Mills Achieves B Corporation Status - Using the Power of Business to Solve Social and Environmental Problems

VANCOUVER, June 5, 2012 /CNW/ - Mills, a family owned office supplies distributor, is proud to announce that it has achieved Certified B Corporation status as designated by the non-profit organization B Lab (www.bcorporation.net). Mills is the first Office Supply Company in Canada to achieve this status.

According to Brad Mills, CEO of Mills, "While any company can purchase carbon offsets, we are now being held to a higher standard. We must consider the impact our decisions will have on our employees, customers, community, suppliers and environment.  Being a part of this community will give us the framework to measure our successes and determine where we need improvement."

To become a Certified B Corp, companies must meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance. There are currently over 533 Certified B Corporations from sixty industries, representing $3.11 Billion in collective revenues.
