The Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) Certification is a certification that certifies that the company has met the requirements for minority-owned businesses. This certification is awarded by the US Department of Commerce and has different levels of achievement, from Bronze to Platinum. MBE Certification helps minority-owned businesses increase their competitiveness in procurement and increases their chances to be awarded government contracts.
B Corp Certification
B Corp certification is a rigorous process that requires companies to meet higher standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.
Companies will face a number of challenges if they are to maintain high standards of performance. The certification process is rigorous and requires companies to meet higher standards. These include social, environmental, and economic factors. Companies must also be accountable and transparent, as well as have an independent third party certify that they are meeting these standards.
The Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB) and Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB)
The Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB) and Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) certifications are for businesses that are at least 51% owned by one or more service-disabled veterans.
There are a number of structural or interior updates that can be done to help you achieve LEED Certification. This is worth it since there are tax credits, fee waivers and grants available.
