Boston, 19 March 2024 – We are thrilled to announce that Vera Solutions has achieved B Corporation recertification, marking our fifth time re-committing to a community of socially driven companies leveraging business as a force for good.

“Sustainability is one of Vera’s core values and we consider this in everything we do. The B Corp certification is a practical way to track our efforts on our sustainability journey and provides us with standards against which to benchmark and improve our operations. It’s empowering to be part of a strong, global collective working towards improving the world through better business practices.”

What does it mean to be a certified B Corporation?

B Corps are mission-driven companies that balance purpose and profit. The B Corp Certification verifies that businesses meet high standards of performance, accountability, and transparency on factors from employee benefits and charitable giving to supply chain practices. Certified companies undergo a thorough examination of business practices, focusing on both environmental and social impact. To recertify as a B Corp, Vera Solutions met a high-performance standard within these impact areas, exhibited transparency about our performance, and made a legal commitment as a Benefit Corporation to be accountable to all stakeholders, not just shareholders.

“I am proud to work for a company that aligns with my values which are to contribute to the greater good whilst caring for the environment in a time of climate crisis. Vera Solutions is helping change makers have a positive impact in the world whilst making it a priority to reduce harm to the environment by conforming to B Corp. It gives more meaning to my working life knowing that my efforts are contributing to great causes whilst treading lightly on the natural world”.

How Vera Solutions upholds its B Corp Commitment

This year marks Vera’s 5th consecutive year as a Certified B Corp. During this time, we have made some notable changes in our business practices, aligning with B Lab’s standards and best practices for socially responsible companies. Some examples:

  • We implemented a fair, predictable, and transparent compensation model across our global employee base, with a commitment to Equal Work for Equal Pay.
  • We applied socially responsible, progressive policies to foster a healthy and engaged workforce, including equitable parental leave for parents of any gender (including adoption leave), a sabbatical program available to all staff, and our Rising Leaders leadership development initiative.
  • We aligned efforts to being Net Zero by 2030.
  • We offset our estimated carbon footprint with noteworthy partners.
  • We initiated a working committee, the Green Team, driving internal engagement and education campaigns on environmental efforts.

“Ever since the beginning of my career, I’ve always wanted to work with purpose. That’s why I’m grateful to be a part of the B Corp ecosystem, which has opened my eyes to a new world of opportunities. I’m proud to mention that Vera has been recertified as a B-Corp which is not an easy process. I’ve had experience supporting other organizations through this process and can attest to the hard work and dedication required. Thus, being recognized as agents of transformation once again fills us with immense pride.”

In recent years, Vera staff have also participated in various B Corp events and initiatives, including serving on the B Local Boston board, supporting the planning of BLD New England Conferences, and joining roundtable discussions connecting B Corp representatives across industries to share best practices.

In addition to our work supporting over 420 social sector organizations to become more transparent, accountable, and effective, we are proud to uphold our commitment to operating sustainably and responsibly in every aspect of our business.
