For over a decade, Real Leaders – the world’s first and leading business and sustainable leadership magazine – has been recognizing leaders and organizations that make a positive social or environmental impact with the Real Leaders Impact Awards.
We are very proud to announce that VivoPower has earned our first such award, not to mention a top 50 ranking (No. 47) among 150 leading companies.
As a certified B Corp since 2018, we earned this spot thanks to our “Force for Good” score on the B Impact Assessment. We are one of the few B Corps in our industry, and we use this status to set an example of sustainable business practices for others.
“VivoPower is honored to accept its first Real Leaders Impact Award,” said Kevin Chin, our executive chairman and CEO. “The company’s core purpose is to generate sustainable energy solutions to help both our customers and our planet. This aligns with the Real Leaders mission to find profitable solutions to the problems that 7.5 billion people have created on a small planet that also benefit humankind.”
The achievement puts us in the elite company of brands such as Tesla, Patagonia and, of course, our parent company and largest shareholder, Arowana.
For the second straight year, Real Leaders has recognized Arowana’s commitment to the triple bottom line of people, planet and profits. In 2020, they even garnered a top 10 ranking when the list included 100 companies. This year they appear at No. 27 on the expanded list.
Both VivoPower and Arowana will be honored during a special ceremony on 27 January.
Real Leaders was founded by Mark Van Ness, an active impact investor and entrepreneur who promotes business as a force for good. For more details, visit real-leaders.com.
