Why an award for marketplace ethics?
This program was established to honor outstanding businesses whose commitment to ethical business practices helps to uphold a fair marketplace.
The mission of the Better Business Bureau is to promote and foster the highest ethical relationship between businesses and the public through voluntary self-regulation, consumer and business education, and service excellence.
In this spirit, the Better Business Bureau conducts an annual awards program to gain public recognition for businesses that maintain a solid commitment to conducting their business practices in an ethical fashion. Each year, companies of different sizes are selected through a regional competition to receive the Torch Award. The Award is designed to promote not only the importance of ethical business practices, but the willingness and efforts made by outstanding businesses to ensure that our marketplace remains fair and honorable.
