Boston, Massachusetts – April 5, 2019 Today, at the 2019 Momentum (MO) Summit for Impact Investors in Asheville, North Carolina, BlueWave Solar (BlueWave) accepted the Real Leaders award as the #12 most impactful company of 2019. The inaugural Top 100 Impact Companies award, sponsored by Real Leaders, Big Path Capital, and B Lab, ranks top companies around the world using business to positively affect the communities they work in, live in, and serve.
“The Real Leaders 100 list is the first ranking of positive impact companies in North America and leverages the engine of capitalism for great profit and great good,” said Michael Whelchel, Managing Partner, Big Path Capital. “Because of high demand, we are expanding the list globally in 2020,” added Whelchel.
The top 100 ranking was calculated using the following formula to determine a “Force for Good” score for each eligible company: three-year growth rate (%) x 2017 revenues x B-impact assessment score.
The MO Summit recognizes and celebrates the 100 winning impact companies, convening top CEOs who are scaling high-growth, positive-impact companies using the power and creativity of business.
BlueWave’s Co-Founder and Chairman, John DeVillars, attended the MO Summit in Asheville to accept the award on BlueWave’s behalf, commenting, “We’re by no means perfect, but we try very hard to honor our values and to make a meaningful impact in the climate change battle and the fight for environmental and social justice. More and more companies across the country are doing the same, and we’re honored to be included among them.”
