Sensiba San Filippo Becomes a Certified B Corporation

Pleasanton, Calif.-based Sensiba San Filippo LLP announced that it has become the first accounting firm in California to achieve B Corp certification.

This designation places SSF among a vetted group of companies committed to being a force for good and creating value for society beyond profit alone. To become certified, companies must undergo and pass a rigorous assessment by B Lab that evaluates their mission, employment practices, governance structure, social impact and environmental stewardship.

The certification meets a growing consumer demand as more Americans look to companies to support social and environmental issues in some capacity. More than 2,100 companies across 50 countries and 130 industries are B Corp certified. Called “the highest standard for socially responsible business” by Inc. magazine, B Corp certification recognizes companies who voluntarily meet standards of transparency, accountability, and social impact.

“Sensiba San Filippo exists to help people. We use our professional and personal skills to improve the lives of our families, our communities, our clients and our colleagues,” says John Sensiba, MP of Sensiba San Filippo. “Through our service to others, our commitment to integrity, stewardship of the environment, and kindness, we intend to better the lives of those we touch directly. Indirectly, we strive to be a positive force in the global community. The B Corp certification helps us better assess how our core values are aligned with our daily operations and where to improve.”
