B Corp community demonstrates positive impact, activates B Corp Month theme of “Go Beyond” at Natural Products Expo West

Expo West, Anaheim, CA, March 7, 2023 — Today, B Lab U.S. & Canada (booth #3025) furthers its commitment to transforming the economic system alongside more than 100 B Corps exhibiting at Natural Products Expo West – the largest group of B Corps ever to attend the conference. Certified B Corporations, or B Corps, are businesses that meet high standards of positive social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. The B Corps in attendance will showcase innovative products and business models that positively impact workers, communities, customers, and the environment.

“B Corps embody how businesses can be a force for good. Their progress in advancing climate justice, racial equity, and a stakeholder-driven economy is something the natural products industry can be proud of. We’re excited to be part of the largest convening of B Corps in the history of Expo West,” said Jodi Beasley, Senior Director of Community at B Lab U.S. & Canada. 

Expo West coincides with the start of B Corp Month 2023, B Lab’s annual campaign celebrating B Corps around the world. This year’s theme, “We Go Beyond” (#WeGoBeyond), presents the global community of B Corps who “go beyond” the status quo and take action to transform the economic system.

The campaign will be activated through interactive displays at the B Corporation booth, as well as by the community of more than 6,000 Certified B Corps around the world, representing 88 countries, 159 industries, and more than 500,000 workers. 

B Corps will play a leading role in programming throughout Expo West. View a full list of the more than 100 B Corps exhibiting at Expo West.
