We’re a Certified B Corporation — First in Houston!
OneSeventeen 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.
