Clean Solar Achieves B Corp Certification

B Corp's first Silicon Valley-based solar installer

Submitted by: Clean Solar

Categories: Renewable & Alternative Energy, Sustainability

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 14 /CSRwire/ - Clean Solar is proud to announce its certification as a B Corporation, making it the first solar installation company headquartered in the Silicon Valley to achieve B Corp status. The prestigious designation is awarded to new companies which use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems and meet higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability.

Becoming a Certified B Corporation solidifies the company’s mission in promoting sustainable living, environmental stewardship and social change through solar power. “Becoming a Certified B Corporation aligns with our existing operational and performance business goals. This certification further positions Clean Solar as an industry leader and shows our conscious commitment to the community and environment,” stated Co-Founder Jeff Ritchey.

Certified B Corporations are a new kind of company with a positive vision of a better way to do business.  To become a Certified B Corporation, B Lab, the nonprofit that certifies and supports B Corporations, conducted a rigorous evaluation of Clean Solar and determined the company met the comprehensive performance standards to qualify for certification. Unlike traditional corporations, Clean Solar and other Certified B Corporations will be legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on their employees, suppliers, community, consumers, and the environment.

“As part of our foundation, Clean Solar continues to be at the forefront of exceptional customer service in an effort to change the way homeowners look at solar,” said Clean Solar Co-founder and CEO, Randy Zechman. “We are thrilled to join other socially conscious Certified B Corps and work towards the common goal of creating a sustainable lifestyle for everyone.”

Clean Solar engages in a number of social ventures in local communities that illustrate the power of ethical business. The company now joins the ranks of other social and environmental business leaders in the marketplace including nearly 1,000 Certified B Corporations from sixty industries. Clean Solar’s full B Score Report is available to the public here: www.bcorporation.net/community/clean-solar.

About B Corp

Certified B Corporations must (1) meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance; (2) legally expand their corporate responsibilities to include consideration of stakeholder interests; and (3) build collective voice through the power of the unifying B Corporation brand. As of April 2014, there are over 900 Certified B Corporations from over 60 industries, representing a diverse multi-billion marketplace.

About B Lab

B Lab is a nonprofit organization dedicated to using the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. B Lab drives systemic change through three interrelated initiatives: (1) building a community of Certified B Corporations to make it easier for all of us to tell the difference between “good companies” and just good marketing; (2) accelerating the growth of the impact investing asset class through use of B Lab’s GIIRS impact rating system by institutional investors; and (3) promoting supportive public policies, including creation of a new corporate form and tax, procurement, and investment incentives for sustainable business.
