On Monday, September 24, Social Enterprise Greenhouse, in partnership with Rhode Island Commerce Corporation and Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce, marked the first year of Best for RI by celebrating the entire Best for RI community and specially honoring a few businesses that stand out for their commitment to using "business as a force for good."
Outstanding achievement awards were given to Blount Fine Foods, half full, llc, Pinpoint Translation Services, and West View Nursing and Rehabilitation Center for their overall high performance on the B Impact Assessment. Bradford Soap Works brought home an environmental sustainability award, and Advanced Remarketing Services was honored for its community giving practices.
The event took place at the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce Economic Luncheon. In addition to the outpouring of support from the business community, The Best for Rhode Island initiative has received support from state government leadership and our congressional delegation. Following the awards, Congressman Jim Langevin granted a special citation to each awardee.
