Sunrock is now part of the “B Corp movement”, a growing global movement of companies that are actively promoting a sustainable, social, and fair future. To complete the certification, the company legally embedded its commitment to a purpose beyond profit in its company articles. The certification is based on a long-term commitment to greater sustainability, since companies certified as B Corps must be recertified every three years to maintain their certification.
The B Impact Assessment (BIA) measures the company’s overall social, ecological, and economic performance and focuses primarily on public transparency and legal accountability. The certification addresses the entirety of a business’s operations and covers five key impact areas: Governance, Workers, Community, Environment, and Customers. The certification process is rigorous, with applicants required to reach a benchmark score of at least 80 (out of the 200 maximum) points while providing evidence of socially and environmentally responsible practices relating to energy supplies, waste and water use, worker compensation, diversity, and corporate transparency.
Sunrock scored 110 points overall showing their commitment to make a true effort for change. The BIA serves as a valuable benchmark for Sunrock’s ESG performance and provides insights into areas where they can improve their practices, e.g. enhancing internal awareness of the codes of conduct and improving the ratio of ethnic and gender diversity within the company.
“At Sunrock, we know that businesses hold the power to create positive change. For over a decade, we have worked with our clients, partners, and employees to show that choosing clean energy makes a difference. However, our dedication to protecting the environment extends beyond only reducing carbon emissions through solar power. We believe that a clean energy future should be realized while safeguarding the fundamental interests of employees and all stakeholders in our value chain”, says Johannes Duijzer, CEO
“Our ESG approach is built on the pursuit of continuously improving our efforts to integrate internationally recognized human rights and environmental principles into our core business. We view this certification as an endorsement and an added impetus towards realizing our goal of fully integrating ESG principles into every facet of our operations”, adds Manuella Appiah, ESG Manager at Sunrock.
B Lab is transforming the economy to benefit all people, communities, and the planet. A leader in economic systems change, its global network creates standards, policies, and tools for business. Besides, B Lab certifies companies – known as B Corps – who are leading the way. To date, the global B Corp community includes over 8,500 companies in 92 countries and 161 industries, and over 200,000 companies manage their impact with the B Impact Assessment.
