King of Prussia, PA (PRWEB) February 18, 2016
R World Energy Solutions (RWES), an energy efficiency solutions company with roots going back to 2001, is very proud to announce its achievement in becoming a Certified B Corporation. Having passed the rigorous four-month certification process, RWES joins a select group of 1,498 companies worldwide and one of only 28 in the Philadelphia region committed to using business as a force for good. This prestigious certification for RWES means that it voluntarily meets a very high standard of transparency, accountability and performance, using the power of business to solve social and economic problems.
RWES became a B Corporation because it believes in creating a more sustainable environment and giving back in the process. The company’s mission is to create a greener world one business at a time. This certification will ensure that the company stays focused on its mission while keeping all people, the planet, and profit in mind.
Frank Fazio, RWES’ CEO and board-member of St. Joseph’s University Haub School of Business’ Ethics committee, had this to say, “The reason R World Energy Solutions became a B Corp is that its core values and vision aligns with what we believe and practice as a company. I was first introduced to B Lab at my alma mater St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, and instantly was intrigued with what B Corps stand for. I am very proud that late last year we became a Certified B Corporation.”
RWES Green/Academic initiative with SJU’s sustainability organization, Net Impact, demonstrates the company’s commitment to using business as a force for good. By working together with students and professionals interested in using business skills in support of various social and environmental causes, Net Impact and RWES will help SJU become an energy efficient campus.
