Frank and Oak receives B-Corp certification


Montreal-based apparel brand Frank and Oak is a newly certified B
Corporation. This milestone reiterates the brand’s commitment to
sustainable development.

Companies who receive B Corp certification meet high standards of
social and environmental performance and transparency. Under the
certification, Frank and Oak will be legally required to consider the
impact of its decisions on the environment, community, its suppliers,
its workers and its consumers.

“With over 3,000 B Corps in 64 countries and 150 industries, these
inspiring companies are building a new economy that works for everyone
and for the long-term, upending shareholder primacy and reestablishing
stakeholder capitalism,” Kasha Huk, country manager of Canada for B
Lab, said in a statement. “The world needs more brands like Frank And
Oak who create real, long-term value for their customers, communities,
workers, suppliers, and the environment, alongside their
shareholders.”

Frank and Oak, which was founded in 2012 and offers apparel and
accessories for women and men, has worked thoroughly on its
sustainable goals in the last few years. The brand introduced its
first collection of clothing made from minimal impact processes and
materials in 2017, and this year it has completed a goal of producing
at least half of its products with sustainable materials and
methods.

The brand’s B Corp certification marks its guarantee to its
customers that it will balance transparency, purpose and actions.

“We’re proud to join the B Corp community and to be part of this
generational movement: A movement that aims to redefine the role of
business in society as an agent for good and progress,” said Ethan
Song, CEO and co-founder of Frank And Oak.
