Make a Positive Change for Your Community

Become a B Corp and change the way the world sees your business.

There is a shift happening in the business community. Companies are using business as a tool for social change and building communities that are healthy, equitable and regenerative. 

Business leaders and investors are embracing the wisdom of the triple bottom line. As of 2019, almost 10,000 companies around the world have signed the UN Global Compact — a promise to uphold social responsibility in human rights, labor standards, and environmental protection.

Consumers are turning to the business sector and holding for-profit companies accountable for their actions and impact. Consumers are becoming smarter about sustainability claims and look for actual value in a company instead of being fooled by marketing.

This trend is being reflected in several recent movements and certifications: B Corp, Conscious Capitalism, Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), Just Labels and BALLE.

What is a B Corporation?

A Certification for for-profit businesses

B Corporation certification is to for-profit businesses what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk.

A Certification, not an Entity Type

Many confuse B Corp with Benefit Corporation. Both work towards a joint mission. However, certified B Corporation is a globally recognized certification, and Benefit Corporation is a legal entity type.

A Common Mission

B Corps balance purpose and profit to not just be the best in the world, but the best FOR the world.

Business as a Force for Good

B Corps are required to consider the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment.

Third-Party Accountability

B Corps are companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.

No Greenwashing Here

Consumers are becoming smarter about sustainability claims and greenwashing. They look for true value in a company and are not fooled by marketing.
