Care2 is proud to be a Certified B Corporation, joining over 225 leading companies that are changing what it means to be a successful business.
B Corporations are a new kind of company which uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.
Unlike traditional businesses, B Corporations meet high accountability and performance standards. Collectively, the B Corp community helps address two systemic business issues:
The values advanced by B Lab and B Corporations are ones that are important to us and also to our stakeholders. By becoming a B Corporation, we are better able to broadcast our commitment to those values and hopefully set an example of social and environmental responsibility in our community.
Two things: 1) achieve a passing score on the B Ratings System, a comprehensive tool to assess a company’s social and environmental performance; and 2) agree to legally expand its corporate responsibilities to include consideration of the interests of its employees, suppliers, consumers, community, and environment.
By becoming a B Corporation, Care2
As of November 2009, there are over 225 B Corporations in over 30 industries, representing over a $1 billion marketplace. Over the next few years, these numbers will grow to hundreds of B Corporations and a multi-billion dollar marketplace, all building collective voice for “good companies.”
B Lab, a nonprofit organization, certifies, supports, and promotes B Corporations. B Lab’s independent Standards Advisory Council sets the legal and performance standards for B Corporation certification, and oversees the evolution of those standards and the auditing of B Corporations. The standards, as well as the members of the SAC, are all transparent on www.bcorporation.net.
