WHEB Asset Management is pleased to announce that it is from today a Certified B Corporation® having been assessed as meeting the criteria for the B Corp certification.
‘B Corp’ is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or organic certification is to milk. B Corps are for-profit companies certified by the non-profit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.
There are over 1,700 B Corporations in 50 countries, with 1 unifying goal – to redefine success in business. B Corporations are important because they inspire all businesses to compete, not only to be the best in the world, but to be the best for the world.
In order to be certified, WHEB Asset Management has met with the higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability required of B Corporations. These performance standards are comprehensive, transparent and verified, measuring our impact on all of our stakeholders (including workers, suppliers, community, customers and the environment).
Becoming a certified B Corporation underlines our commitment to sustainability and our overall mission, to “advance sustainability and create prosperity through positive impact investments”.
WHEB Asset Management is focused on a single long-only global equities strategy to invest in companies providing solutions to some of the most serious environmental and social challenges facing mankind over the coming decades. This strategy focuses on sustainable investment and the integration of environmental, social and governance issues into investment decision-making.
