We are proud to be a B Corp AND a Certified Benefit Corporation
Sun Light & Power is a Benefit Corporation, an alternative form of legal incorporation that enables for-profit entities to integrate social and environmental goals into their business operations. We’re also a Certified B Corp, a trade designation developed by the nonprofit B Lab. Both of these designations signal our fundamental belief that as one of the first solar power companies in California, the power of business can be used to tackle important social and environmental problems. We do this while providing a healthy and sustainable workplace for our employees.
Sun Light & Power was one of the first 15 Benefit Corporations in California. As with other Benefit Corporations, our priorities are “People, Planet, and Prosperity.”
Benefit Corporations are required to create a material positive impact on society and the environment. They are expected to meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and most importantly, accountability. They are also required to measure and report on the corporation’s impact on employees, suppliers, community, customers and the environment. Learn more at B Lab’s Benefit Corp Information Center.
From the B Corp website, "Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corps are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy."
B Corp certification is a badge of honor for sustainable businesses. If you vote with your dollars and care about social and environmental issues, do business with B Corps and become a part of the solution!I
