Did you know that CleanChoice Energy is a Certified B Corporation? As a B Corp, we’re part of a community of companies just like ours—purpose-driven companies creating benefit for all stakeholders, not just shareholders. 

So what exactly is a B Corp? 

Certified B Corporations are companies that balance profit and purpose, creating a positive impact for their employees, communities, and the environment while doing no harm. B Corps are held to the highest standards, having to undergo a thorough evaluation process and pass an 80-point benchmark threshold to earn a certification, then applying for recertification every three years to ensure they continue to exceed the high standards. 

B Corps are redefining what it means to have a successful business. B Corps know there is a better way of doing business—rooted in the belief that to do the right thing, you have to do the right thing in every area. At CleanChoice Energy, we’re a triple bottom line business: we measure our performance based on our impact on society and the environment, in addition to our financial success.

We became a Certified B Corporation because we believe in holding ourselves to the highest standards. We believe that by doing so, we’re demonstrating our commitment to positive social and environmental change. Like our B Corp peers, we don’t just provide a better product—we’re working to build a better world. 

Having a B Corp certification is our way of showing our customers and community that we’re part of a movement that is fundamentally doing business differently. We’re building a new type of company that is trying to make the world better through our products, services, and operations. 

The B Corp community has a vision of building a society that addresses climate change and offers real solutions, such as clean energy. Our team at CleanChoice Energy is inspired by other B Corps. Our B Corp peers are innovators, and they push us to do better. We try to work with as many B Corps as possible and look forward to having more B Corps in the world. When people see the B Corp label, we hope they know that it means business is a force for good. 

CleanChoice Energy has been a Certified B Corporation since 2013, and we have been honored by B Lab as Best for Environment, Best for Workers, Best for Governance, and Best Overall, as part of B Lab’s Best for the World honors. Our mission is to make clean energy accessible to all by supplying customers with 100% renewable energy from wind and solar power.
