The Accerta Blog
Welcome to The Accerta Blog, a resource that aims to provide insight into emerging health care trends, Accerta’s evolving mission, and more. Updated monthly, the Accerta Blog is designed to serve you better - providing knowledge, answering questions, and keeping you up to date on the state of Canadian health care.
It’s been some time since we wrote about what it means to be a B Corp, so this month we’re excited to bring you the first installment in Accerta’s series on Canadian B Corps. In addition to sharing profiles of some organizations shaping the future of sustainable business in Canada, we’d like to offer you some resources for starting your own B Corp journey, whether that involves certifying your own business or practice, seeking out companies with values similar to your own to support, or finding your next job opportunity at a company that prioritizes its people.
Technology plays a major role in how Canadians live their lives – professionally and personally. Innovative technologies have changed the way we consume news, the way we communicate, and the ways we experience the world.
Technology has also transformed the way we access and receive health care. From GPS navigation in ambulances to the digitization of medical records and beyond, people can live longer and healthier lives thanks to those who have invested time, money, and energy into improving life quality.
What is a B Corp?
The Certified B Corporations network defines B Corps as for-profit companies certified by the non-profit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. The B Lab is a third party evaluation system.
