What Is a B Corp?

Certified B Corporations are leaders in the global movement for an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economy. Unlike other certifications for businesses, B Lab is unique in its ability to measure a business’s entire social and environmental impact.B Lab

This is a new type of corporation that is purpose-driven. B Corps strive to go beyond profit, making business purposeful. They build trust with consumers, communities, and suppliers. They commit to being accountable to all stakeholders, not just shareholders. This is a holistic approach where standards continue to be met over time.

The B System brings about change by harnessing the market’s power to positively impact people and the environment. B LabTM mobilizes the B Corp network towards collective action to address global challenges. They lead the transformation of the global economic system with social and environmental impact standards measured by the B Impact AssessmentTM.

The B Impact Assessment

B Lab measures a business’s accountability by examining how it upholds stewardship. The B Impact Assessment evaluates how verified performance meets rigorous high standards regarding governance, responsibility, and transparency. Factors range from employee benefits and charitable giving to supply chain practices and input materials.

An Impact Business Model is purposefully structured to generate a particular positive effect for a stakeholder group. This model reduces poverty through ethical supply chain practices, such as fair trade procurement, distribution through small businesses and cooperatives, local economic development initiatives, and formal pledges to charity.

The impact of B Corps is threefold: social, environmental, and economic. Take a look at ours:
