Scottsdale, Arizona (PRWEB) August 17, 2012
In recognition of high performance standards, Journey Healing Centers (http://journeycenters.com) is proud to share they just received a B Corporation Certification for their world-class substance abuse treatment centers. Certified B Corps are a relatively new type of corporation, which uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. Since 2002, Journey Healing Centers has provided solutions to the millions of people worldwide struggling with drug and alcohol addiction, along with giving back to the community on a regular basis.
When asked about this B Corporation Certification and their corporate culture, CEO Josh Lannon shared, “Journey Healing Centers is a mission driven organization. To join our company is to take on a lifestyle transformation and commitment to personal development. We resonate with what B Lab is taking a stand for and we are proud to support the movement!”
Certified B Corporations have three key criteria: 1) meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance; 2) legally expand their corporate responsibilities to include consideration of stakeholder interests; and 3) build collective voice through the power of the unifying B Corporation brand. As of August 2012, there are over 580 Certified B Corporations from over 60 industries, representing a diverse multi-billion marketplace. As a result, individuals will have greater economic opportunity, society will move closer to achieving a positive environmental footprint, more people will be employed in great places to work, and have built stronger communities at home and across the world. http://www.bcorporation.net/b-corporations
