Gordon Holley, Co-founder and CEO of Humanity, ‘Certifying as a B Corporation is a natural extension of Humanity Financial’s business practices, which are expressive of appreciating and valuing the social, environmental, and cultural impacts that our clients exist to achieve. We hope that in the very near future, B Corps™ will become the new normal: that all businesses will operate within an intentional framework of doing business by doing good.’
