Avenue Announces B Corp™ Certification
B Corp™ Certification Highlights Digital Marketing Agency's Commitment to Community and Environmental Stewardship
B Corps are a new type of company that uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. B Corp certification is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk. Avenue was certified by the non-profit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. The B Corp certification process evaluates how the firm's progressive business practices impact the Avenue's employees, community, environment, and customers.
"This certification provides reassurance to our clients, employees and community that Avenue will continue to do the right thing," says CEO, Anna Hutson. "We are proud to be a certified B Corp."

"Not only do we partner with non-profits on their digital marketing efforts, but the Avenue team also spends one day per quarter out of the office volunteering with our selected Charity of Choice. Through these quarterly partnerships, we help local non-profits level-up their digital marketing programs to more effectively support their long-term organizational goals," says Hutson.
Beyond this program, Avenue's team members are encouraged to seek out and volunteer individually with organizations they are passionate about and are given work hours to do so. Avenue's leadership also serves on a host of local boards making a difference in the community, including the statewide non-profit SMART (https://www.getsmartoregon.org/
