PORTLAND, Maine – January 17, 2023 – Bristol Seafood announced today that it became a certified B Corp, making it a part of a global community of businesses that meet high standards of social and environmental impact.
B Corp Certification means that a company is verified as meeting B Lab’s high standards for social and environmental impact, that it made a legal commitment to stakeholder governance, and that it demonstrates accountability and transparency by disclosing this record of performance in a public B Corp profile.
“Our success over the last thirty years is built on investing in the betterment of our customers, workers, suppliers, environment, and community at large. We are proud to do our part in increasing seafood consumption in a way that meaningfully improves the lives of all our stakeholders” noted Peter Handy, President & CEO.
Stakeholder governance is a growing corporate governance alternative to shareholder primacy. B Corps make a commitment to consider the interests of all stakeholders in their business operations: workers, customers, vendors, communities, and the environment.
By certifying, B Corps step into a framework for continuous improvement. To maintain certification, companies must undertake the assessment and verification process every three years, demonstrating they are still meeting B Lab’s standards – which are themselves always improving, with continual input from expert stakeholders.
