“Doing good isn’t just a clever tagline used in branding. It’s how we describe the DNA of these purpose-driven companies, like FireWise. It’s like breathing to them. They must “do good” to sustain the life of their work. FireWise is the first business from Canada to become part of our family of “doing good” businesses”. ~ Benefit Corporation for Good
