Palmetto Announces B Corp™ Certification

Recognized as a leader in Social and Environmental Performance, Transparency, and Accountability.

CHARLESTON, S.C., March 1, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Palmetto, a clean technology company that designs, builds, manufactures and deploys technology solutions, is proud to announce it's a Certified B Corporation.  Palmetto joins the global B Corp community of businesses that work to redefine success in business by meeting the highest standards of overall social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability.

"We're thrilled to earn our B Corp again and join the over 2000 Certified B Corporations in over 130 industries and 50 countries. At Palmetto, we believe in more than just leading the world towards a clean energy future. We believe in supporting the people, the employees, that carry our mission and the community that drives us to improve and provide sustainable solutions," says Chris Kemper, CEO and Founder of Palmetto. "When we started in 2009, we were based in London, United Kingdom and were among the first, if not the first, B Corporations in Europe.  We are committed the 'cause' and it's fully aligned with our Company's mission."

In fact, unlike traditional corporations, Certified B Corporations are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions not only on their shareholders, but also on their stakeholders (e.g., workers, suppliers, community, consumers, and the environment). To become certified, Palmetto proved the company met stringent performance requirements outlined in the B Impact Assessment, a globally-recognized standard that looks at environmental performance, how a company treats its employees and the impact the company has on its customers and the broader community.

"This certification proves we're not just growing, we're growing the right way for Charleston, for South Carolina, and for the world."
