Last year was a good year at Rivanna, and we are happy to present our 2022 Impact Report.
Virginia law requires that VA Benefit Corporations provide an annual narrative description of the ways in which they pursued the generable public benefit during the previous fiscal year, the extent to which the general public benefit was created, and any circumstances that hindered the creation of the general public or any specific public benefit. This report is intended as our public disclosure for our fiscal year ending December 31, 2022.
Creating a thoughtful and accurate report is not a simple task. Each year, it's a balancing act. Like most B Corps and companies that seriously measure and manage their impacts, we've got an exhaustive amount of data that we can share. At the same time, we want our impact report to be engaging and useful for our customers. We are one of the few sustainable trophy vendors in the country. We understand that most customers visit our website to shop for eco friendly plaque and awards, and not to immerse themselves in the chronicle of our efforts to reduce our Scope 3 GHG emissions. If you happen to be one of those customers who wants all the details, by all means let us know what other information you need, and we would be happy to provide it for you.
We are deeply grateful to our friends at Unit Co. for revolutionizing the process of Impact Report creation for small businesses. Unit Co. was started by three small businesses — Certified B Corps all — who were looking for a user-friendly product to help them measure and report social and environmental impacts. 2022 was our second year of using Unit Co. to prepare our Impact Report. The product just keeps getting better, and we could not be more pleased it!
We hope that you will take the time to read our Impact Report. If you have questions or would like more details regarding our work or our impacts, please don't hesitate to contact us.
