GECA is thrilled to be recognised for creating innovative governance structures to protect our mission for the long term.
The Best For Governance list is based on an independent, comprehensive assessment administered by the nonprofit B Lab. The list includes businesses that earned a Governance score in the top 10 per cent of more than 2,400 Certified B Corporations on the B Impact Assessment.
The full assessment measures a company’s impact on its workers, community, customers and the environment. To certify as B Corporations, companies like GECA must complete the full assessment and have their answers verified by B Lab.
“We are really proud of the governance structures we have put in place as they ensure we stick to our values of integrity, independence and impact. This means that the change we create is bolstered by transparency and credibility.” ~ Sarah Sannen, Operations and Finance Manager at GECA
The Governance portion of the B Impact Assessment evaluates a company’s overall mission, ethics, accountability and transparency. It measures whether the company has adopted a social or environmental mission, and how it engages its employees, board members and the community to achieve that mission. This section assesses employee access to financial information, customers’ opportunities to provide feedback and the diversity of the company’s governing bodies.
At GECA, we’re proud to be setting a gold standard for the high impact that business as a force for good can make around the world.
