“We are honored to, again, be chosen as a Real Leader. Since our founding, Badger has been committed to ensuring our work benefits people and the planet in equal measure—from family-friendly practices to a solar-powered manufacturing facility,” said Rebecca Hamilton, Co-CEO of W.S. Badger Company. “It’s inspiring to find ourselves in the company of so many terrific organizations (including many of our fellow Certified B Corps) demonstrating how business can be a force for good in creating a better world.”
Since 2019, the Real Leaders Impact Awards has honored 100 companies in the global impact economy. 2021 saw that number expand to 150 organizations.
“These top impact companies prove that businesses can thrive by being a force for good," commented Mark Van Ness, founder of Real Leaders. “They are the Real Leaders of the New Economy.”
A special ceremony will be held on January 27, 2021, to honor the winners and will include key impact speakers featuring Seth Goldman, chairman of Beyond Meat and a musical performance from Michael Franti, a musician and activist.
