Jade Software Obtains B Corp Certification

IT'S OFFICIAL! We are now a certified b corporation

We are proud to announce that Jade Software is now officially a certified B Corporation™, participating in creating a sustainable, inclusive and equitable economy with other purpose-driven companies seeking to make a difference in their communities. 

B Lab is the nonprofit network transforming the global economy to benefit all people, communities, and the planet by balancing profit and purpose.  They certify B Corporations™, which are companies that meet high standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. 

B Corp Certification means that a company has been verified as meeting B Lab’s high standards for social and environmental impact, that it has made a legal commitment to stakeholder governance, and that it is demonstrating that accountability and transparency by disclosing this record of performance in a public B Corp profile. 

“We have always been driven by our purpose of assisting companies to transform and accelerate growth through using technology to remove barriers along the way. The B Corp framework enables us to check and measure the impact of that strategy in the specific ESG areas“ says Geoff Walker, Head of Finance and Sustainability at Jade.”   

“We also note increasing numbers of customers are seeking more information on our sustainability practices, to ensure we are operating responsibly. While young people who are looking to embark on their careers are researching companies that demonstrate a commitment to more mindful business practices.” 

CEO Justin Mercer adds, “As a company we are on a sustainability journey of many steps. This is building on Jade’s 40-year history of being a strong community player and doing the best we can for our people. Today this includes more broader measures including strong governance and minimising our environmental impact. 

We appreciated the structure and independent certification process that B-Corp offered, and this has allowed us to review and map where Jade currently sits in our journey. This is fully supported from the Board downwards, and we will continue to regularly review and implement strategies and initiatives aligned with this certification.” 



B Corp™ is a not-for-profit organisation that is developing a global network of businesses who are committed to balancing profit and purpose.  

The B Corp framework independently measures and publishes a company’s performance against environmental, social and governance measures (ESG).  

Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corp businesses are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.
