Kudos – Bohlsen Group

Kudos to the Bohlsen Group, an Indianapolis-based public relations and advertising agency, for being the first company incorporated in Indiana to achieve B Corp certification. The designation places it among an elite, vetted group of companies committed to being a force for good and creating value for society beyond profit alone. The certification meets a growing consumer demand as more than nine in 10 Americans look to companies to support social or environmental issues in some capacity, according to the 2013 Social Impact Study.

Called “the highest standard for socially responsible business” by Inc. magazine, B Corp certification recognizes companies who voluntarily meet standards of transparency, accountability and social impact. More than 1,200 companies across 41 countries and 121 industries are B Corp certified, including Warby Parker, Etsy, Ben & Jerry’s and Patagonia.
