Los Angeles B Corporations Join Together to Form B Local LA
Falcon Waterfree Technologies’ Marketing Director, Andrea Chase, elected Head Chair for B Local Los Angeles- a B Corporation community devoted to knowledge sharing through best practices and creating a more sustainable community in Los Angeles.
Los Angeles, January 1, 2016 It is no secret that B Corporations are better companies – better for workers, better for communities and better for the environment. As the B Corporation movement has gained traction, communities are uniting to tackle complex socio-environmental problems. In an effort to better our local Los Angeles community, Falcon Waterfree Technologies is excited to announce that our very own Andrea Chase, Marketing Director, has been elected the Chair of the newly formed B Local Los Angeles B Corporation community. Founded with the mission to “Improve the vitality, happiness and growth of the Los Angeles B Corporation community by sharing knowledge and collaborating on best practices that inspire change.” Andrea, along with Jade Jeffries from fellow B Corp Dogeared and Derek Hydon from fellow B Corp Ma Cher, will be working to unite all Los Angeles B Corporations to share ideas, inspire each other and combine forces to make a larger, more sustainable impact on our local community. Quarterly meetings will focus on each of the B Corporation pillars: Environment, Community, Corporate Governance, and Work force best practices, and will assist member B Corporations in acquiring the tools and learning needed to help their companies succeed in moving themselves and Los Angeles towards a more sustainable future.
B Corporations believe that in the journey to create a better future, organizations must use the power of business as a force for good. As a B Corp, companies are set to meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, legal accountability, and must aspire to use the power of their business to solve social and environmental concerns. We, at Falcon, were founded on the principle of ecological conservation, and sustainability is embedded across our business’s operations and daily practices. We are working to help the planet and help everyone on it thrive, in fact our water conserving products have saved an estimated 20 Billion Gallons of water.
Although Falcon was awarded the B Corporation Best for the World: Environment Award in 2015, we believe that corporate sustainability is a journey with no final destination. Therefore we work tirelessly to continually identify innovations that further reduce our environmental footprint and fulfill our vision of creating technology-driven products that conserve our Earth’s precious fresh water supply. We are so excited to join together with other like-minded and inspirational businesses in order to create substantial positive change in our local Los Angeles community and in our respective industries.
Founded in 2000, Los Angeles-based Falcon Waterfree Technologies is the sustainability and technology leader in the development of water conservation solutions for the commercial restroom. Falcon Waterfree Technologies proudly is a certified B Corporation.
