LongView is a Certified B Corporation
B Corporations are a new type of company dedicated to harnessing the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. Unlike traditional corporations, Certified B Corps are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions not only on their shareholders, but also on their stakeholders, which includes employees, suppliers, clients, community, and the environment.
The performance standards B Corps meet are comprehensive, transparent, and independently verified. Our certification involved answering and documenting 251 questions in a 48-page report covering our company's performance in the areas of socially responsible investments, client relations, governance, community engagement, environmental impact, employment policies, and collaboration with other members of the investment industry on sustainability issues.
As the first financial services firm in our state to become a B Corp, we join a community of over 2,500 companies in sixty countries that have been recognized for meeting higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. Household B Corp names include Patagonia, Ben and Jerry’s, New Belgium, Seventh Generation, Warby Parker, and Etsy.
LongView’s mission is to help our clients align their investments with their values and to manage wealth with the goal of sustainability for our planet. We have long been proponents of ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) standards in our investments. Our certification as a B Corporation speaks to our commitment to maintaining similarly high standards in our own conduct as a business.
