    Comments Off on LEVA-EU member Cowboy is the first e-bike retail brand to achieve B Corp certification

    The brand joins a global community of responsible companies that meet the highest social and environmental standards. It’s been years in the making and is just the beginning as Cowboy strives to be better in all they do and lead the way toward a more sustainable future.

    B Corp certification is administered by the nonprofit, B Lab. Its in-depth review of Cowboy’s operations, business model, and product are evaluated across five primary attributes (community, customers, environment, governance, workers) to meet a rigorous standard for benefit corporation certification.

    Cowboy continues to advance sustainability globally while owning its supply chain and logistics – from the sourcing of each part, to delivering a bike to your door, to recycling used batteries and bike parts.

    This recognition is just the beginning for Cowboy. The brand is committed to building more social and environmental practices into how it operates, how they behave as a brand, and how Cowboy performs as a product and service to its rider community of over 40,000 strong and growing.

    Sita Chantramonklasri from Siam Capital said: “While global efforts in combating climate change have led to increasing support for the decarbonization of urban mobility, the need for more sustainable modes of transportation has never been more apparent, especially among this era of conscious consumers. By marrying best-in-class hardware, software and subscription services to deliver an elevated experience, Cowboy is uniquely positioned to emerge as a leader in making electric bikes not only accessible but also aspirational. We could not be more thrilled to partner with them as they continue to bring their mission to market,”

    “I’m thrilled to welcome Siam Capital onboard along with the renewed support of our investors to accelerate our company growth and product innovation,” shared Adrien Roose, Cowboy Co-Founder & CEO. “With this new capital, we’re bringing our industrial design and technological development in house. This will give us a further competitive edge as the most sought-after electric bike brand.”

    LEVA-EU member and well-established Belgian ebike brand Cowboy has announced its entrance into the US market at the Micromobility Conference in San Francisco, beginning with the new Cowboy 4.
