June 13, 2018—Bullfrog Power is being recognized for creating a positive impact for the environment, their workers — and for creating innovative governance structures to protect the mission of its business for the long term. The organization has been listed on B Lab’s Best For The Environment, Workers and Governance lists, part of B Lab’s Best For The World initiative.
To achieve these distinctions, Bullfrog Power scored in the top 10 per cent of more than 2,400 global Certified B Corporations on the B Impact Assessment in the above categories.
What are B Corps?
B Corps or “Benefit Corporations” are for-profit companies certified by the non-profit B Lab that are using business as a force for good, bringing about positive social and environmental change in addition to securing a profit. Certification is achieved by completing a full B Impact Assessment where rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency must be met.
“The B Corp community is becoming a movement — a network of innovators and changemakers working together to try to solve our biggest social and environmental challenges,” says Ron Seftel, Bullfrog’s CEO. “They share many of the principles that have long been values at Bullfrog Power, enabling us to deliver green energy solutions that empower Canadians to fight climate change.”
“We are inspired by the organizations within our community of bullfrogpowered businesses who have earned the Best For The World distinction this year. B Corps have the potential to create a more sustainable and prosperous society — and we are proud to be working alongside many of our customers toward achieving this goal.”
