DIALOG is Now B Corp Certified

August 8, 2023

We are thrilled to announce that DIALOG is now a certified B Corporation!

DIALOG is rising to meet the big world challenges of our time. From climate change to social equity, we seek to create meaningful and lasting improvements to the communities and environment we all share through the power of design. As a certified B Corp, DIALOG has joined a global movement of companies committed to using business as a force for good. This is an ongoing journey and commitment to deepening our impact as a purpose-driven design practice.

“More than a certification, this acknowledges a commitment,” says Antonio Gómez-Palacio, DIALOG Chair. “To walk a purposeful path, continuously raising the bar. And excitingly, that we get to work with clients, teams, and communities that care deeply about our collective impact.”

B Corp certification is a rigorous process that evaluates a company’s practices and outputs across five categories: governance, workers, community, the environment, and customers.


As a B Corp, we strive for the highest standards of social and environmental responsibility, accountability, and transparency. We are dedicated to improving the wellbeing of our communities and the environment. Evidence of our commitment to B Corp can already be found in our work, including our Community Wellbeing Framework, AIA 2030 commitment, Carbon Accounting Initiative, DEI efforts, career development programs, and robust ethics and anti-corruption practices.

What does this certification mean for you?

When partnering with DIALOG, you can be assured that you are working with a company dedicated to making a difference in the world. Together, we will set an example of how good business, meaningful relationships and thoughtful design can create positive and lasting changes in our world. As a B Corp, we’ll continue making improvements and consider our overall impact in our work and business decisions to drive progress and meaningful changes that support our shared vision for a better future.

Being one of fewer than 10 Practices in the Architecture, Design, and Planning industry certified as a B Corp in Canada (as of 2023) is a significant achievement. Still, we believe it’s a stepping stone in our path forward.

We invite all friends, colleagues, clients, partners, and DIALOGers to participate in this ongoing journey with us, contributing ideas, embracing changes, and celebrating progress.
