Aligned Law is an Oregon benefit company, which is a corporate status for companies that aim to make a positive impact on society and the environment in addition to earning a profit. The number of benefit corporations in the U.S. has grown steadily since the first benefit-corporation legislation was passed in 2010. We now have benefit-corporation statutes in 35 states and the District of Columbia, and 5 more states are working on it.
B Corp Certification
In Oregon, as in most states with this legislation, benefit companies are required to assess themselves annually against a third-party standard to ensure they are creating a positive impact. There are numerous third-party standards to choose from; Aligned Law has chosen the B Impact Assessment, which is governed by the nonprofit B Lab™. The B Impact Assessment evaluates how your company’s operations and business model impact your workers, community, environment, and clients or customers.
Aligned Law is also taking the extra step of becoming a Certified B Corporation™. Certifying as a B Corp™ goes beyond product- or service-level certification. B Corp Certification is the only certification that measures a company’s entire social and environmental performance.
From your supply chain and input materials to your charitable giving and employee benefits, B Corp Certification proves your business is meeting the highest standards of verified performance. We are excited to be a part of this movement. B Corps are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine what business success means, and to build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.
