11.10.2023: Leading EV charging software company Monta has announced its certification as a B Corporation and is now joining a growing group of companies reinventing business by pursuing purpose as well as profit.
Monta has been certified by B Lab, the not-for-profit behind the B Corp movement, as having met rigorous social and environmental standards which represent its commitment to goals outside of shareholder profit.
The B Corp certification addresses the entirety of a business’ operations and covers five key impact areas of Governance, Workers, Community, Environment and Customers. The certification process is rigorous, with applicants required to reach a benchmark score of over 80 while providing evidence of socially and environmentally responsible practices relating to energy supplies, waste and water use, worker compensation, diversity and corporate transparency. To complete the certification, the company will legally embed their commitment to purpose beyond profit in their company articles.
Recent attention on the e-mobility sector makes Monta’s B Corp certification a notable step and signals a shift towards greater accountability and transparency in the sector.
Founder and Executive Director of the B Corp Nordics, Nille Skalts, says:
“We are delighted to welcome Monta to the B Corp community. This is a movement of companies who are committed to changing how business operates and believe business really can be a force for good. We know that Monta is going to be a fantastic addition to the community and will continue driving the conversation forward.”
“We are pleased to have B Corps of all shapes and sizes as part of our community – from startups to multinationals and across many different industries. Business is a powerful force and B Corps demonstrate that you can do good in any sector. Welcoming Monta is an exciting moment because they have an opportunity to lead the way within the EV charging industry. We and the rest of the B Corp community are really pleased to support Monta in paving the way for a new way of doing things.” Nille Skalts says.
“Being able to welcome Monta to the B Corp community is hugely exciting. Their commitment to doing business differently will be an inspiration to others and really help spread the idea that we can redefine success in business to be as much about people and planet as it is about profit,” Nille Skalts says.
