What are Certified B Corps?
Certified B Corporations (B Corps) are a global network of individuals that all use business as a force for good in the world. B Corps are required to meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. Today, there are more than 2,775 B Corps, which span across 60 different countries, and 150 different industries.
Why should my business consider becoming a Certified B Corp?
B Corp Certification is the only certification that measures a company’s entire social and environmental performance. The B Impact Assessment evaluates how your company’s operations and business model impact your workers, community, environment, and customers. The B Corp Certification also offers businesses market differentiation from their competitors. People want to work for and buy from businesses that openly share similar values. Becoming a B Corp is the most powerful way to build credibility among employees and customers.
