BOSTON – WeSpire, the leading employee experience solution for Environment, Social & Governance (ESG) initiatives, today announced it is a Certified B Corporation™ (B Corp™), joining the rapidly growing global movement of more than 6,000 Certified B Corporations from 160+ industries, across 89 countries including companies like Patagonia, Ben & Jerry’s, and Culture Amp.

Certified B Corporations meet high standards of social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability, and aspire to use the power of markets to address social and environmental problems. B Corps become certified through rigorous verification by B Lab and must meet strict standards to join a global community of leaders using business as a force for good.

“I fundamentally believe that business can most effectively, and profitably, solve some of the world’s biggest environmental and social problems. But it requires recognizing the importance of long-term, systems thinking, with stakeholder impact at the forefront of strategy.” said Susan Hunt Stevens, Founder & CEO of WeSpire. “Because we enable organizations to activate purpose and impact in their workplace, we need to walk the walk, and not just talk the talk. Once Delaware supported becoming a public benefit corporation, achieving the B Corp Certification was the next goal. We are proud to join the incredible group of companies working to change business for the better.”
