Agence 148 gets B-Corp certification

What does this mean?

Being B-Corp certified means aiming to develop a business in keeping with more humane and sustainable economic principles. This certification is an indication of Agence 148’s commitment to constantly striving to improve what it has to offer its clients, its employees and its network of partners in the framework of its governance and even as far as limiting its environmental impact!

The B Corp certification is not just another meaningless label:

Feuilles Gauche

It is an international movement that certified over 2,500 companies around the world in 2018.

But what does it mean in practical terms?

The agency answered questions to establish where it ranked in terms of the various B Corp assessment criteria and was scored on each criterion. This score isn’t a rating, as such, but rather an indicator. For the purposes of comparison, we have listed our scores next to those of a similar (and therefore comparable) B Corp to ours that has obtained high scores to enable us to identify our strengths and those areas in which we can improve.
