About B Corporations

B Corporations are leaders of the global movement of people using business as a force for goodTM.

There are over 2,400 Certified B Corporations from more than 130 industries in 50+ countries with 1 unifying goal – to redefine success in business.

B Corps are important because they inspire all businesses to compete not only to be the best in the world, but to be the best for the world.

To be B-Corp certified, companies must meet the non-profit B-Lab’s rigorous assessment of the company’s standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. VivoPower International PLC was assessed and will be required to recertify every two years to maintain our certification.

Why VivoPower became a B Corp

The core principals of B Corps reflect beliefs and goals that are inspiring, and are consistent with both our core mission of developing solar energy projects and the values of our people. As one of the few B Corps in our industry, (and the only public solar company) we hope to set an example for others. We also believe that the B Corp designation will help to raise our profile with customers, industry participants and shareholders, particularly as the goals of sustainable business practices become embraced by more companies.
