For The World honors go to the top 10% of Certified

across 64 countries and 150 industries, dedicated to using business as a force
for good and a shared goal of redefining business success. The Best For The World ranking puts Clear

World: Governance list. The 2019 Best For The World honorees are identified
on the basis of the verified B Impact Assessments of Certified B Corporations.
The full lists are available on https://bcorporation.net.
B Lab doesn’t just evaluate a company’s product or service,
it assesses the company’s overall positive impact. It evaluates how a company’s
operations and business model affect its workers, community, environment and
customers. To achieve the B Corp Certification, a company must attain at least
80 points on the assessment.
“It was Clear Blue Commercial’s goal since our founding five years
ago to become a B Corp, and this honor is a recognition of philosophies we have
long embraced,” said Carolyn Pistone, president and managing director. “Because
commercial buildings are the world’s largest single source of greenhouse gases,
we knew we had a role to play in helping our clients operate more sustainably.
We help them save money while saving the planet. We actually didn’t set out to
be a differentiator, but we want every company to think about its impact on the
environment and make conscious choices to improve the human condition and the
Clear Blue Commercial’s mission is to help improve negative environmental impacts through real estate, setting the bar for responsible and successful businesses around the world. As a property manager, it introduces sustainability practices to decrease energy and water usage, saving its clients millions of dollars a year. Other services include thoughtful business operations and decision-making on even everyday practices like office product purchases. Clear Blue Commercial is the only commercial real estate firm certified as a Bay Area Green Business, a Women-Owned Business and a B Corp. “We’re incredibly proud of this year’s Best For The World honorees,” said Anthea Kelsick, B Lab’s chief marketing officer. “These inspiring companies represent the kind of business models and impact-driven business strategies that are building a new economy — one that is inclusive, regenerative and that delivers value to all stakeholders, not just shareholders. To that end, B Corps like Clear Blue Commercial are redefining capitalism and showing that it actually can work for everyone.”
