(St. Paul, Minn. | July 13, 2022) — Sunrise Banks has been recognized as a Best for the World B Corporation for the ninth year in a row for its commitment to creating a positive impact beyond the bottom line.
This year, Sunrise was recognized in the Customers and Governance categories. Organizations that are recognized in the Customer category are honored for providing vital services to customers, while also adding value to their lives and supporting the greater good. Winners in the Governance category are recognized for their commitment to corporate transparency and accountability.
Best for the World is a distinction granted by B Lab to Certified B Corporations (B Corps) whose verified B Impact Scores in the five impact areas evaluated in the B Impact Assessment — community, customers, environment, governance, and workers — rank in the top 5% of all B Corps in their corresponding size group.
Every year, B Lab recognizes the top-performing B Corps creating the greatest positive impact through their businesses. More than a badge of honor, the “Best for the World” distinction provides an opportunity for recognized companies to share knowledge, learnings, and best practices with the B Corp community and non-B Corp businesses to encourage innovation and transformation across the business sector.
“It’s an honor to again receive this award from B Lab and we commend all the other organizations being recognized,” said Sunrise Banks CEO David Reiling. “We are proud to be a part of the B Corp community and are passionate about our purpose-driven work.”
