Best For the World & Best For Our Workers

ReVision Energy is proud to have once again been named a Best for the World™ B Corp in 2022 for our sustainable business practices and commitment to our workforce. We rank in the top 5% of 5,000 B Corps worldwide again thanks to initiatives to create a beneficial and balanced work environment for all at ReVision, such as employee-ownership, paid family leave, and flexible scheduling.

Earning this honor reinforces our dedication to investing in our greatest asset: our people. We’re proud to be able to offer strong benefits to our co-owners, and build a working environment that fosters learning, collaboration, and continuous growth.

But don’t just take this blog post’s word for it – hear from one of our electricians Dan Lombard as he explains his favorite parts of our benefits program.

Dan, like many other ReVision co-owners, joined our team to pursue a fruitful and engaging career in the solar industry. Talented people like him are how we’re able to grow our team and mission, and continue to improve our company for the benefit of our people.

(If you or someone you know is interested in such a career, we are looking for more solar champions to join our team!)

Improving our Business to Improve the World

Our founders started ReVision back in 2003 with a vision of an equitable, supportive, and democratic business that is run by and for its employees, which makes receiving this Best for the World award all the more meaningful. Like our status as an ESOP, being a company that is best for its workers is integral to ReVision’s business model and the mission that drives all we do. “One of our most basic human urges is to make things better, for ourselves and those around us,” said ReVision Energy co-founder Phil Coupe. “Similarly, most businesses are trying to make improvements, whether it’s higher earnings, attracting more clients, increasing benefits for employees and protecting the environment.

B Corp certification has been positively transformational for ReVision Energy, helping us attract and retain incredible employees and clients, which in turn has helped us increase our business success in the highly competitive marketplace. Being recognized again as “Best for the World” among our B Corp peers is not only a tremendous honor for our employee-owned company, but also a powerful validation that doing the right thing for people and the environment is always a winning business strategy.” – Phil Coupe

The Best for the World recognition is administered by B Lab, the global nonprofit network that certifies and mobilizes B Corps, which are businesses that meet high standards of positive social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. Today, there are more than 5,000 B Corps across 80 countries and 155 industries, unified by one common goal: building an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economic system.

B Corps meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. The B Corp Certification doesn’t just evaluate a product or service, it assesses the overall positive impact of the company.

In Good Company

Every year, Best for the World recognizes the top-performing B Corps creating the greatest positive impact through their businesses. “Each Best for the World edition is an opportunity to raise the bar for how businesses can and should operate to create real and lasting positive impact for their workers, customers, communities, and the environment,” says Dan Osusky, Head of Standards and Insight at B Lab Global.

“While no company is perfect and even the best companies can and should continue to strive to improve, the B Corps recognized as Best for the World can provide us all — standards setters, B Corps, non B Corps, and sustainability advocates — with inspiration on what true leadership in business can look like to make progress on addressing our current global challenges.” – Dan Osusky

More than a badge of honor, Best for the World provides an opportunity for recognized companies to share knowledge, learnings, and best practices with the B Corp community and businesses outside of the community to encourage innovation and transformation across the business sector.
