(March 8, 2021) – Do you know about B Corp certification? Not you yet? The members of the LGM Financial Group team will ensure this in the coming weeks.

This leader in financial and insurance products for dealers in Canada has just announced its commitment to its new social vocation: to accelerate responsible mobility for all. This behavior is intended, among other things, to help the British Columbia company to transfer its assets to an investment model that integrates environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria. But also to help him obtain his B Corp certification.

Barely 230 Canadian companies currently hold this certification granted to for-profit organizations that meet societal, environmental, governance and public transparency requirements.

This social vocation cannot be obtained in the blink of an eye. To achieve its objectives, LGM has been collaborating since 2018 with the Social Purpose Institute (SPI). This organization works with businesses across Canada to intensify the concept of social vocation and define their purpose beyond sales or products. It helps them define their values ​​and determine the role they can play in contributing to society and the common good, at the heart of everything they do.

We recognize both the importance of mobility within society as well as the issues that have arisen since the advent of the automobile, ”said Drew Collier, CEO of LGM. LGM, he says, seeks to be a catalyst for change in the automotive industry in order to have a positive impact on society and the environment.

“The work we have done with SPI on our social vocation,” he continues, “has allowed us to adapt as an organization and focus on what we believe will bring about the most change in these important areas. “

In the eyes of LGM’s senior management, there are many opportunities to make positive changes in the automotive industry for the benefit of consumers and society. “We hope we can inspire our partners in the automotive industry to identify these opportunities and act on them,” says Drew Collier.
