WASHINGTON, June 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- CleanChoice Energy, a renewable energy company that provides 100% clean electricity to customers across the country, has been recognized for creating extraordinary positive impact as a business, based on an independent, comprehensive assessment administered by the nonprofit B Lab. CleanChoice Energy is honored in the Best For The World Overall list, which includes businesses that earned scores in the top 10 percent of more than 2,400 Certified B Corporations across all categories on the B Impact Assessment. The assessment measures a company's positive impact on its workers, community, customers and the environment. To certify as a B Corporation, companies like CleanChoice Energy must complete the full assessment, score above the performance requirement, and have their answers verified by B Lab.
"We're incredibly proud to be among the companies ranked as the Best for the World," said Tom Matzzie, Founder and CEO of CleanChoice Energy. "At the end of the day, companies – and the men and women who run them - have enormous power in shaping the world we all live in. We're proud of the role CleanChoice Energy is playing to help make the world a safer, healthier place."
"Being named a Best for the World company shows that as companies grow and scale they can increase the positive and social impact they make," said Richard Graves, CleanChoice Energy's Chief Impact Officer and Co-founder. "This is the culmination of five years of CleanChoice Energy impact initiatives."
"With the rise of anger at a system that feels rigged, people are hungry for companies like CleanChoice Energy, who are changing the system by building businesses that seek to create the greatest positive impact," says Jay Coen Gilbert, co-founder of B Lab. "Best For The World is the only list of businesses that uses comprehensive, comparable, third-party-validated data about a company's social and environmental performance. As consumers, talent and investors increasingly demand transparent, values-aligned businesses to buy from, work at, and invest in, companies will need to not just be the best in the world but the best for the world. Not just to be nice—but to be the most successful."
