Certified B Corp
Sensiba San Filippo (SSF) 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.
SSF 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. We are proud to join them in redefining success in business, so that one day everyone uses business as a force for good. To learn more about our certification, check out our B Corp profile.

SSF also hosts an annual “All Hands Volunteer Day” each June where the firm shuts down for the day, and leverages their large employee base to volunteer with a local nonprofit. In the past few years we have helped: Sunflower Hill Hagemann Ranch (2017), Guadalupe Parkway River (2016), Alameda Point Collaborative (2015), St. Vincent de Paul (2014), The Oakland Zoo (2013), and ValleyCare Hospital (2012).
40th Anniversary $40 a Day Initiative
To help celebrate our 40th anniversary we supported a different nonprofit each week for 2017 and donating $40 a day to that charity. So, how do we pick which charities? Our money has always followed our people. Each nonprofit we are supporting is a nonprofit one of our employees is involved with. We not only support the community, but our employee’s passions.
