BOSTON, Sept. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Keene Advisors, the socially responsible investment bank, is honored to announce that it has become a Certified B Corporation™, joining Patagonia, Ben & Jerry's, and a community of more than 1,800 other companies committed to using business as a force for good. B Corporation™ certification is available only to companies that meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability. This certification affirms Keene Advisors' high standard of social and environmental performance in an industry that is not normally known for trustworthiness, compassion, or good corporate citizenship.
Keene Advisors was founded in July 2015 to unite two passions: providing clients with outstanding advice on complex corporate finance transactions, and being a catalyst for positive, lasting change in the world. Keene Advisors defines its social mission as caring for people, sharing profits and minimizing environmental impact. For Keene Advisors, caring for people means creating an environment for employee partners to lead happy, healthy and fulfilled lives, and volunteering time to support civic and charitable organizations. Keene Advisors has a profit sharing plan for employees and has committed to donate one-quarter of profits to charitable organizations. Keene Advisors minimizes environmental impact by measuring and reducing carbon output, practicing responsible consumption, and using smart business practices to reduce waste.
Clients who work with a purpose-driven, socially responsible investment bank benefit from a higher standard of honesty, accountability and transparency. They can be confident that their investment bank is truly committed to their success. "Our purpose-driven employees are more passionate and engaged, leading to better service and a greater commitment to our clients' success," said Travis Borden, Founder and President of Keene Advisors. "Our team is relentless in pursuit of success for clients, and in our effort to be catalysts for positive, lasting change in the world," he said.
By becoming a Certified B Corporation™, Keene Advisors joins an amazing community of fellow B Corporations that are committed to using business as a force for good. "We are proud to join the B Corporation community and hope to make a meaningful contribution to the movement by helping to level the playing field for B Corporations, providing them with the same access to capital and high quality financial advice we provide to conventional corporations," said Travis. Keene Advisors merges the experience of a large Wall Street investment bank, the focus and independence of a boutique firm, and the passion and commitment of a Certified B Corporation™.
