Certified B Corp

We believe companies should make more than just money; they should make a difference. That’s why we joined companies like Patagonia and Seventh Generation in redefining success in business by competing not to be the best IN the world, but to be the best FOR the world. As a Certified B Corp, we commit to meeting the highest standard of social and environmental impact.

Our Impact

We measure success by our impact on people and the planet.

In 2017, our solar installs and green certifications positively impacted


and had an environmental impact equivalent to

Impact_Cars Removed Metric
Impact_Trees Planted Metric
Impact_Waste Recycled Metric

Local Outreach

As a B Corp, we love to “B the Change.” We strive to be a better company for the environment, for our workers, and for our local community. That’s why SEM gives each team member paid time off to volunteer — equivalent to 7 weeks of volunteer time each year. Check out some of our favorite volunteer memories!
