“Source 44 has reached yet another inspiring and monumental summit in the business world,” said Jess Kraus, Source 44 President and CEO. ”It’s a great honor to be considered as one of America’s premier and driving companies that promote the triple bottom line (people, planet, and profits).”
Source 44 was selected based upon the criteria of being a “social enterprise – a sustainable business that creates social or environmental value alongside profit.”
“This honor is even more meaningful coming from an organization like Bloomberg Businessweek,” Kraus said. “The magazine has more than 4.7 million readers in 140 countries, and the recognition and exposure provided by this platform is outstanding.
“We started a little over a year ago with the concept that companies can benefit by knowing what’s in the products they sell and manufacture, and have now progressed to the point that we’re helping implement Sustainability programs for some of the best and brightest companies in America,” Kraus said. “ Companies who want to position their brand as Sustainable are finding Source 44 to be an affordable solution – a solution augmented by the veracity of our Sustainability data.”
