The Arctic Solar Ventures commitment
Here at Arctic Solar Ventures, we’re committed to not just doing good business, but doing good for Alaskans. We’re also committed to being an ethical, transparent and environmental company. That’s why it means so much to us to be a Certified B Corp.
A Certified B Corp is a for-profit company dedicated to using business as a force for good. We are proud to count ourselves among the 3,000 Certified B-Corporations across 64 countries and 150 industries. Together, we’re unified by one common goal: to redefine success in business.
Top recognition from B Lab
Recently, Arctic Solar Ventures was named a Best For The World company. We are proud to be an Alaska company joining the top tier of Certified B-Corps worldwide. We were recognized in both the Changemakers and Environment categories. Best For the World recognition is administered by B Lab, the global nonprofit that certifies and supports B-Corporations.
The Changemakers recognition is for significant improvement to our overall impact score. The Environment recognition is for always continuing to put environment first in our everyday business practices. We’re working hard to help lead the way toward a more sustainable and regenerative planet.
We’ve always believed that businesses should be committed to improving the communities around them, not just their own bottom line. Committing to being a B Corp keeps us accountable to that philosophy, and ensures that we walk our talk. We’re honored to be recognized alongside other incredible companies from all over the world. We’re also so grateful to be able to do the work that we do every day.
More about what it means to be a B Corp
A B Corp company must meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability, balancing profit and purpose. B Corp Certification doesn’t just evaluate a product or service. The certification assesses the overall positive impact of the company that stands behind those products and services.
Using the B Impact Assessment, B Lab evaluates how a company’s operations and business model impacts its workers, community, environment, and customers. Other companies named to the 2019 Best For The World lists include Patagonia, Beautycounter, Dr. Bronner’s, TOMS, and more.
