Sensiba becomes first California accounting firm to attain B Corp status
Pleasanton, Calif., May 23, 2018 – Sensiba LLP, a leading Northern California-based CPA and business-consulting firm, is proud to announce it has become the first accounting firm in California to achieve B Corp certification.
This designation places Sensiba among a vetted group of companies committed to being a force for good and creating value for society beyond profit alone. To become certified, companies must undergo and pass a rigorous assessment by B Lab that evaluates their mission, employment practices, governance structure, social impact and environmental stewardship.
The certification meets a growing consumer demand as more Americans look to companies to support social and environmental issues in some capacity. More than 2,100 companies across 50 countries and 130 industries are B Corp certified, including Etsy, Ben & Jerry’s and Patagonia.
Called “the highest standard for socially responsible business” by Inc. magazine, B Corp certification recognizes companies who voluntarily meet standards of transparency, accountability and social impact.
“Sensiba exists to help people. We use our professional and personal skills to improve the lives of our families, our communities, our clients and our colleagues,” said John Sensiba, Managing Partner of Sensiba LLP. “Through our service to others, our commitment to integrity, stewardship of the environment and kindness, we intend to better the lives of those we touch directly. Indirectly, we strive to be a positive force in the global community. The B Corp certification helps us better assess how our core values are aligned with our daily operations and where to improve.”
