Green Mountain Power received B Corps certification for meeting rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.

GMP is the first electric utility provider in the world to receive this certification from B Lab.

To get a B Corp certification, GMP had to demonstrate its record of accomplishment and ongoing commitment in four areas: environment, employees, community and governance.

Jay Coen Gilbert, a co-founder of B Lab, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield and other Vermont companies, joined Green Mountain Power as they accepted this distinguished certification at a celebration held at their Colchester headquarters.
