B Lab, the nonprofit behind the “B Corporation” certification, has announced its Best for the World Honorees for 2018 and among the list of B Corporations honored is Sunrise Banks, winning in the Overall category for the sixth consecutive year.
“It is truly an honor to be named to this list once again,” says Sunrise CEO, David Reiling, “we are committed to doing well by doing good every day and we’re excited to see more and more companies joining the movement.”
In addition to their Overall honor, Sunrise has also been named “Best for Customers”, and “Best Governance” after their company score in B Lab’s B Corp scoring matrix was among the top percentiles of all B Corporations internationally.
Sunrise is joined by six other Minnesota B Corps on this year’s list including:
- CR-Building Performance Specialists: Environment, Governance
- Global Gaming Initiative: Community
- Last Triumph: Overall, Community
- Peace Coffee: Community
- Russell Herder: Governance
- thedatabank, Gbc.: Overall, Customers
The Best for the World Awards highlight companies using the power of business to achieve a higher purpose than profit maximization. They strive to use business as a force for good: good for workers, good for communities, good for the environment. They redefine success in business by competing to be not just best in the world, but best for the world. Sunrise Banks has been a certified B Corporation since 2009 and was the first company to hold the distinction in Minnesota.
