Wealth management firm continues its commitment to building a more inclusive and sustainable economy
SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, October 15, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Humphreys Group, a women-owned and -operated wealth management firm in San Francisco, has officially become a Certified B Corporation, joining a global movement of for-profit companies dedicated to using business as a force for good.
“At The Humphreys Group, we are constantly emphasizing the importance of clients’ living their values. By becoming a B Corp, we are doing the same thing,” said Diane Bourdo, CFP, President of The Humphreys Group. “Our clients’ trust is important to us, and by becoming a B Corp, they can know with certainty that we’re not just talking the talk — we’re walking the walk.”
Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corp businesses work toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of high-quality jobs with dignity and purpose.
To date, there are over 3,500 Certified B Corporations in 150 industries and 74 countries, such as well-known brands Patagonia, Ben & Jerry’s, Athleta, and Seventh Generation. Over 100,000 companies manage their impact with the B Impact Assessment and the SDG Action Manager.
“At The Humphreys Group, we feel strongly that financial metrics should not be the only thing considered when gauging success, and that a business should be run for the benefit of all the stakeholders — the clients, employees, communities, and the environment,” Bourdo said. “We’re excited to be part of this powerful community that also shares these values.”
Becoming a certified B Corporation is a rigorous process. B Lab, the governing body of B Corp certification, reviews all business functions — ranging from the merits of the product offering, employee benefits and broader HR policies, and financial management to the company’s involvement in the community, corporate governance, and environmental impact.
