What’s Behind The B?
Certified B Corporations are a better kind of business
What’s a B Corp’s purpose? (Hint: it’s more than profit.)
B Corps are mission-driven companies that balance purpose and profit
Our most challenging problems can’t be solved by governments and nonprofits alone. For profit businesses play a critical role in shaping our future. B Corps are for profit companies that meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.
B Corps use the power of business to do more than seek profit. They use their profits and growth to positively impact their stakeholders — and the planet.
How Does a Company Become a B Corp?
It takes more than a fee and a logo to become a B Corp. B Corps are the best of the best, and they take the test to prove it.
So, What’s the Test?
Measure What Matters With The B Impact Assessment
The B Impact Assessment is the most credible tool a company can use to measure its impact on its workers, community, environment, customers, and company structure. By measuring what matters, companies that use the assessment have the data they need to understand where they need to improve; and what steps they need to take to get there.
Together, B Corps Make a Big Difference.
