2023 Civic 50 Award Honoree
We are so excited to announce that Exact Solar has been recognized as a Civic 50 Greater Philadelphia honoree for the second year in a row!
The Civic 50 Greater Philadelphia recognizes civic-minded businesses that are using their time, talent, and resources to drive social impact in their communities. This regional initiative is an outgrowth of the national Civic 50, led by globally-recognized nonprofit Points of Light. The Civic 50 Greater Philadelphia honorees are private and public companies and other employers operating in the Philadelphia region and have been selected based on four dimensions of their community engagement program: investment of resources, integration across business functions, institutionalization through policies and systems, and impact measurement.
Last week, Exact Solar staff members traveled to the FS Investment Corporate Headquarters in Philadelphia, PA, for the 2023 Civic 50 recognition ceremony. It was an honor to sit among other leading businesses and learn how they are also using their platform to make a change.
