Adopt-A-Watt® Inc. is the founding company for the National Adopt-A-Watt® Program (NAAWP). Modeled after the successful Adopt-A-Highway program, NAAWP provides a business-based, funding methodology to facilitate America's transition to clean energy, energy efficiency and alternative fuels. Supported by Clean Cities Coalitions and endorsed by many alternative fuel organizations, agreements and project discussions have been generated with hundreds of public agencies for rest areas, travel plazas, bridges, tunnels, airports, sports/entertainment complexes, schools, etc. We became a B Corp because along with our core mission of reducing fossil fuel usage, we are determined to always consider the impact our decisions have on employees, suppliers, community, consumers, and environment. B Corp Certification provides third party verification for doing so. At no cost, public agencies (Hosts) receive Sponsor-able Photo-Voltaic Displays (SPVD) that will provide clean energy, reduce electrical costs, and produce revenues as well as demonstrate to residents that they are embracing clean energy and alternative fuels. Sponsor-able platforms include solar PV arrays, solar PV lights and energy efficient lighting systems. Funds raised in excess of costs for SPVDs are utilized for any useful purpose to further help the Host reduce fossil fuel consumption. Funds are raised via donations given to the Hosts from sponsoring companies. The sponsors of the NAAWP receive community recognition for their support in the form of an acknowledgement sign attached to the SPVD, as well as associated media coverage, Letters of Commendation, etc. Adopt-A-Watt 55.0 0.0 24.8 13.0 6.0 Royal Oak, MI 48067, MI 98.8 adoptawatt AAW is passionate about mitigating the disastrous effects that burning fossil fuels are having on our society and planet. The NAAWP helps to reduce fossil fuel consumption by: Creating a Chain-Reaction of Support…As was pointed out by Scientific American Magazine, “The greatest obstacle to implementing a renewable U.S. energy system is not technology or money… it is the lack of public awareness”. The NAAWP has the inherent need to be at high-profile locations and because of this helps to educate and inform the public and encourage their participation in the clean energy movement. Facilitating Public Agencies Transition to 21st Century Energy…Most public agencies recognize the need to embrace clean energy, alternative fuel and efficiency programs, but because of strained budgets are often unable to do so. The NAAWP provides a completely managed, third party verified, no-cost means of fulfilling their ‘green’ initiatives. Providing a new Marketing Platform That ‘Gives-Back’…In addition to offering individuals, foundations and non-profits an impacting and visible means of displaying philanthropy; sponsorship presents an exciting, new, alternative media platform for corporations to benefit the communities they serve while demonstrating 21st century Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and generating favorable, 365 day per year, brand awareness. Reducing Wasteful Print Media Marketing …The NAAWP encourages sponsors to re-direct 10% of their print media advertising to this community benefiting program. The reallocation of marketing spend is at no additional cost to advertising budgets and still generates critical brand awareness, but also saves trees, reduces fossil fuel used to transport and deliver print stock and reduces significant amounts of wasteful print media that would otherwise clog local landfills. The measure of their success will be determined by the amount of clean energy and alternative fuel projects funded, and to the extent AAW can help educate the public to recognize the advantages of both.

