B Corp – Defining Business

As promised in my previous post, here is a little more information about B Corp.

Certified B Corporations are a new type of corporation which uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.

B Lab, a nonprofit organization, certifies B Corporations, the same way TransFair certifies Fair Trade coffee or USGBC certifies LEED buildings.

B Corps, unlike traditional businesses:

Meet comprehensive and transparent social and environmental performance standards;

Meet higher legal accountability standards;

Build business constituency for public policies that support sustainable business.

There are over 500 Certified B Corporations across 60 different industries. From food and apparel for you and your family to attorneys and office supplies for your business, B Corporations are a diverse community with one unifying goal: to redefine success in business.

Through a company’s public B Impact Report, anyone can access performance data about the social and environmental practices that stand behind their products.

Fairwear until next time…
