Australia based Phocas Software, a business planning and analytics platform for sales, operations, and finance teams, announced that it has achieved B Corp Certification.
B Corp Certification requires a holistic review of a business’s social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency and is based on a vision of creating a community of for-profit companies committed to redefining business success.
“The planet and humanity have always been a concern of ours at Phocas, and now we’re making them our guideposts,” said Myles Glashier, co-founder and chief executive officer of Phocas. “We feel we are at the very beginning of a massive movement taking our business beyond just generating profits for our shareholders. We started this journey prior to becoming B Corp certified, and this now gives us the stamp of approval to be better corporate stewards.”
Caroline Thalund, head of sustainability for Phocas, notes, “I am so excited for the team at Phocas. I’ve had a lifelong passion for making the world a better place; this B Corp Certification is a great benchmark for Phocas’ current sustainability performance, but most importantly, it provides us with a roadmap of how to create the greatest impact locally and globally. I am truly honored to be a part of this team and the journey we have just begun.”
