To say i am elated, excited or over the moon would just be an understatement. Founding a B Corp certified business has been a dream of mine ever since I became an entrepreneur. Rewind to 2011 when I first started working at GreenStep Solution as a Project Manager. At the time GreenStep was just a start up and recent gotten certified. I learned that being certified not only meant walking the walk but it was a rigorous review of multiple aspect of your business operations to truly determined if you are making the social and environmental impact you say you are.
Fast forward to 2020 when the doors to Chickpeace opened. One of my greatest visions for this business was to make a positive impact in as many areas as I could. Being evaluated by B Corp was my way of being and doing better. Where could we improve? How could we serve our community in a more meaningful way?
This certification wasn't just one person filling out an assessment but it was full team effort that took many months of reporting, analyzing and levelling up our opoerations. I couldn't have done it without the amazing humans that make Chickpeace what it is both present and in the past.
It is an incredible honour to be amongst leaders in the global movement for an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economy. We are transforming the world to benefit all people, communities and the planet.
This certification is our way of holding ourselves accountable and transparent to all of you so that we create a safe, inclusive and healthy environment both inside and outside our doors.
Thank you for being on this journey with us.
