Building a B Corporation6.6.17
Becoming a certified B Corporation is a very Oregon thing to do. Of the nearly 2,000 B Corps in the world, 85 are based in Oregon — a pretty huge number for a relatively small state. It’s not all that surprising, though, given Oregon’s environmental ethos (think Bottle Bill, strict land-use laws, and an aggressive Renewable Portfolio Standard requiring that 50 percent of the state’s electricity come from renewable resources by 2040). In this article in Portland Monthly, learn why Green Hammer decided to pursue B Corporation certification and what that means for our business.
"At Green Hammer, we’ve always been committed to certifying our buildings through third-party organizations because it provides transparency and clarity around what we mean when we say a building is ‘green.’ We felt it was important to undergo the same scrutiny when it comes to our business practices," says Green Hammer founder and CEO, Stephen Aiguier.
