Aquatic Informatics Inc., a global leader in providing innovative software solutions for hydrologic data management and analysis, announced today that it has achieved B Corporation Certification. The prestigious designation is awarded to companies that use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems, while meeting higher standards of performance, transparency, and accountability. B Lab is a nonprofit organization that recognizes companies that are not only the best in the world, but also the best for the world.

"Our mission is to deliver the most innovative solutions for managing the planet's environmental data, enabling better decisions through simplified data management, analysis, and information sharing," shared Ed Quilty, President and CEO at Aquatic Informatics. "Aquatic Informatics is the first natural water resource management software vendor to achieve B Corporation Certification. This recognition validates our efforts to empower environmental monitoring organizations with better insight for the sustainable management and safeguard of the world's precious water resources."

Water is the critical issue this century.

Only 2% of all water on our planet is fit for human consumption. Critical for human survival, safe water is required for drinking, sanitation, agriculture, hydropower, mining, infrastructure, and industry. The growing population is increasing demand for safe water, yet pollution is reducing its availability. Global warming is causing more extreme weather patterns, including more floods and droughts. Timely, accurate hydrological information is required to solve today's complex water resource challenges.

Modern water monitoring instruments and telemetry are creating unprecedented volumes of real-time hydrological data. Environmental monitoring organizations, including the US Geological Survey and Water Survey of Canada, are retiring spreadsheets and legacy custom systems. They are adopting AQUARIUS Time Series software to turn big water data into insight. Aquatic Informatics is today's de facto standard for water management software, with over 400 customers worldwide in 37 countries.

B Lab distinguishes Aquatic Informatics as a global leader for natural water management software.

Aquatic Informatics was rigorously and independently evaluated against the "B Impact Assessment." B Lab reviewed Aquatic Informatics' impact models, practices, policies, and achievements, confirming the company's contribution in solving the world's most challenging environmental problems.

Aquatic Informatics has officially joined a leading global movement to redefine success of for-profit companies by voluntarily using the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. Certified B Corporations are distinguishing themselves in a cluttered marketplace by offering a positive vision of a better way to do business. They officially create higher quality jobs and improve the quality of life in our communities.

"In addition to passing our social and environmental impact assessment, Aquatic Informatics successful proved its commitment to B Corporation values," said Jay Coen Gilbert, co-founder of B Lab. "Aquatic Informatics is one of the fastest growing clean technology companies in Canada and an industry leader in software solutions for hydrologic data management and analysis. We are pleased to welcome Aquatic Informatics to the B Corp community."
