STATEMENT OF ANY CONNECTION BETWEEN THE ORGANIZATION THAT ESTABLISHED THE THIRD-PARTY STANDARD, OR ITS DIRECTORS, OFFICERS OR ANY HOLDER OF 5% OR MORE OF THE GOVERNANCE INTERESTS IN THE ORGANIZATION, AND THE BENEFIT CORPORATION OR ITS DIRECTORS, OFFICERS OR ANY HOLDER OF 5% OR MORE OF THE OUTSTANDING SHARES OF THE BENEFIT CORPORATION, INCLUDING FINANCIAL OR GOVERNANCE RELATIONSHIP WHICH MIGHT MATERIALLY AFFECT THE CREDIBILITY OF THE USE OF THE THIRD-PARTY STANDARD
Breckinridge is committed to act with the highest standards of purpose, accountability and transparency for all its stakeholders. In order for us to observe our company on the continuum—that is, measuring and challenging our corporate sustainability efforts—it is imperative to us that the third-party standard remain independent and free of any material conflicts that could affect the credibility of the standard. To that end, we selected to become a certified B Corp because there is no connection between Breckinridge and B Lab, the non-profit organization that created and awards B Corp certifications to for-profit organizations.
