ReVision Energy, and everyone's favorite ice cream Ben & Jerry's. There are currently over 2,700 B Corporations, in 150 industries, in over 70 countries.
How to become a B-Corp
Becoming a B-Corp is not easy. A company can become a B-Corp only by documenting their positive impact in various categories such as the workplace, the community, and the environment. The documentation process is audited by B Labs to verify that each company's claims are accurate. In addition to that, Milestone, and all other B-Corps, must be re-evaluated on a regular basis to ensure that their business practices are still in line with the standards
