Best for the World!
As a proud B Corp, Hepburn Wind was recognized among the Best for the World list administered by the nonprofit B Lab. This comprehensive and independent assessment shines a spotlight on companies and cooperatives that are creating positive community, environmental and social outcomes.
We have been honoured by our inclusion in three categories, the best for Community, Environment and Overall. These lists are composed of the top 10% in the world of Certified B Corporations and all those included have been judged based on the outcome of the B Impact Assessment. The full assessment measures a company’s impact on its workers, community, customers and the environment. To certify as B Corporations, companies like ours must complete a detailed assessment and have our answers verified by B Lab.
The community portion of the B Impact Assessment evaluates a company’s supplier relations, diversity, and involvement in the local community. The environmental portion evaluates a company’s environmental performance through its facilities, materials, emissions, and resource and energy use. Honorees scoring in the top 10 percent set a gold standard for how business can be a force for good in communities around the world. Hepburn Wind made the list thanks to exceptional practices like our Community Fund, renewable energy generation and co-operative structure.
The 226 winning companies on the Best For Community list come from 90 industries and 34 countries. In Australia there were 67 companies that made it into the Best of the World list and we are so excited to be amongst such a talented collection of businesses, co-operatives and companies.
B Lab simultaneously released separate lists recognizing B Corporations as Best For Customers, Best For Governance and Best For Workers, which can be found at bthechange.com/bestfortheworld.
Awards like this are a recognition of the many volunteers and staff hours that have made our organisation so impactful. Thank you all for your support and contribution to Hepburn Wind.
