Scottish-based VC Firm Par Equity Announce B Corp Certification

Scottish-based venture capital (VC) firm Par Equity — which has invested £146 million in 77 companies in the North of the UK — has today announced that it has become an accredited B Corporation.

B Corp certification is a designation for the social and environmental performance of a business that is meeting high standards of verified performance, accountability, and transparency on a range of factors — from employee benefits and charitable giving, to supply chain practices and input materials.

While B Corp accreditation is often referred to as the gold standard for positive sustainability- and social-oriented efforts, Par Equity — which focuses on growing startups across HealthTech, ClimateTech, and IndustrialTech — is one of only a few VC firms in the UK to secure this status.
