On the surface, being a Public Benefit Corporation (PBC) isn’t much different than being a traditional corporation. What is quite different is that PBC’s are a systemic solution to a systemic problem — the constricted focus of maximizing shareholder value.
While many companies ignore their social responsibilities, BSW adheres to the highest standards of corporate purpose.
When we forget our responsibilities – to our community, our friends, our family – we weaken the bonds of our society. We believe that traditional companies will need to adopt a new way of doing business; caring about their employees, the communities they operate in, and the environment.
BSW is one of 849 companies in the world that are both a B Corp and PBC meeting the elite standards of corporate purpose.
For a glimpse of the future, look to the type of organizations that best handled the tumult of 2020. Organizations become what they measure; at BSW we measure ourselves by our progress toward our mission:
To ‘Make Life Better’ for BSW clients, staff and our broader community by building a long-term sustainable and environmentally considerate business that helps our clients and stakeholders achieve both financial security and lives of meaning, abundance, and fulfillment.
