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 Corps are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment. This is a community of leaders, driving a global movement of people using business as a force for good.
Pacific Pathways is on the road to becoming a Certified B Corporation and has recently achieved the status of a Pending B Corp. Pending B Corps have submitted the comprehensive B Impact Assessment to B Labs, a third party nonprofit who awards certification. We will work with B Labs over the next year to implement and verify a wide range of corporate sustainability measures across all aspects of our operations.
B Corp principles are fully integrated into every aspect of Pacific Pathways. From reducing waste at the offices and residences, to a commitment to all non inflammatory vegetarian diet, to clinical services that incorporate sustainability concepts such as resilience and regeneration, we strive to demonstrate a wholistic approach to the treatment and recovery process. These values are reflected in our mission statement:
“To provide comprehensive, integrated mental health and substance abuse services across the continuum of care that promotes the good health, well-being, and quality of life to our clients and encourages environmental stewardship through sustainability education programs that positively impact all stakeholders”.
