Why are we a B Corporation?

Helsinki Capital Partners (HCP) achieved a B Corp Certification in May last year. B Corporations meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance and expand their corporate responsibilities to include consideration of stakeholder interests.

During the international #BCorpMonth of February it’s time to look back at why we decided to apply for the certification and what have we learned as a member of the global movement of 2200+ B Corps.

Why B ?

Why B ?

”The B Corp Certification offers us concrete tools to systematically assess our sustainability performance and make our performance public. The certification separates the authentic mission-based companies from the green and whitewashing masses”, summarizes Tommi Kemppainen, the CEO of Helsinki Capital Partners.

HCP was found ten years ago based on the value proposition Asset management to be proud of.™. Our mission for the next ten years is not only to make profitable, honest and transparent asset management but also to be best for the world.

“As a B Corp, we have more resources than before to continue redefining the financial sector and the business world”

B Corporation network has provided us plenty of chances to get to know like-minded companies and individuals. Inspired by the B Corp Summit in Cascais, HCP organized Best for the World Summit in Finland to bring together people and companies, who want to use business as a force for good.

The warm reception of the summit proved that there’s a need for a low-threshold forum. Since last October HCP has hosted #HCPSPIRIT x #BCorp Workshops, where mission-based businesses such as Tarvas Footwear, Samuji, Kolme Kaverin Jäätelö, and Pave Arkkitehdit have exchanged ideas on corporate responsibility.

HCP will attend to the next B Corp community meeting in Copenhagen and the Summer Summit in Amsterdam. The next #HCPSPIRIT x #BCorp Workshop is scheduled for April and the next Best for the World Summit for later in Autumn.
