For the management at Trico Homes, B Corp status is something that has been desired for a long time. However, it wasn’t until July 23, 2012 that B Corporation status was finally attained. Trico Homes Calgary is thrilled to have B Corporation status, especially considering the fact that there are only 530 certified B Corporations in the world. The achievement is especially noteworthy considering that Trico Homes is the first certified B Corporation Canadian homebuilder.
For Trico Homes Calgary, B Corporation status didn’t require altering the core identity of the company. The company believes that the guiding principles behind Trico Homes were already in line with the qualifications for meeting B Corporation status. Joining Trico Homes with the non-profit organization B Corporation was a natural union. Trico Homes believes for a company to have a future it must be a leader in responsible corporate behavior.
Trico Homes is committed to triple bottom line development, while being profitable is important, so is the social and environmental bottom line. A sustainable B Corporation strives to maximize stakeholder value within means. Trico will continue to engage in practices that provide benefits to customers, employees, trades, suppliers and the communities we live and work in.
Trico Homes understands there is more to building better communities than just constructing quality crafted homes, a responsible builder needs to support communities and partner with organizations that develop programs for education, recreation, charity and multiculturalism.
Trico Homes is involved in a variety of social, multicultural, non-profit, and educational programs. Involvement in a variety of non-profit causes is an essential part of becoming qualified to be a B Corporation. In 2012 alone Trico Homes Calgary is sponsoring/has sponsored the 2012 Trico Homes International Fireworks Festival, the 2012 Advancing Canadian Entrepreneurship (ACE) National Exposition, and the 2012 Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) National Exposition.
Needless to say, Trico Homes Calgary is deeply involved in the recreational, cultural, educational, and charitable efforts dear to Canadians all over the country. Their recent qualification as a B Corporation is a formal way of acknowledging the goodwill that Trico Homes Calgary regularly extends in Calgary and the greater mid and western Canada region.
