More About Us

The truth is, we’re very fond of the people we work with and the people that hire us to work with them. The company was started by a group of friends in 2002 in search of a way to make a difference in the world while surrounding ourselves with folks that felt more like family than colleagues or customers. We have always been attracted to passionate people that are willing to put their money where their mouths are.

SED achieved status as a Certified B Corp in 2015. The B Corp philosophy, to use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems, aligns perfectly with the company’s vision. We are proud to be a part of a growing community of more than 1,000 companies across 60 industries with one unifying goal: redefining success in business. B Corp certification shows that SED is committed to meeting rigorous standards of performance, accountability, and transparency. Further, this certification shows that SED is using the power of business to help alleviate poverty, address climate change, build strong local communities and a great place to work.
