PeaceWorks Technology Solutions Reaffirms Commitment to Use the Power of Business to Solve Social and Environmental Problems

March 12, 2015: Waterloo, ON

Today, PeaceWorks Technology Solutions, an IT consulting firm that provides mission driven technology solutions, has been granted B Corporation recertification.

  This respected designation is awarded to organizations that use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems and meet higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability.  

PeaceWorks originally achieved certification in 2011.  According to PeaceWorks’ CEO, Joanne Young Evans, “As one of the founding Canadian B Corps we are proud to continue to be a part of a community that is redefining success in business.  PeaceWorks has always used our IT expertise to serve our clients who are making real differences in this world through social justice initiatives, community involvement and environmental sustainability.  Our relationship with the B Corp community keeps us accountable to our clients, our staff, and our community.  It ensures that we retain our values in all areas of work.”

PeaceWorks Technology Solutions, located in Waterloo, ON, provides IT support and software services to local organizations, as well as to international agencies.  With the majority of its client base in the not for profit sector, PeaceWorks understands the need for businesses to become more involved with supporting the community, the environment and the fight for social justice.

To become a Certified B Corporation, B Lab, the non-profit that certifies and supports B Corporations, conducted a rigorous evaluation of PeaceWorks and concluded that its IT services met the comprehensive performance standards to qualify for certification. PeaceWorks continues to be represented with more than 1000 other Certified B Corporations from 33 countries and over 60 industries.  PeaceWorks is legally required, in its incorporation documents, to have its stakeholders consider the impact of its decisions on its employees, suppliers, community, consumers, and environment.

As an organization that believes its success is measured by the impact of its clients, PeaceWorks is uniquely qualified to be a B Corp and has consistently achieved “Best for the World” and “Best for Workers” honours from B Lab.

PeaceWorks continues to operate with the trust and integrity its clients have learned to count on and, as Young Evans states, “looks forward to seeing more and more Canadian organizations follow our lead and use business power to solve social and environmental issues.”
