Project Overview:

Hog Island Oyster Company (HIOC) was interested in becoming a Certified B Corporation. LIFT helped HIOC maximize their score on the B Corp assessment, submit all required documentation, ensured compliance during the review process, and kept the project on track for certification.

Client Results:

  • Key insights into the company's overall social and environmental performance
  • Conversion to a benefit corporation, which will ensure that HIOC's mission is protected after the original founders retire
  • Valuable policies, procedures, and systems. This included an environmental purchasing policy, an employee performance review, a community service policy, a whistle blowing policy, an employee satisfaction survey, and an annual sustainability report
LIFT’s guidance, feedback, and pre-existing templates for the B Corp certification process were very helpful. They even went the extra mile by attending our board meeting and fielding questions from our board members about our legal transition to a benefit corporation.
