B CORP

As a certified B Corp we harness 
the power of business to solve social 
and environmental problems.

WHAT ARE B CORPS?

B Corps compete not only to be the best in
the world but to be the best FOR the world.

B Lab is the non-profit organisation behind B Corp and is
fostering a global movement to redefine success in business. B Lab drives
this systemic change through a number of interrelated initiatives:

Building a community of Certified B Corporations 
to make it easier to tell the difference between “good
companies” and good marketing.

Promoting Mission Alignment using innovative corporate structures like the benefit corporation to align the interests of business with those of society and to help high impact businesses be built to last.

Helping businesses, investors, and institutions Measure What Matters, by using the B Impact Assessment and B Analytics to manage their impact—and the impact of the businesses with whom they work—with as much rigor as their profits.
