Recycle Track Systems has been recognized for being among companies creating the most positive environmental impact based on an independent, comprehensive assessment administered by the nonprofit B Lab.

The full assessment measures a company’s impact on its workers, community, customers and the environment.

To certify as B Corporations, companies like RTS must complete the full assessment and have their answers verified by B Lab.

The Environment portion of the B Impact Assessment evaluates a company’s environmental performance through its facilities, materials, emissions and resource and energy use.

Companies answer questions about their transportation/distribution channels and the environmental impact of their supply chain.

“With the rise of anger at a system that feels rigged, people are hungry for companies like Recycle Track Systems, who are changing the system by building businesses that seek to create the greatest positive impact,” said Jay Coen Gilbert, cofounder of B Lab, in a statement.

“Best For The World is the only list of businesses that uses comprehensive, comparable, third-party-validated data about a company’s social and environmental performance. As consumers, talent and investors increasingly demand transparent, values-aligned businesses to buy from, work at and invest in, companies will need to not just the best in the world but the best for the world, and not just to be nice but to be the most successful.” Nearly 1,000 Certified B Corporations were named 2018 Best for the World Honorees, including Patagonia, King Arthur Flour Company, Green Mountain Power and the United Kingdom’s Charity Bank.
