About Eleek

Founded in 2000, Eleek is a sustainable design and manufacturing business specializing in high-style lighting and other decorative building parts. Eleek also offers custom design and manufacturing, as well as lighting restoration, replication and retrofitting services.

We became a B Corporation to support the organization's good work and to align ourselves with the fine work of so many other good companies.

The Change We Seek™ 

As a Certified B Corporation, Eleek takes pride in being a force for good and a leader in this revolutionary movement toward corporate transparency, accountability and sustainability. In the early years of running their business, a customer deliberately cheated them and then unapologetically announced, "that's business!" That experience solidified what they already knew intuitively--that they wanted their personal values to be manifest in every aspect of their business. At the end of their lives, they want to know that their business did good in the world and did no harm. What Eleek really values about B Corporation is that they've created the lens, tools and standards through which to view, measure and compare their company to others that claim to be values-driven. The greenwashers get washed away, letting the best companies shine and tell their stories.

What makes us a better company?
