Public Benefit Corporation (PBC)

Activate Workforce Solutions is a Public Benefit Corporation (PBC). Colorado’s benefit corporation statute became effective on April 1, 2014, allowing socially-conscious entrepreneurs another entity option when starting a business. A Colorado public benefit corporation is a for-profit corporation that requires the company to be operated in a manner that is sustainable and beneficial to society and the environment.

As compared to a regular Colorado corporation, a Colorado public benefit corporation has these key differences:

 

  • The articles of incorporation must list one or more public benefits that the company strives to achieve.
  • The company must be managed to balance the pecuniary interest of the shareholder, the best interests of those affected by the company’s conduct, and the public benefits listed.
  • The company must prepare an annual benefit report with a description of how the company promoted the public benefits listed in the company’s articles of incorporation, any obstacles the company faced in promoting those public benefits, and an assessment of the overall social and environmental performance of the company against a third-party standard.
