On Oct. 28, 2021, The Better Business Bureau's foundation, the BBB Institute for Marketplace Trust, announced its winners for the BBB International Torch Award for Ethics.
The 2021 winner for Category 1 was Texas Vets Roofing.
Presented annually since 1996, the BBB International Torch Awards recognize companies in North America that maintain an outstanding dedication to upholding ethical business standards and promoting trust in the marketplace.
Winners and finalists are selected by an independent panel of judges.
Businesses are evaluated against criteria such as leadership commitment to ethical practices; communication of ethical practices; leadership practices to unify the organization; organizational commitment to performance management practices; organizational commitment to ethical human resource practices; and organizational commitment to the community.
To be eligible for entry in the BBB International Torch Awards for Ethics, a business must first be a winner of its local BBB awards program. Texas Vets Roofing, a woman-owned business that provides whole roof systems, is the recipient of the BBB Serving North Central Texas 2020 Torch Award for Ethics.
Last year, Texas Vets Roofing donated over 20% of its profits back into the community.
The company used its time and funds to support veterans through the Roof 4 Vets program.
The company's goal for 2021 is to provide one free roof each month to a veteran or a veteran's family in need.
