Certified B Corporation
Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corps are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.
Society’s most challenging problems cannot be solved by government and nonprofits alone. The B Corp community works toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of more high quality jobs with dignity and purpose. By harnessing the power of business, B Corps use profits and growth as a means to a greater end: positive impact for their employees, communities, and the environment.
B Corps form a community of leaders and drive a global movement of people using business as a force for good. The values and aspirations of the B Corp community are embedded in the B Corp Declaration of Interdependence.
We envision a global economy that uses business as a force for good.
This economy is comprised of a new type of corporation - the B Corporation -
Which is purpose-driven and creates benefit for all stakeholders, not just shareholders.
As B Corporations and leaders of this emerging economy, we believe:
That we must be the change we seek in the world.
That all business ought to be conducted as if people and place mattered.
That, through their products, practices, and profits, businesses should aspire to do no harm and benefit all.
To do so requires that we act with the understanding that we are each dependent upon another and thus responsible for each other and future generations.
Here are some of the ways that Morton Solar uses it business as a Force for Good!

ALICE M. WEATHERS CAPE DONATION
Alice M. Weathers was the former executive director of the Community Action Program of Evansville (CAPE). She had a passion for solar energy and recognized that solar could benefit the low-income tremendously. For several years, Ms. Weathers would pursue grants to fund the installation on low-income housing units. And, over the years, approximately 15 systems were installed in Vanderburgh and Gibson Counties. Some of the earliest systems were installed in 2010-2012 and these were some of the building blocks to educate the public and prove that solar works here. It was crucial that these system were designed and installed properly so Ms. Weathers worked with Morton Solar to make sure they successful. In 2021, Morton Solar was finally able to donate two systems back to CAPE for their service to the community and mission to help those with the most need for reducing their energy costs.
