Using Business as a Force for Good
Deepening our commitments as a Certified B Corporation
Evergreen became a Certified B Corporation to demonstrate the high value we place on our people, our clients, our community — and our commitment to being a positive force for good in society and for the environment. Through the rigorous B Corp certification process, clients, partners and employees have clear and visible proof of how our company actions and values align with theirs.
