Novata, an innovative technology platform and public benefit corporation that provides the private markets with a comprehensive Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) data solution, announced its certification as a B Corporation (B Corp).

Novata is now included among businesses that are leading a global movement for an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economy. This certification underscores Novata's commitment to helping enable a more sustainable and inclusive form of capitalism by operating its business in a way that benefits all stakeholders.

To become a Certified B Corporation, companies undergo B Lab’s rigorous review of the impact of their operations and business model on their workers, customers, communities and environment and must score a minimum of 80 points on the B Impact Assessment. Companies taking the B Corp Assessment score an average of 51 points. Novata received a validated score of 102.9 — far exceeding the 80 points needed to pass.
