We are honored that B Corp is recognizing our positive social and environmental impact and believe our commitment to these principles will only enhance our profitability and ongoing success.
Boulder, Colo. (PRWEB) March 01, 2016
Sustainable pool sanitation company Clear Comfort has earned B Corporation certification, recognizing the company’s commitment to high standards of social and environmental responsibility.
Backed by impact investors since its founding, Clear Comfort’s mission has been to offer customers a healthier, cleaner, safer and more sustainable pool. With Clear Comfort’s chlorine-free and low-chlorine pool systems, customers reduce chemical handling and exposure, storage and the inevitable distribution into the ecosystem.
Clear Comfort joins more than 1,500 certified B Corporations around the world, including notables like Ben and Jerry’s, New Belgium Brewing Co. and Patagonia, that strive to operate sustainably and with social benefit in mind.
“Achieving B Corporation certification is a proud moment for our team and a natural fit with the values of our company,” said Clear Comfort CEO Steve Berens. “We are honored that B Corp is recognizing our positive social and environmental impact and believe our commitment to these principles will only enhance our profitability and ongoing success.”
Certified B Corporations meet rigorous requirements demonstrating social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability. B Lab, the nonprofit that certifies and supports B Corporations, measures a company’s impact on all of its stakeholders: workers, suppliers, community, customers and the environment.
Clear Comfort’s journey with B Corp doesn’t end at certification, but is the beginning of a longstanding promise. Maintaining a B Corp certification requires vigorous checks and balances to assure that Clear Comfort’s impact on its community, employees, customers and the environment are positive. Each assessment is an opportunity for continuous improvement.
In addition to producing a sustainable product, Clear Comfort is demonstrating and measuring its commitment to the environment and the community by manufacturing all products within the United States, working with local vendors, offering generous employee compensation packages and supporting volunteering, and making financial contributions to local nonprofits.
