Montpelier, VT – September 15, 2021.

“We’re honored and thankful to be recognized as a Best for the World B Corp after just a year as a B Corp,” said Todd Walker, Founder and Senior Advisor. In the over fifteen years we have specialized in socially responsible investing we have always put our clients’ financial and social goals first, including working for our shared environment, which is the essence of the B Corp mission. And now we must all work harder as Climate Change has become undeniable.”
