Directors of a company have a fiduciary duty to act in good faith in the best interests of the company and its members (shareholders) as a whole. In performing this duty, they should have regard to the company’s long term interests (including its reputation) as well as short term interests.
ARA believes that dedication to the interests of other key stakeholders – clients, employees, suppliers and contractors, the community, the environment – is fundamental to discharging its primary obligation as a company and ensuring its long-term success.
A B Corporation commits to a process of independent assessment and scrutiny, that it meets the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency and legal accountability.
In 2018, ARA successfully obtained certification as a B Corporation.
