Certified B Corporations meet the highest standards of verified social, environmental performance, transparency and accountability to balance profit and purpose. They are businesses who are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more sustainable economy. 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.
A B Corp Certification assesses the overall positive impact of the company, not just it’s product or service. Certified B Corporations achieve a minimum verified score on the B Impact Assessment, which is a rigorous assessment of a company’s impact on its workers, customers, community, and environment. This score is available to view on bcorporation.net. Certified B Corporations also amend their legal governing documents to require their board of directors to balance profit and purpose. It’s this combination of third-party validation, public transparency, and legal accountability help Certified B Corps build trust and value.
