We became a B Corp because we strongly believe that business can be a force for good. The poor and the under-served also deserve top level professional advice and services.

By being part of the B Corp community, we want to work with other like-minded businesses and to share human and material resources which can be of use to our ultimate beneficiaries.

In this way, we believe that we can better serve our local community as well as the under-served and the poor worldwide.

The Change We Seek®

Dikaios wants to move beyond the antagonism between business and charity to the creation of an environment where business is perceived as a creator of riches for itself and for the community.

By providing training in the ethical and environmentally sustainable solution of business, financial, economic issues, they aim at creating a positive view, within the religious and purpose-driven communities, of the beneficial impact of business in the lives of the poor and the under-served.

What makes us a better company?
