Rivanna Report » B Corp
Random ramblings and occasional rants about awards, recognition, climate, community, and business as a force for good.
The relationship between the Forest Stewardship Council and Rivanna Natural Designs is as old as our company itself. FSC is the reason that we became a wood products company.
We are delighted to announce that Gretchen Wirth (left) has been granted a group of non-voting shares in Rivanna, making her a partial owner of the company. This share grant is our company's first step toward greater employee ownership.
As a Certified B Corporation and a Virginia Benefit Corporation, we are committed to transparency and accountability in business. To that end, we publish and maintain a statement of beneficial ownership on our company's Governance page, and we encourage all businesses to do the same.
The only thing better than making awards is winning them after we've made them! This week we we won one of our own awards.
