Sungevity is a proud new member of Green America’s Green Business Network.  Green America awards the Green Business Seal of Approval to businesses that go beyond product and service quality to set the highest standards in environmental sustainability and social justice, and work to solve, rather than create, environmental and social problems.

You may not be aware that Sungevity is a B Corporation (B for Beneficial), meaning our mission is far more complex than simple profit-seeking.  B Corporations meet rigorous, independent standards of social and environmental performance. Sungevity’s articles of incorporation explicitly consider the interests of its stakeholders, such as employees, communities, and the environment.  Since 2006, B Lab has certified 369 B Corps, launching a revolution described by Esquire as nothing less than “saving capitalism from itself.”

I don’t know about saving capitalism but, as a green B Corp, Sungevity is dead set on saving the planet.  Joining the ranks of hundred of other B Corps and companies in the Green Business Network, we’re putting unsustainable businesses on notice–go green or get out of our way.
