PATHFINDER consults with Business, Academia and Policy for innovative solutions in Sustainable Development. We create solutions to enable the world’s most vulnerable through our unique three-pronged approach: by simultaneously influencing social entrepreneurship, academics, and policy.
Our mission is to perpetuate solutions that protect and enable the world’s most vulnerable. We work to achieve this by enabling local social entrepreneurs so that they may run successful sustainable businesses. We work with academic institutions to create awareness, educate and mainstream the study of social entrepreneurship. And we drive lasting change with policy makers.
We are committed to working towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. While all of our current projects have objectives that align with one or more Goals, we are dedicated to the overarching agenda of realizing global human rights, achieving gender equality, and peace and security for all.
Our unique model of engagement has now been trademarked in Canada:
WE’RE A BCORP!
PATHFINDER became a Certified B Corporation in 2018. 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.
PATHFINDER was certified by the non-profit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. We’ve evaluated how our practices impact our employees, our community, the environment, and our customers.
Today, there are over 2,200 Certified B Corps around the globe, including Patagonia, Ben & Jerry’s and Kickstarter. We are proud to join them in redefining success in business, so that one day everyone uses business as a force for good.
