Portable Electric is B Corp Certified!

What is a B Corp?

These businesses meet the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. They prioritize more than just profit and are also invested in the well-being of people and the planet.

Why Portable Electric became a B Corp?

Since our inception, we have always been a purpose-led organization. B Corporations value purpose as much as profit and use business as a force for good. At Portable Electric, we consider the impact of the choices we make every day and view those choices as an opportunity to better ourselves.

The B Corp seal of approval shows our employees, shareholders, partners and customers that we are willing to hold ourselves to the highest social and environmental standards and commit to being transparent and accountable in everything we do. It’s going to be a long, hard road ahead, but the planet is worth it.
