Proud to Be a Certified B Corporation
We believe in using business for good.
Green Mountain Power is part of a community of more than 1,100 companies across 60 industries with one unifying goal: redefining success in business. We meet rigorous standards of performance, accountability, and transparency, and are using the power of business to alleviate poverty, address climate changes, and build strong local communities and great places to work.
GMP is committed to our community and the environment, as we transform into Vermont’s Energy Company of the Future to provide our customers with energy efficient products and services to help them save money by using less energy.
Green Mountain Power is the first utility in the world to receive B Corp certification. Other Vermont B Corps joined us for the celebration on December 1, 2014.

Our mission is to embrace a new energy system that can improve lives, reduce costs, and be produced in a more environmentally and economically sustainable way. We are actively pursuing moving away from the traditional grid, to one that is more resilient and reliable, and that uses a series of microgrids through renewable generation and innovative energy storage.
We are also partnering with customers to offer integrated services like eHomes, a total home energy offering, that is already helping Vermonters reduce fossil fuel use and save money.

Why We Became a B Corp
We became a B Corp to deepen our commitment to creating positive change in the community and the environment through a new model of doing business. We embrace the mission to do good in all things we do, putting customers first, and we are very honored to be the first utility to ever get the B Corp designation.
Partnering with Vermonters
GMP is partnering with Vermonters to show that energy can improve lives and transform communities. Energy can spur socio-economic change for residents, helping people save money and move toward more renewable sources. GMP is committed to its employees, customers and Vermont to exceed expectations, and show a new model of doing business that offers holistic energy solutions that move people off of fossil fuels, and creates a new energy future.
