We are now a Certified B Corporation!
After two years of working hard to meet the rigorous requirements of this great movement, we are proud to announce Upward Technology is the 1st B Corp in our industry in the great Northwest!
What does it mean to be B Certified? Certified B Corporations meet higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. B Corporations are leaders of the global movement of people using business as a force for good.TM
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).
We really believe it’s the way business should be run these days and we’re happy to be leaders in our field. We hope more businesses will join us in this movement. Please let us know if you’d like hear more about our experience and how we did it!
Big Ups to SOLVE
We highlighted our work with SOLVE of Oregon in our application. A big contributor to our success! Pictured is our group volunteering for their annual litter cleanup!
Thanks to Sparky!
Another win for us was the amount we were able to decrease our emissions thanks to our excellent electric vehicle (nicknamed Sparky). We use it for almost 95% of our clients visits at this point
