Fronteer is B Corp certified – Proud to use business as a force for good
At Fronteer we believe business can be a force for good. Therefore making a positive impact with our strategy projects is a top priority to us. Now we can celebrate that we are living up to the highest standards in terms of social and environmental performance, social responsibility and transparency because we became officially B Corp Certified.
About B Corporations
Society’s most challenging problems cannot be solved by government and nonprofits alone. B Corps are organisations that use profits and growth as a means to a greater end: positive impact for their employees, communities, and the environment. The B Corp community strongly emphasizes that businesses need to change by focussing on all stakeholders of the firm, not solely on profit. More than 3000 companies have joined this community of new business leaders that drive a global movement of a more inclusive and sustainable economy. The campaign Vote Everyday from B Lab captures exactly how we feel at Fronteer: you cast your vote every day with the choices you make—what you buy, where you work and who you do business with. Every day is an election day, choose wisely.
Why we joined the community
As a creative strategy firm we use the power of co-creation to accelerate positive impact. For example; we helped Forestwise to position itself in order to grow and being able to save the rainforest, for the Volksbank we developed a new tool to boost people’s financial resilience, and together with Eneco we helped to make sustainable energy accessible to everyone. To formalise and reinforce our commitment to do good we decided to join the B Corp community. It’s a commitment that forces us to think more holistically about everything we do; it guides every decision we make.
Practice what we preach
Besides our strategy projects, we also focus on doing good internally at Fronteer. We have a vegetarian lunch, we banned products that contain palm oil, are very serious about recycling and have a fly-policy into place. Using your business as a force for good is a powerful differentiator and we are proud to join the inspiring B Corp community. Doing good is in our DNA and now we officially practice what we preach. Time to celebrate!
The official B Corp month takes place in March. Follow us to join conversations and read our stories on becoming part of this community. Interested to become B Corp certified yourself? Talk to us!
