So what is B Corp and what does that mean for you?
Certified B Corporations™ are businesses dedicated to meeting the highest standards of verifiable social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability. This movement is helping redefine success by giving companies, and their customers, a tangible and measurable benchmark.
In short, it means we’re committed to creating a more socially equitable world, and joining the ranks of other B Corp certified companies—such as Patagonia, Ben & Jerry’s, and Seventh Generation.
As the first bank headquartered in Maine to become a Certified B Corporation, we’re using this as another opportunity to lead by example. It’s a signal to our business partners, clients, and communities that your money’s not only in safe hands, but caring ones as well. We’ll continue to pay it forward, and to use the loyalty and trust we’ve earned to make Maine a more equitable, sustainable home for everyone.