Inspired by the 2004 film What the Bleep Do We Know and Dr. Masaru Emoto’s book Hidden Messages in Water, Aquamantra utilizes the theories of quantum mechanics, whereby positive thoughts are shown to influence the molecular structure of water, to make their water more refreshing for body, mind, and soul. Each bottle of Aquamantra premium Natural Spring Water features unique art work from local California artists and the mantra I am Loved, I am Grateful, I am Healthy, or I am Lucky to infuse the water with positive energies. The values advanced by B Lab and B Corporations are ones that are important to us and also to our stakeholders. By becoming a B Corporation, we are better able to broadcast our commitment to those values and hopefully set an example of social and environmental responsibility in our community. In February of 2007, Aquamantra won "The Best Tasting Bottled Water" in an International Bottled Water competion, out of 23 countries and over 50 other applicants. It is essential that our water be natural and taste good. The combination of the natural flavor and the energy delivered through the mantra, makes this water the best choice on the market and it is 100% natural; no chemicals, no sugar, no vitamins, no additives. Just water and thought, the two basic needs for survival. Aquamantra 27.8 None 38.4 25.9 7.3 Dana Point, CA 99.4 aquamantra Aquamantra wants to provide a brand that will not just hydrate, but will engage and inspire their clients to create the reality they choose to live in. • Their purpose is to inspire you to recite the mantras written on the bottles and affect change in the world around you; their unique bottle design was created to remind you to think, then drink. They'd like to think that if it takes you 10 sips to finish a bottle of water and you say I AM LOVED 10 times to yourself or out loud with a smile, this will affect your attitude, your mood, and the reaction of those around in your life. • Their bottles are ENSO BOTTLES™ made from 100% Biodegradable, 100% Compostable and 100% Recyclable PET 1 (FDA APPROVED). Contrary to what the 'rumors' are about plastic leaching into your water bottle they now have proof from ENSO™ that this is not the case. • Funds raised through the sale of Aquamantra water are donated to aid charities and foundations to assist with the management of international projects such as Nourish America, UNICEF, the Make a Wish Foundation, and Vitamin Angel Alliance. With every purchase of Aquamantra water you are giving back to the children who are our future and helping to make a difference in this planet we all share. None None

In the knowledge economy, it is the people in a city – their skills, capabilities and knowledge – that can make a critical difference to a city’s ability to compete successfully for investment. A key driver of a city’s attractiveness is the extent to which people feel connected to one another or the degree of social capital that exists. The vibrant, connected neighborhoods that ADG develops make cities attractive to skilled and entrepreneurial, and help generate intellectual and social capital. Strengthen Local Economies:Walkable, mixed-use neighborhoods reduce household transportation costs by 22%. All of Arnold Development Group's projects are located in walkable areas with access to transit lines. They estimate that nearly $5 million per year per neighborhood of 5,000 people could be kept in the community if residents could spend less on transportation.High performance green buildings consume less energy than conventional buildings, which makes their developments more affordable. Reduce Carbon Emissions:Arnold Development Group strives to develop buildings that do not use electricity produced from coal, but rather utilize lower carbon alternatives such as solar, hydro or natural gas powered combined heat and power systems. They aim for their projects to generate more renewable energy than they consume and sell the excess back to the grid. 0.0 19.4

Atayne makes high performing outdoor and athletic apparel for activities such as running, cycling, and cross-country skiing. However, they do things much differently than others in the industry. Not only does Atayne make products with exceptional performance, they make them in a way that is safe for people and the planet. They call it Performance with a Point of View. "I'm just writing a story that I want to read." -Jean M. Auel We became a B Corp because we didn't like the story that was being written by most of the business community. It was an easy decision to join the movement to write a new one. From a performance standpoint, their products are second to none. Atayne have been selected as the performance apparel provider by some great events and organizations such as: The Dempsey Challenge, Freedom’s Run, the Vermont 100, and the Army National Guard Running Team. However, Atayne is not just a company outfitting athletes with exceptional performance apparel. They were born to fulfill the needs of a growing segment of athletes and events that want to align with products and brands that share their environmental and social values. So not only do they deliver performance, they offer a healthy Point of View. Some of theur key differentiators include: • All Atayne products (not just a few) are made using 100% recycled or organic fabrics • All the materials Atayne uses are third party verified for human safety • All manufacturing is done, fiber to finish, in the USA Atayne 27.5 0.0 41.4 13.0 19.5 Brunswick, ME 101.4 atayne Atayne was launched in May 2007 to inspire positive environmental and social change through the power of active lifestyles. Their first step in this mission is athletic gear made from trash. Why trash? It's better for people, better for the planet, and better for performance. That's our point of view. • While their primary business is making athletic and outdoor gear from recycled materials, their passion and purpose is to inspire positive environmental and social change. Atayne organizes trash runs at races, consults with events on how to reduce their impact on the environment, and manufactures their products in North America. • Atayne is developing an innovative product take back program that rewards people for submitting fully used athletic gear to be reused or recycled. Instead of immediately recycling these into new material, which is the model of most takeback programs, Atayne will look to use the materials in their existing state to create new products. Remember the 3Rs – first you Reduce, then you Reuse, and finally you Recycle. None None

