SunBug Solar is proud to be a Certified B Corporation, joining a global movement of people using business as a force for good.
Certified B Corporations meet higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. They must achieve a minimum verified score on the B Impact Assessment—a rigorous assessment of a company’s impact on its workers, customers, community, and environment—and make their B Impact Report transparent on bcorporation.net. Certified B Corporations also amend their legal governing documents to require their board of directors to balance profit and purpose.
The combination of third-party validation, public transparency, and legal accountability help Certified B Corps build trust and value. Being a Certified B Corp is important to SunBug’s mission, as B Corps inspire all businesses to compete not only to be the best in the world, but to be the best for the world.
SunBug was first certified in 2018 with an assessment score of 81.3. In 2021, SunBug was re-certified with a score of 90, showing a significant improvement over our original score. B-Corp divides its assessment metrics into four main categories: Community, Environment, Governance, and Workers. In our 2021 recertification we markedly improved on the last two.
Governance covers policies and practices in regard to mission, ethics, transparency and accountability. SunBug improved to 13.1 from 6.9, nearly doubling our score.
Workers is all about how a company treats employees, or as B Corp describes it, how a company "contributes to employees’ financial, physical, professional, and social well-being." There SunBug improved 30%, from a score of 20.4 to 26.8 points.
SunBug is particularly proud to show such improvement in these categories that are central to the health and well being of our team.
