As we step into B Corp Month, the theme “This Way Forward” resonates more strongly than ever. B Corp certification was never a destination, but an ongoing journey toward better business. We join B Lab and the global B Corp community to celebrate what it means to be a B Corp. We’re committed to growing our impact and showcasing that B Corp certification is an open invitation to continue down the path of sustainable and responsible business.

Our Commitment to a Sustainable Future: Principles & Guiding Themes

In our journey toward sustainability, we are guided by our sustainability roadmap. This roadmap embodies our commitment to the planet, our people, and our core principles.

OUR PLANET: Addressing the Climate Emergency & Emissions

The climate emergency is a daunting challenge, but it also presents an opportunity for innovation and leadership in sustainability. We are committed to rigorously managing climate-related risks and opportunities in our operations. Our strategy aims to lower both direct and indirect greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions globally in our offices by adopting practices such as switching to renewable energy sources for utilities. By setting ambitious emission reduction targets, we aim to significantly decrease our impact on the environment and foster a more sustainable future.

OUR PEOPLE: Cultivating Growth & Diversity

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

We believe that our strength lies in our diversity. Our efforts to cultivate a diverse, equitable, and inclusive work environment are designed to ensure equal opportunities and treatment for all team members. This commitment extends beyond our workplace policies, and influences our daily actions and decision-making processes at the leadership level.

Team Growth & Prosperity

We are dedicated to the growth and prosperity of the Assent team. This encompasses recruitment, retention, and development practices to ensure our workforce can adapt to and thrive amid organizational changes. We are committed to fair compensation, comprehensive team member benefits, and supporting our team through corporate sustainability initiatives that align with internationally accepted labor standards.

OUR CUSTOMERS: Ensuring Privacy, Data Security, & Well-Being

Customer Privacy & Data Security

In an era where data breaches are all too common, protecting our customers’ privacy and securing their data is paramount. Our approach to information technology security is designed to safeguard private corporate information, critical information systems, and networks from any security breaches.

Customer Well-Being

The well-being of our customers is at the forefront of our mission. We strive to meet and exceed customer expectations, ensuring our customers are satisfied and can protect their brand reputation. Our commitment to treating customers fairly and honestly is reflected in every interaction.

OUR PRINCIPLES: Upholding Ethical Standards & Human Rights

Ethical Standards

Our business is guided by a moral code of conduct that encompasses ethical considerations, lawful behavior, and compliance practices. We manage risks and opportunities with a keen focus on maintaining high ethical standards in every aspect of our strategic and operational management.

Human Rights

We believe in the fundamental rights and freedoms inherent to all human beings. Our efforts are aimed at ensuring these rights are upheld, allowing individuals to live with dignity, freedom, equality, justice, and peace.

As we anticipate the release of our annual sustainability report in April, we look forward to sharing the progress we’ve made and the steps we’re taking to not just meet, but exceed, our B Corp certification standards. This report will detail our actions and future plans, reinforcing our commitment to sustainability and the well-being of our planet, people, and principles.

Sustainability: The Core of Our Business

At the heart of Assent is our unwavering commitment to transforming supply chains for the better. Recognizing that traditional supply chains often overlook sustainability, we’ve spent over a decade redefining what it means to be sustainable. 

Our approach is not just about compliance — it’s about changing the way manufacturers bring their products to the world. By offering robust data collection and deep supply chain visibility, we enable manufacturers across a variety of industries like aerospace and defense, automotive, and electronics to make informed, ethical, and sustainable decisions.

Looking Ahead

As B Corp Month 2024 continues, we’re reminded that our journey toward sustainability is far from over. It’s a path we walk together, with every step taking us closer to a more sustainable and equitable world. Our B Corp certification is a testament to our commitment, but it’s the daily actions, the relentless pursuit of improvement, and the collective efforts of our community that truly define us.

Join us as we continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible, making positive impacts on the world’s supply chains. Stay tuned for our detailed sustainability roadmap in our annual report, where we’ll share our accomplishments and our vision for the future.

As we journey forward, we invite you to be part of this movement, embracing the principles that B Corp embodies. Together, let’s demonstrate the power of business as a force for good, paving the way for a sustainable future for all.
