About the Torch Awards for Ethics

The Torch Award is the most prestigious BBB award presented to exceptional organizations for their dedication to integrity and ethical business practices. Each year, Better Business Bureau holds open nominations and applications for our Torch Awards program throughout the Northwest & Pacific. We allow the public to acknowledge businesses that embody high standards of trust, performance, and integrity. The award embodies the Better Business Bureau mission of advancing trust in the marketplace.

BBB Torch Awards are open to all businesses and 501(c)(3) public charities within our service areas. BBB Accreditation is not required, however, to be considered, businesses must meet all BBB Standards for Accreditation.

Application Deadline

The deadline to complete the Torch Awards application form is Monday, August 24, 2020. For questions, please email TorchAwards@thebbb.org. Please review the category eligibility and the terms and conditions to ensure your business meets all requirements.