AXIS Performance Advisors is a sustainability consulting firm offering products and services to help organizations implement sustainable practices—in their internal operations, in the design of their products and services, and in managing relationships with external stakeholders. The owners, Darcy Hitchcock and Marsha Willard, are the authors of the award-winning book, The Business Guide to Sustainability, which translates the abstract concepts of sustainability into plain language for organizational managers. They now spend much of their time teaching and supporting others to work in the sustainability field. We became a B Corporation to be a model for our clients. AXIS provides practical tools for sustainable business, including their SCORE™ sustainability assessment, their SPaRK™ (Sustainability Planning and Reporting Kit) electronic files to support sustainability planning and reporting. They also provide training and facilitation tools (e.g., a process and system for uncovering the strategic business reasons to pursue sustainability.) Marsha and Darcy also co-founded the International Society of Sustainability Professionals to raise the field to the next level of performance and competence. AXIS Performance Advisors None None 51.9 None 27.7 Portland, OR 96.3 axis As interest in sustainability started to explode, AXIS decided they could do more good in the world by teaching others how to use their methods (rather than hoarding them and just working with their own clients). That way others can profit from AXIS's tools, and sustainable practices can spread even faster. • In 1995, AXIS hosted a think tank on the just emerging buzzword: sustainability. During that think tank, it became clear that they had left out a key stakeholder: the environment. Improved organizational performance often came at the expense of natural systems. This epiphany led to their refocusing their business on sustainability, where the economy, community and environment are not traded off against one another, but instead are jointly optimized. It wasn’t easy; sometimes it felt like they were creating a business out of wishful thinking. But how times have changed! Marsha and Darcy now teach Foundations of Sustainable Business for the prestigious Bainbridge Graduate Institute’s MBA and certificate programs. They consult, coach, teach and write, all in service of creating a more sustainable and just world. 0.0 16.7
Azavea is a small, award-winning geospatial analysis (GIS) software development firm specializing in the creation of highly crafted and easy-to-use web and mobile solutions, as well as geospatial analysis services to enhance decision-making processes. They like to call themselves a boutique systems design and software development firm. What do they mean by “boutique”? Azavea doesn’t just write software. Azavea’s culture is based on several features – growth and diversification, intellectually challenging work that has social value, teams made up of smart people, and attention to a high quality experience for their clients and the audience that uses their applications. Their goal is to combine their experience solving tough geospatial problems, commitment to tailored service, and a genuine desire to “do well by doing good” in order to help their clients create more dynamic, vibrant, and sustainable communities. It is their hope that in the process, they can help their clients make positive and long-lasting impacts on the communities they serve. Azavea has experience working on projects spanning a wide array of domains: natural resource planning, neighborhood revitalization, economic development, crime analysis, real estate property analysis, redistricting, political advocacy, and cultural resources to name a few. While terms such as 'Corporate Social Responsibility', 'conscious capitalism' and 'sustainable development' are increasingly being used, it all boils down to the choices we make as businesses and the values we not only claim to believe in, but that we actually apply in our day-to-day operations. The B Corporation status emphasizes the triple bottom line of social responsibility, sustainability and profitability (people, planet, profit). At Azavea, many of our business decisions stem from these three principles, so becoming a B Corporation was a no brainer. By legally becoming a B Corporation we are better positioned to demonstrate that commitment and set an example in our industry and our community. Azavea 9.7 38.4 18.4 12.2 6.8 Philadelphia, PA 85.5 azavea Azavea sees technology as a means to an end; not as an ideology. Pushing the envelope of what current technology platforms can do is what sets them apart, but at the core of their choices are their clients’ needs and budgets, and the positive impacts their projects will have on the communities they serve. Azavea can work with both commercial software and open source platforms as well as hybrids of the two, depending on the particular needs of the client. Ultimately, they want to produce elegant, technically beautiful, user-friendly solutions that are also affordable. Investing in relationships with their clients, their employees, and the communities around them is one of their core values: • Azavea believes in being generous with their time, knowledge, and expertise. They want to be helpful to the communities they serve (locally and globally) as much as they are to their paying clients. Whether it is to answer a quick question by email or responding by phone for an hour, they believe being helpful is one of the highest qualities they can demonstrate. • Investing in a stimulating, intellectually challenging and open environment for their employees is an explicit part of Azavea’s mission. From the office layout and monthly Brown Bag Lunches to their benefit package that includes training and continuing education expense reimbursements, they try to create a place where smart people can collaborate more effectively and feel intellectually stimulated. • Lastly, their investment in relationships extends to their commitment to redistributing 2% of their annual profits to charitable organizations selected by our staff through their “Time to Give Back” program, while their pro bono and 10% personal research programs have enabled their employees to work on projects that have a strong potential to help either a group of people or a whole community, but for which an organization might not otherwise have sufficient funds to afford Azavea's services.

