Best for Colorado honors top companies doing business better

Best for Colorado, a program of The Alliance Center, highlights innovative businesses leading the way in corporate social responsibility.

Denver, Aug. 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Best for Colorado, a program of The Alliance Center, is thrilled to announce our 2020 Best for Colorado Awards Honorees. The annual Best for Colorado Awards Celebration honors Colorado businesses that lead the private sector in using business as a force for good. Values-driven business leaders from across the state gathered virtually to network and celebrate the companies who are dedicated to deepening their social and environmental impacts.

This year’s award categories and honorees are:

Commit to Action Honorees

  • Athena Group, for their work with the greater Durango community to conduct a community-driven strategic planning process on homelessness.

  • Montanya Distillers, for their sanitizer production and donation to front-line workers.

  • Pivot Energy, for their commitment to providing solar opportunities to low/moderate income communities across Colorado.

Measure What Matters Honorees

Changemakers Awards

  • BSW Wealth Partners, an independent wealth management firm that helps make life better and is built to last.

  • Namasté Solar, a local, employee-owned residential and commercial solar company.

Environment Awards

  • Organic India USA, a wellness supplements brand combining Ayurvedic wisdom and modern science.

Workers Award

  • Dojo4, a community‑based, global‑scale, member‑owned tech cooperative that catalyzes positive transformations through exemplary custom technology and design.

“This year we've been reminded that things don't always go according to plan, but that's where creativity can shine,” Karen Hoskin, CEO of Montanya Distillers, said. “We've innovated and created new business models during these times and it's been inspiring to see. It's been a good reminder too that sometimes working hard doesn't always remedy the situation, but being courageous will. You have to be brave enough to take risks, speak your truth, accept new challenges, step outside your comfort zone, and believe that success will come.”

Congratulations to each of our honorees!
