Thank you for Recognizing Accerta as a 2021 Best for the World™
14 Jul 2021
It is an honour to be distinguished as a 2021 Best for the World™ B Corp for our corporate governance. Out of 4,000 Certified B Corporations worldwide, we are among the top 5% of B Corps of our size in the category of governance. This award recognizes the gains Accerta made over the years to establish well-defined, transparent and disciplined processes that enhance the reputation of the governments we collaborate with and build confidence in the services we deliver. As a certified B-Corp since 2017, we are fully committed to continuous improvement and using business as a force for good.
Our B-Corp certification is a stamp of trust. It signifies that we meet the highest social, environmental, accountability, and transparency standards. We are part of a movement of like-minded B Corporations across 77 countries and 153 industries that is unified by one common goal: transforming the global economy to benefit all people, communities, and the planet. When Accerta first achieved B-Corp certification, we committed to this movement and tirelessly work toward improving our certification score and further entrenching B Corp principles into our corporate culture.
Our government customers understand that Accerta successfully balances the business, social and environmental impact of all decisions to optimize our performance and deliver reliable services to vulnerable and marginalized populations across Canada. The Best for the World recognition lets the rest of the world know what we are made of and gives governments another reason to trust us with their administrative needs.
The global pandemic put our practices to the test. We seamlessly pivoted our operations to meet evolving needs. Healthcare practitioners, government officials and the public received seamless, uninterrupted service from Accerta. The strength of our governance program allowed us to continue to meet the demands of our privacy and security program and every standard in our robust quality assurance program. Our strong governance structure served us and our stakeholders well.
We’re just getting started! In the spirit of collaboration, we will be sharing some of the best practices associated with the corporate governance policies that made us stand out from the rest and earned us the moniker of Best for the World!
Thank you, B Corp! Thank you, all of our government partners for entrusting us with your programs! And, thank you Accerta employees, for making it all possible!