Badger is a family run, family friendly business located on the banks of the Ashuelot River in rural Gilsum, New Hampshire, USA. The business was started back in 1995, in the kitchen of a carpenter who was in desperate need of relief for his rough, dry, cracked hands – the result of working daily in the unforgiving New Hampshire winter chill.

BarberGale provides sustainable brand development and graphic design solutions for companies that market environmentally-positive products, services and corporate values. So what exactly is a sustainable brand? It is a brand that seeks triple bottom line returns by focusing on social, environmental and economic prosperity.

It is a brand that can become a bonfire, easily attracting relationships and customer/advocates who in turn gather kindling (new customers/advocates), so to speak, to fuel the brand's bonfire of awareness.

Bullfrog Power is a Canadian business with a conscience. The organization’s mission is to provide Canadians with easy and practical 100% renewable energy solutions for their homes, businesses and transportation that empower them to create a sustainable world for future generations. A double-bottom line organization, Bullfrog Power donates 10% of its profits to organizations that support sustainability. In Bullfrog’s view, this is business as it should be—good for society as well as its shareholders. B Corporations are required to consider all stakeholders—employees, suppliers, customers, society, the environment and shareholders—when making decisions. Founded to use people’s energy decisions to clean the environment and committed to the principles of accountability and transparency, Bullfrog believes it makes sense to recognize these higher purposes by becoming a B Corp. We hope to use the opportunity to strengthen our policies and ultimately take our work for the environment and fellow Canadians to the next level. Bullfrog's green electricity comes exclusively from wind and hydro facilities that have been certified as low impact by Environment Canada under its EcoLogoM program—instead of from polluting sources like coal, oil, natural gas and nuclear. A clean, renewable alternative to fossil-fuel based natural gas, Bullfrog's green natural gas is produced in Canada from biogas facilities that have met strict environmental criteria as defined by ICF International. By choosing Bullfrog Power's green energy, homes and businesses can reduce their environmental impact, support the development of new renewable generation in Canada and help to create a cleaner world for today and tomorrow.

Bullfrog Power believes that consumers—through their purchasing decisions—have a unique power to change the world. Canadians who make the choice for green energy help transform the energy landscape by increasing the amount of renewable energy being injected onto the energy systems, and by sending a powerful message to industry and government about the importance of advancing green energy. Currently, thousands of Canadian homes and businesses are doing their part to address climate change and air pollution by switching to green energy with Bullfrog Power—but Bullfrog needs to grow in order to fully realize its vision. Powering a green energy movement needs more than energy. It needs leadership—looking ahead and believing in a sustainable future—to make that first leap and maintain momentum.

An integral part of Bum Boosa® Bamboo Products' mission is to provide an alternative material (bamboo-derived) for disposable personal care products, specifically baby wipes which are most often made from polymer fibers from petroleum, and bathroom tissue which is commonly made from tree pulp.

They are partnered with Trees for the Future and Carbonfund.org.

