In December 2017 Cascade became a Certified B Corporation (B Corp), a process that documents we meet a higher standard of social and environmental performance...we’re like the certified Fair Trade Coffee companies of the web development industry. We’ve joined the ranks of over 2000 companies in 130 industries across 50 countries. And, we’re proud to be part of the Oregon business community that leads the US in Certified companies.
Going through the B Corp Certification was a natural progression for us because we were already living up to many of the standards of social and environmental performance. From our railcar offices, employee benefits and community involvement, we felt it was important to take the additional steps to document our role as leaders in the business and local communities.
Certification also allows us a way to track and continually improve five key areas of operations:
We actively encourage our clients and partners to take the B Corp assessment and look to build relationships with more B Corps in the future.
