How AC Power's B Corp Status Reinforces Our Commitment to Community



Since its establishment in 2017, AC Power has been unwavering in its commitment to transforming underdog land parcels into vital contributors to the clean energy transition. This commitment, coupled with a deep-seated dedication to social responsibility and environmental stewardship, propelled the company to pursue B Corp certification early in its journey.  The B Lab™ mission— to lead the global economy's transformation for the benefit of people, communities, and the planet— aligns seamlessly with AC Power's foundational objectives of creating a world better than we found it.


Now, we are thrilled to announce that AC Power has successfully earned B Corp certification, scoring an impressive 98.3. This certification marks our entry into a global network of companies held to the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability.


The certification process is comprehensive and rigorous, delving into not only a company's environmental footprint but also scrutinizing how businesses interact with all stakeholders, from investors and owners to part-time employees and vendors. This in-depth evaluation ensures that every facet of the company's operations is aligned with the overarching goals of sustainable and equitable business practices. It is an affirmation that AC Power's commitments are manifested in our daily operations and long-term strategies.


Points are assigned based on the company's structure and operational practices. The average score of businesses that complete the assessment is 50.9 points, highlighting the rigorous nature of the evaluation. To be eligible for certification, a company must score a minimum of 80 points. This stringent criterion ensures that only organizations demonstrating a substantial commitment to social and environmental responsibility achieve the esteemed B Corp certification.



This milestone represents a tangible embodiment of AC Power's core value of Stewardship. Stewardship speaks to centering the lasting legacy our projects leave on the communities they inhabit. By becoming a B Corp certified company, AC Power reinforces its dedication to leaving a positive impact, ensuring that this commitment extends beyond the physical landscapes we enhance.


In line with the B Corp philosophy, we see our business as a force for good, intertwining profitability with environmental responsibility and social equity. Through innovative repurposing of brownfield sites, we aim to provide clean energy solutions through the rejuvenation of land, making them valuable assets to the community once again.


By achieving B Corp certification, we also join a community of forward-thinking companies who are leading by example, demonstrating that business success and positive impact can go hand in hand. These companies, like us, have committed to transparency, accountability, and continuous improvement, setting new standards for what it means to be a successful business in today's world.


Our journey doesn’t stop here. B Corp certification is not simply a feather in our cap to tout in conversation. It is a commitment to continuous improvement and accountability, and we are excited to use this framework to guide our future sustainability work, deepen our community engagement, and continue to grow our impact.


The AC Power mission of "reenergizing communities—one brownfield at a time" is about holistic revitalization. It reflects our desire to foster, supportive, inclusive, and healthy communities around our projects and beyond. We take pride in being a fair, diverse, and equitable workplace and partner, recognizing the invaluable contributions of the individuals who make our projects possible. This certification is a testament to our commitment to making a difference in every community we touch, including the AC Power community. Let’s continue to move forward, driven by purpose, fueled by the sun, and guided by our shared values as a proud B Corp certified company.
