What is a Certified B Corp?
Today, businesses are becoming more socially and environmentally responsible in order to stay competitive. B Corps set the standard for these impact-driven business models. B Corp Certification is to entire business entities what USDA Organic Certification is to discrete food/textile products or LEED Certification is to physical structures.
B Corps use the B Impact Assessment to benchmark, actualize, and improve social and environmental outcomes, and Benefit Corporation legislation to protect their missions over time and through changes in leadership.
B Corps differentiate themselves by being committed to all stakeholders, including the community, the environment, employees and consumers, and by using third party nonprofit B Lab to verify those commitments.
Over 3,023 B Corps working in 150 industries from 64 countries, including:
