EKA Legacy Partners Receives Designation as Certified B Corporation

Santa Barbara-based EKA Legacy Partners LLC, the Earth Keeper Alliance, received its designation as a “Certified B Corporation” in March and has already been given the honor of being in the “Top 10% of B Corp Companies in the World.”

The Earth Keeper Alliance is dedicated to the conservation, preservation, restoration and thoughtful development of large tracts of pristine land that had previously been slated for large-scale development. As impact investors and land stewards, the company is dedicated to supporting “living family legacies through land ‘undevelopment.’”

Certified B Corporations meet higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability, and as a result have access to a portfolio of services and support that benefit corporations do not. The performance standards are comprehensive and transparent.

“We are honored to be a Certified B Corporation. The B Corp. mantle helps us be accountable to our investors, employees, the environment and the community at large,” said Adam Hall, company chief executive. “We want to lead the way for responsible business practices in real estate development.”

Earth Keeper Alliance goals are to foster sustainable timber and water resource management, biodiversity and habitat restoration. The company donates 10 percent of the profits to its sister nonprofit company, Earth Services Inc., whose initiatives include youth educational centers in Urban Gardens.

— Kyleen Dawson is the vice president of public relations for EKA Legacy Partners LLC.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
