At The Best Shades, our commitment to Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles is more than just a business strategy; it’s a reflection of our core values and a crucial aspect of our operations.

The launch of our ESG page marks a significant step in our journey to integrate these practices thoroughly into every facet of our business, a journey greatly enriched by our participation in the sustainability cohort with WBEC Metro NY.

An agent of change

Our engagement with WBEC Metro NY has been transformative, offering us invaluable insights into the importance of ESG in business. Being part of this cohort helped us realize how integrating ESG practices could not only enhance our business operations but also align closely with what we deeply care about—sustainability, ethical practices, and social responsibility.

ESG practices are about creating value in ways that not only generate economic returns but also contribute positively to the social systems and environmental health upon which we all depend. For small businesses, this might seem daunting, but the support and resources provided by networks like WBEC Metro NY or the WBENC (Women Business Entreprise National Council) can make this transition feasible and rewarding.

Key Aspects of Our ESG Practices

Environmental Responsibility

At The Best Shades, our commitment to the environment is at the core of everything we do. We carefully select products that promote not only energy efficiency but also broader sustainable practices, significantly reducing reliance on non-renewable energy sources, lowering energy consumption and minimizing our carbon footprint. 

Our dedication to sustainability extends beyond just our products; it influences our operational practices, ensuring that we contribute positively to environmental conservation and continuously seek new ways to enhance our eco-friendly initiatives.

Social Responsibility

Our community engagement initiatives, particularly through our Community Window platform, highlight local businesses and provide resources to foster a thriving business ecosystem. This platform not only supports our community but also enhances our company’s social impact.

Why Small Businesses Should Embrace ESG

For small businesses, adopting ESG practices can seem challenging, but the benefits far outweigh the initial hurdles. These practices can lead to:

  • Improved risk management
  • Enhanced brand reputation
  • Greater appeal to investors and customers who prioritize corporate responsibility
  • Increased competitiveness in the marketplace

Moreover, engaging in ESG practices supports broader societal goals, such as reducing inequality, safeguarding the environment, and building stronger communities—all of which contribute to a sustainable and prosperous society.

One Way to Get Started

For businesses looking to embark on their ESG journey, WBEC offers a treasure trove of resources and a supportive community. Getting certified with WBEC not only opens doors to these resources but also connects you to a network of like-minded businesses and potential partners.

We encourage other small businesses to explore the opportunities that WBEC certification can offer. It’s a step towards not only transforming your business but also making a positive impact on the world.
