We became a B Corp because we saw real value in embracing a 3rd party assessment focused on benchmarking socially aware businesses. Through the assessment, we can take a step back and analyze our business according to a balanced scorecard, taking all ecosystem stakeholders into account. Through the B Corp community we can expand our ecosystem to include like-minded businesses, improving our ability to deliver on our Social Business vision.

The Change We Seek®

NRG’s long time vision has always been to create “depth of impact” within the community. In 2016, this means not just connecting with your geographical community, but your digital community, as well. They seek to create a true Social Business that continually adds value to its ecosystem by co-creating in the places where they gather. They are passionate about insurance and assessing risk. To them, this means more than just writing a policy. It means really connecting with customers and partners, supporting local and other female-owned businesses, and fostering Social interchange through new digital channels.
