Beaverton, OR – CTL, a global cloud computing solution leader for education and enterprise, announced today it is now certified by B LabTM as a Certified B CorporationTM for its commitment to sustainability for its workers, community, customers, and the environment.

“While CTL is known for its series of technological innovations on ChromeOS devices, today we’re taking our innovation strategy to the next step. As a ChromeOS computer manufacturer, we’re leading the way to put sustainability at the core of our business and achieve this prestigious worldwide designation. We’re thrilled to call ourselves a B CorpTM, and we look forward to continuing our drive for sustainable cloud computing innovation in the years to come,” said Erik Stromquist, CEO of CTL.

B Corp Certification means that a company has been verified as meeting B Lab’s high standards for social and environmental impact, that it has made a legal commitment to stakeholder governance, and that it is demonstrating accountability and transparency by disclosing this record of performance in a public B Corp profile.
