LOS ANGELES and GREENVILLE, S.C., May 22, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On May 5th, 2017 creative agency Brains on Fire officially obtained the Benefit Corporation (B Corp) designation, joining a growing community of nearly 2,200 Certified B Corps representing more than 50 countries and over 130 industries.
B Corps are for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. Brains on Fire shares the distinction with companies including Method Products, GOOD, The Honest Company, Ben and Jerry's and Patagonia.
"Brains on Fire is a creative company that believes in the power of human connection," said Robbin Phillips, President. "We partner with bold brands and organizations, both nonprofit and for profit, that want to grow so they can do more good in the world. Our B Corporation status is a sign to the world that our actions are aligned with our words."
Founded in 1999, Brains on Fire has a long history of working with brands and organizations invested in doing good in the world -- from breaking the stigma associated with addiction to saving the lives of adoptable horses to raising awareness about child sex trafficking. Becoming a B Corporation is a natural progression in the agency's ongoing effort to demonstrate that it is not only a company that talks about doing good, but also actively pursues and embraces every opportunity to be better, work better and do better.
"Our B Corporation designation is a reflection of the creative, conscious, kind and generous people that we work with every day," said Benjamin Hart, Principal Manager of Brains on Fire's Los Angeles office. "We are thrilled to move our company towards a model that not only benefits shareholders, but also creates prosperity and good for our employees, our clients and our communities. This is the beginning of a new phase in our ongoing effort to become a more sustainable, conscious and equitable company."