Most successful people possess the skills required to manage their day-to-day income and expenses, and to evaluate the merits of individual opportunities.

Cellular Recycler’s mission is to partner with non-profit organizations, businesses and schools to provide fund raising programs and responsible disposal options by recycling used cellular phones. Organizations simply gather used phones, fill up the recycling kit provided and receive a check for a donation to the charity of their choice. All collected phones are either refurbished and reused or recycled in the United States according to EPA standards. We became a B Corp to further our efforts to keep e-waste out of landfills. We look forward to engaging the B Corp community to discover new ways we can all contribute to a zero waste society. Cellular Recyler 15.0 30.3 15.8 9.3 21.9 Boulder, CO 92.3 cellularrecycler According to J.D. Power and Associates, the average consumer upgrades his or her phone every 16 to 18 months. This has resulted in an estimated 93,000 tons of “retired” cell phones in the U.S. Less than 10% of those retired phones are recycled (source: CTIA) leaving a potential 83,700 tons of cell phones sitting idle in our homes or in landfills. These cell phones contain hazardous substances that can potentially leach into groundwater. Cellular Recycler wants to not only eliminate this waste but help much deserving non-profit organizations raise money for their causes. None None

The Change believes that transparency is not going away, and that sustainability has to be a mainstream pursuit if it is ever going to actually be sustainable. A strategic approach to branding and communication is what helps the good guys win, and creates the kind of large-scale cultural shift that values authenticity over corporate doublespeak; action over empty promises; and an integrated approach to economics that sees business as a means to ensuring our collective well-being, not an end in itself.

What started as friends looking for a personal solution transformed into a much larger effort with the potential for great impact. Their goals are threefold: (1) Source the most fair diamonds and use reclaimed metals to create beautiful, timeless jewelry to match the top jewelers; (2) Support miners and their communities by investing 100% of our profits into non-profit organizations that build schools, champion education, and rehabilitate abandoned mines; and (3) Create a new type of business that makes accomplishing our first two goals possible.

The mission of Clean Fund is to enable intelligent energy investments. They do this by providing 100% financing for energy efficiency and renewable energy improvements of commercial and industrial properties. Their innovative project finance structure is called Property Assessed Clean Energy or PACE, and their team includes individuals who created the concept and who have helped pass the enabling legislation. Initially centered in California, Clean Fund’s business is expanding nationwide as cities and counties across the country launch their own PACE programs. We became a B Corp because the B Corp philosophy and structure provide us with an essential guide and benchmarking mechanism as our business grows and evolves. The innovation of PACE finance is a public-private structure that allows private capital to profitably deliver public goods. Government provides marketplace rules and contributes the property tax mechanism to support loan repayment, thereby enabling the private sector to profitably invest in energy efficiency and renewable generation projects. The result is a stable, long-term “win-win” in the form of job creation, more profitable businesses, healthier buildings and a cleaner environment. Clean Fund believes this simple alignment of public and private interests provides a far more powerful mechanism for achieving massive energy and environmental benefits than rules, regulations and appeals to conscience.

Clean Yield operates with the belief that virtually every financial transaction has a moral dimension and, often, a social impact. The company helps clients avoid profiting from the exploitation of people and the environment, while working with clients and their capital to press for a healthier, more sustainable society. We became a B Corp to heighten awareness—our own and others’—that business success should be measured by not just financial gain but also as contribution to a sustainable, humane world. A pioneer in the field of socially responsible investing (SRI), Clean Yield began in 1985 as a stock-market newsletter that provided buy and sell advice on socially and financially screened securities. Subscribers could avoid tobacco, alcohol, gambling, pornography, weapons, nuclear power, defense contractors, and a number of other areas of concern. Instead, they could direct their investments toward companies with products and services making positive social contributions. Within two years, the principals formed Clean Yield Asset Management, which serves SRI clients by buying and selling securities on their behalf. Clean Yield’s services also include community investing, slow-money investing, and “shareholder activism”—i.e., using the ownership of a company’s shares for leverage in advancing corporate responsibility.
