“We’ve joined a global movement that pledges to use business as a force for good, reinforcing what we have always done.” - Stephen Bolton, President and CEO of Libro Credit Union.
Libro Credit Union is incredibly proud to announce that we have become a Certified B Corporation®! We have joined a global movement and new corporate standard that is creating benefit for all and using business as a force for good.
B Corporations are important because they inspire all businesses to compete not only to be the best in the world, but to be the best for the world. We’re excited to tell southwestern Ontario, and the world that we care about how we do business.
There are over 2,400 Certified B Corporations from more than 150 industries and 60 countries. As a Certified B Corporation®, Libro is able to benchmark and further guide how we put our Be Libro statement to work and help us demonstrate to you, our stakeholders, that we are ‘walking the talk’.
Why did we become B Corp Certified?
At Libro Credit Union, we believe that using business as a force for good, reinforces what we have always done. Becoming B Corp certified:
- aligns with our business model and purpose integration plan;
- helps us be transparent and tell the Libro story, adding measurable, accountable standards of social and environmental responsibility and accountability; and
- brings awareness to a growing movement of business that are solving social and environmental challenges.
