Mobisol has long striven to be a socially responsible business with the clear aim to empower communities in developing nations with affordable and clean solar energy. To emphasize our commitment to sustainable socioeconomic and ecological development, we have now become a certified B Corp – a designation that combines social and environmental responsibility and bottom-line profitability. Mobisol was certified by the non-profit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. We’ve evaluated how our practices impact our employees, our community, the environment, and our customers.
There are over 1,350 Certified B Corporations from more than 120 industries in 41 countries with 1 unifying goal – to redefine success in business. The B Corp certification applies to all aspects of the whole business. Certified B Corporations have to meet high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. The performance standards are comprehensive and transparent. They measure a company’s impact on all its stakeholders (e.g. workers, suppliers, community, and the environment). Unlike traditional corporations, Certified B Corporations are required to consider the impact of their decisions not only on their shareholders, but also on their stakeholders such as workers, suppliers, community, consumers, and the environment.
