Let's Build a Movement

Based in Spokane, we’re the only B Corp and sustainability consultants in the Inland Northwest. Our mission is to help create a business community that is more locally focused, intentional and purpose driven. We work with companies of all sizes, from a local coffee roaster seeking B Corp Certification in order to solidify their commitment to socially responsible supply chains to the City of Spokane itself, where we built a framework for citizen-led climate action planning.

We Help Companies Like Yours

This is the beginning of a profound journey. Here are some insights from people who've made the trip with us.

Pathfinding Badasses

As a company we've always tried to make decisions to maximize the good we do in our community and limit our negative impacts on everything. There wasn't a plan or anything. At any given decision point, we would just do what felt right. When we heard about B Corp and the certification process, we were drawn to the idea and even thought we'd be a good fit, but we got pretty daunted by the depth and breadth of the impact assessment. We were proud of the way we operated, but nothing was codified. There was nothing systematic about our approach to doing the right thing. It seemed insurmountably hard to try and translate the free form nature of 5 years of decision making into something as cut and dried as a certification. We talked to Kara and Mark about these concerns and they thought they could help, so Mark sat us down and we went through the impact assessment together in real time. Pretty soon, not only had a path begun to emerge, but we found ourselves further down the road than I expected. They've been our pathfinders ever since. Helping us codify — not to mention reflect on; give ourselves credit for — the stuff we already do well, and helping us work through going even further. It's been a wonderful experience.

Supportive Guidance

In the summer of 2019, we engaged Measure Meant to provide coaching for our efforts to become a Certified B Corp. Their insights into the B Impact Assessment, the templates and tools they provided, and continued support and guidance have enabled us to make progress to our goals and to think differently about how we manage our business. The B Corp Certification can be a daunting task even though we already follow a substantial number of the practices included in the assessment. Having Measure Meant support us through the process has made things easier for all of us.

Continual Advocates and Cheerleaders

I cannot speak highly enough in regard to the experience I had while working with Kara on our Certified B Corp project. She was professional, intelligent, organized and was able to keep me on an agreeable, yet aggressive timeline. Kara also becomes your advocate and cheer leader continually being encouraging and positive. I highly recommend Kara and Measure Meant Social Impact Consulting if your business is looking at what strategies you can implement to become a socially and environmentally responsible force for good in your community!

Delivered Value Beyond

“When we realized we needed a third-party feasibility study in order to apply for a federal grant program, we called Measure Meant. We trusted Mark and Kara to understand and support our Co-op's mission and vision in their work with us, which they did. From the beginning, they partnered with our team to align on objectives, scope, and preferred areas of focus. They collaborated with us to design a survey of our institutional clients and analyzed the results to support the feasibility study. The final report was comprehensive and gave us value beyond the grant application. Measure Meant was a joy to work with and an excellent partner throughout the project.”
