San Ramon, Calif.-based IPA 100 firm Armanino LLP has joined the ranks of more 3,500 global companies in becoming certified as a B Corporation, confirming that the firm has met certain standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency and legal accountability.
In addition to passing a thorough assessment, certified B Corporations amend their legal governing documents to require their board of directors to balance profit and purpose. In its B Impact Report, Armanino demonstrated leadership in the areas of governance, workers, community, environment and customers.
“Armanino’s purpose of harnessing innovation and entrepreneurial thinking to make a positive impact on its clients, its people and its communities has been its bedrock, and is in perfect alignment with the B Corporation movement,” says CEO Matt Armanino. “That is why our partners and staff have emphatically supported the decision to undertake a year-long process that validates the work we do to live our values in every aspect of the business, whether it be how we operate internally or interact with our clients and communities.”
