What Is A B Corporation?

Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corps are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.

Society’s most challenging problems cannot be solved by government and nonprofits alone. The B Corp community works toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of more high quality jobs with dignity and purpose. By harnessing the power of business, B Corps use profits and growth as a means to a greater end: positive impact for their employees, communities, and the environment.

Benefits Of Being A B Corporation

Every company has their own reason to certify as a B Corporation. B Corps want to be part of something bigger than themselves, but for many, becoming a B Corp also has to make business sense.

Connect online, meet in person at events, or build client and vendor relationships within a powerful community of practice.

Set the gold standard for good business and inspire race to the top.
