VG Achieves B Corp Certification

Our recent B Corporation certification sets Verdical Group apart from your typical business and we’re glad to be in good company with 2,000+ other B Corp companies including Etsy, Method, Ben & Jerry’s, and Patagonia.  Verdical Group is a for-profit company, but we don’t have a singular focus on just profit; we create value for our team, community, and the environment by maximizing the power of our business to do good.  We wrote the definition of “verdical” and define it as “an upward trend in positive environmental impact”.  We believe nature is our greatest teacher and work to make the built environment function and feel more like the natural environment.

B Corps are a new type of company that use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.  B Corp certification is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee, or USDA Organic certification is to milk.  Verdical Group was certified by the nonprofit B Lab by meeting rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.  We are proud of the positive impact our business has on all of our stakeholders.  At Verdical Group, we’re redefining success in business so that, one day, everyone uses business as a force for good.  To learn more about our certification, check out our B-Corp Certification Webpage.
