A Certified B Corporation
We are a painting company committed to being a force for good!
In 2016, Two Dudes Painting Company earned certification as a B Corporation, an acknowledgment of the company’s commitment to social and environmental ethics, transparency, and accountability. Two Dudes joins over 1,800 Certified B Corporations globally that met rigorous standards for measuring a company’s impact on their employees, suppliers, community, and the environment.
What is a Certified B Corporation?
Similar to the Fair-Trade certification for coffee or USDA Organic certification to milk, B Corporation certification ensures the sustainability of a business. Certified B Corporations are leaders in a global movement of people using business as a force for good. They meet the highest standards of ethical organizational practices and aspire to use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.
Why do B Corps matter?
Certified B Corporations are redefining business success. By voluntarily meeting higher standards of transparency, accountability, and performance, Certified B Corporations distinguish themselves in a cluttered marketplace. They aspire to benefit all and do no harm through their products, practices, and profits, offering a positive vision of a better way to do business.
