Eco-Friendly Game Company Becomes Ottawa’s First B-Certified Corporation
Game Developer RocketOwl Inc. is Ottawa’s first B-Certified company, thanks to an ongoing commitment to social and environmental responsibility.
Ottawa, Ontario (PRWEB) September 30, 2013
RocketOwl Inc., an Ottawa, ON based social & mobile game developer, is the city’s first B-Certified company, where the B stands for “benefit.” The designation is awarded to companies with an uncompromising commitment to sustainable business and corporate responsibility. RocketOwl is passionate about environmental stewardship and social change, and develops games that change the way we view, interact and learn about global issues. They have engaged thousands of players from all across the world to connect and learn through play, and have made significant financial and social contributions to environmental causes.
B Lab, a non-profit organization in Pennsylvania, started the B Corp designation in order to recognize companies that are dedicated to people as well as profit. The free, six-week certification process evaluates many areas, including environment, employees and community, and ensures corporations continue to meet high standards for social and environmental accountability. RocketOwl co-founder Jasvinder Obhi says the certification is “an absolute advantage for us that other gaming companies don’t have.” He notes that, “B Corps have far more credibility when expanding into foreign markets than other companies. They are respected and invited worldwide because of their responsible practices.”
The B Corp certification is part of a growing trend towards responsible, ethical business practices and a focus on the impact of corporations. “There is global demand to expand the scope of return so all stakeholders gain value,” says Obhi. “Business is no longer just looking after a subset of society but looking after all society and doing it simultaneously. This focus enables you to grow a lot faster – and smarter.”
