Western is extremely proud to announce that Pacific Northwest Transportation Services (PNWTS) is now a certified B Corporation! They are the first and only bus company in North America to achieve this distinction.
B Corp (B Lab) is a non-profit organization that works with companies worldwide on a mission to change the economy to benefit all people, communities, and the planet. Getting B Corp certified means that PNWTS is meeting the high standards of verified performance, accountability, and transparency on factors from employee benefits and charitable giving to supply chain practices.
To meet the performance requirement, a company must earn a minimum, verified score of 80 points on the B Impact Assessment, which examines a company’s overall impact on its workers, community, customers, and environment. And B Corps need to recertify every three years. This is a great opportunity to measure the company’s impact and improvements implemented in the last few years.
PNWTS journey to becoming certified has been their goal for over two years and they’ve worked hard to measure, track, and improve their impact to achieve certification. This is just the beginning, and Western is pleased to support PNWTS on their journey.
