Caritas Law Group is pleased to announce that B Labs has certified us as a B Corporation, Arizona’s first!
B Lab’s vision is simple yet ambitious: to create a new sector of the economy that uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. Under current law, for-profit corporations are required to make decisions that will maximize profit and benefit their shareholders. B-Corps, instead, are a new type of corporation, held accountable to a triple bottom line: environmental sustainability, social benefits and monetary profit.
As a certified B Corp., we have gone through B Labs’ rigorous assessment and made improvements in our social benefit and environmental sustainability as a result. Carter Law Group is committed to advancing the field of philanthropy. We believe our services benefit the public because we help our nonprofit and tax-exempt clients maximize their own effectiveness. We are a triple bottom line company that tracks financial, social and environmental impact performance and strives to maximize all three. We are looking forward to sharing our knowledge of the B Corp. qualification process as well as interacting with our fellow B-Corps.
