Certified B Corporations are a new type of corporation which uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. B Corps, unlike traditional businesses, meets rigorous and independent standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. They are certified by B Lab, a nonprofit organization, the same way TransFair certifies Fair Trade coffee or USGBC certifies green buildings. Through a company’s B Impact Assessment, anyone can access performance data about the social and environmental practices that stand behind their products.
Good business is about more than a green product, it’s about the entire company. How does the company treat its employees? Do they give back to the local community? Are they minimizing their environmental impact? B Certification helps answer these questions. By making informed purchasing decisions, you can take a stand.
There are over 420 Certified B Corporations in 60 different industries across the US and Canada. The community is diverse but bound by one unifying goal: to create social and environmental change. Join the movement for a better way to do business and support B Corps.
