BLVR Becomes a Certified B Corporation
BLVR is proud to announce their B Corp Certification. An independent branding agency that empowers brands to fearlessly live out their beliefs, BLVR meets the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose.
“By joining over 3,000 like-minded companies on a global scale, we are redefining the standards of ethical business practices and social responsibility—creating a positive impact in the lives of our team members and communities around the globe,” said Adam McWethy, COO and partner of BLVR. “B Corp Certification recognizes our purpose-driven efforts and reinforces our commitment to make a difference in the world.
Only 4% of the 120,000 companies who have taken the B Impact Assessment become certified. BLVR not only hit the threshold, but scored above and beyond the requirement. At its core, BLVR is passionate about using business to help make a difference in the world. They do this by selecting one humanitarian nonprofit each year and dedicating 10% of their profits to help fund their incredible work.
To celebrate their inaugural year as a B Corp, BLVR partnered with Love Does, an extraordinary organization started by New York Times best-selling author Bob Goff. Love Does brings light and joy to the world by fighting for human rights and providing education to children in conflict zones. BLVR’s donation helped fund nine (9) college scholarships for students in Northern Uganda through the Love Does Launch Program. In addition, BLVR designated funds to help support teachers at the Love Does Restore Leadership Academy who have been working hard to continue educating students amidst the effects of Covid-19.
“Using our resources to make the world a better and brighter place is something we at BLVR have always deeply believed in and been committed to,” said Scott Hancock, CEO of BLVR. “As business leaders, we all have a choice to make. We can either be givers or takers. We can be part of the problem or part of the solution. We can raise our own ship or we can use our time, talent, and treasure to help raise the ships of many. At BLVR, we stand for something bigger. We want to impact people’s lives for good and inspire a culture that shines a light on injustice, lifts up those who are less fortunate, and inspires others to leave the world better than they found it. By joining B Corp, we elevate our voice by standing together with so many other like-minded voices to create an even sweeter melody. This isn’t just a trend or a marketing ploy—it’s love in action. Let’s go!”
In 2021, BLVR plans to partner with Love, Light & Melody that is an organization created by Founder/Musician, Brad Corrigan (Member of Dispatch) that plans to help the vulnerable children of Nicaragua. This year, BLVR in addition to financial donations plans to use their teams talents to help the organization build out their brand and vision identity.
