B is for Benefit

With Vancouver Film Studios leading the way, we have dedicated ourselves to becoming a better business; a business that is a benefit to our employees, our customers, and the rest of the world.

What does it mean to be a business that’s a benefit to the world?  We’re on a mission to find out exactly how to be just that, and being a Certified B Corporation is part of that mission.

Here are just a few of the things we're doing to promote a healthy workplace, community, and world! Want to see more? Check out our full B Lab assessment with Vancouver Film Studios here.

Becoming a Certified B Corporation isn't just about the label. B Lab, the assessment branch of B Corp, helps us to continually measure our beneficial progress and coaches us on staying accountable.

Our companies were assessed based on our impact on our workers, customers, community, and environment. Everything counts- from our choice of suppliers, to our carbon footprint, to the treatment of our employees and hiring processes, and so much more. Every year, we set new goals to reach in terms of being more environmentally and socially conscious and beneficial. Our assessments help us to set goals that are in fact a benefit to the world, as does the B Corporation community. It's not just a one-and-done certification; every three years we are reassessed and put through the same rigorous process as the first time.

"Certified B Corporations are a new kind of business that balances purpose and profit. They 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."

When we say

'We Got Your Back',

we mean it.

We promise we're here to walk-the-walk, not just talk-the-talk. Part of being a B Corporation means two things: being held legally accountable (by amending our governing documents to balance profits and purpose), and being completely transparent about our assessments. Don't believe us? Take a look at our Corporate Responsibility Report and our full B Lab Assessment.
