From the beginning, Varsity was founded to help create social impact through the use of technology. And our goal as an organization remains focused on helping all of our clients use technology to achieve greater impact.
For example, we can help create or suggest a new service that reduces costs and increases dollars spent on impact; or help an organization better understand a technology solution and how it can improve their core programming. It’s something we think about and work on every day.
We are a mission-driven organization ourselves, and strive to make social impact just like our clients do. We work with a clear purpose, and have made strategic decisions in that regard.
For example, our VarsityGives program has contributed over $100,000 in direct dollar donations over the past 5 years to other social impact organizations. We volunteer our time in support of others, and we are a Certified Benefit Corporation (B Corp) with a strong focus on sustainable business practices.
Certified Benefit Corporation (B Corp)
Varsity is a Certified Benefit Corporation (B Corp). That means we made an intentional decision to become and remain a business that balances jointly-held goals around People, Planet, and Profit.
We are also held accountable to uphold certain ethical business standards that are evaluated on a yearly basis. We join a community of other B Corporations that are looking to change how businesses operate in the world and use business as a force for good.
We have been honored over the years with awards from the B Corp community for our ongoing commitment to these goals.
2019 – Best for the World – Governance Honoree
2018 – Best for the World – Governance Honoree
2013 – Best for the World – Workers Honoree
And as a B Corp, we continually strive to meet the highest standards of social and environmental impact.
We are committed to sustainability in our business practices. We integrate sustainable practices into our organization, and the into the work we perform for our clients. It’s one of the reasons we have consistently scored in the top 10% of all B Corps for overall social and environmental impact. Your organization will benefit from our years of thought leadership and action in this area. Some examples:
• 100% carbon neutral: Varsity OneCloud Hosting Services
• 100% PZEV/Eco Hybrid Fleet Vehicles
• California Green Certified Business
• LEED Certified SF office building
• All IT hardware is Energy Star certified, EPEAT silver or higher
