"We are honored that our concerted efforts at Greenvest to drive positive change both as a company and through our clients’ investments have been formally recognized. B Corp certification is about as rigorous as it gets. Even as a very committed company, we still had to do a significant amount of work and documentation, which has only further increased our respect and admiration for any business that earns B Corp status. The B Corp community is fantastic, and we encourage any like-minded business to start the application if they have the social commitment and bandwidth," said Craig Walker, Financial Advisor with Greenvest.
Greenvest provides personal consulting on socially responsible investing (SRI) and creates custom investment portfolios that align with each client’s individual social values and financial goals.
