Our Community Commitments
Light Trail is Canada’s First Benefit Company
Light Trail became a Benefit Company in July 2020. In addition to certification, we pioneered the legal process to reincorporate and further committed Light Trail to conduct business in a responsible and sustainable way. This embedded those same values and purpose within our legal framework.
The legislation came into effect in BC on 30th June 2020 and was the first of its kind in Canada. Light Trail led the way in the Province and joins companies in over 35 States in the USA and other countries around the world that have enacted a similar legal practice to create a solid foundation for long-term mission alignment.
Light Trail is a Certified B Corp
Being a Certified B Corp means that we are committed to using our business as a force for good while meeting rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.
Originally certified in 2015, we continue to re-certify andwork on improvements within our business. Visit our B Corp page to learn about the process, and to find out how Light Trail Consulting can help your organization introduce better ways to improve your impact and balance purpose, profit and responsible practices that are good for the planet and your people.
Light Trail is a Member of 1% For The Planet
In recognition of these efforts, we became a member of 1% For The Planet, joining many other businesses as the engines of positive environmental change. 1% For The Planet’s mission is to build, support and activate an alliance of businesses that are financially committed to creating a healthier planet. Through this organization, Light Trail donates 1% of its revenue to connect and support others in their work to create a new environmental legacy.
We Are Part Of The Community
Ingrained within the DNA of our company is a commitment to our community. We love working with community service organizations and through our governance practices ensure that all Light Trail employees pledge to a minimum of 10 hours of community service work each month.
Aligned with this pledge, Light Trail supports Brightside Community Homes Foundation through our volunteer work. Brightside is one of Vancouver’s longest-standing non-profit societies that is focused on building resilient communities for those who struggle to meet the demands of market housing. Brightside provides homes to over 1,000 residents to build a future where people of all income levels have a home within a vibrant and healthy community.
If you’re interested in introducing or expanding your positive impact within your community, we’d be happy to help
Greg and Steve at Light Trail were able to bring members together around common goals, clarify purpose and resources and develop processes that put our teams in a great position to implement. They bring complementary skills to managing teams, and unlike many ‘cookie-cutter’ strategic planners, truly are committed to understanding the values and principles of the organization and working with the team until they are comfortable with completing the implementation. I would highly recommend Light Trail if your organization is wanting to better understand optimal function/ structure relationships and achieve its goals.
