a_bcorp_logo_negOneSeventeen Media is officially B Corporation Certified!  We’re honored to join B Labs as their 176th Certified B Corporation and the first “B Corp” in Houston, Texas.  By being a B Corp, we are strengthening our pledge to do business in a way that honors our people, profit and planet.  As the B Corp website explains

“B Corporations are a new type of corporation which uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.  B Corporations are unlike traditional responsible businesses because they:


  • Meet comprehensive and transparent social and environmental performance standards.
  • Institutionalize stakeholder interests.
  • Build collective voice though the power of a unifying brand.”

As part of the class of 2009, we’re in good company.  Checking out our fellow B Corps is a great way to choose companies to do business with and a trustworthy assurance of their business practices.
