B Corporations – Certified for Sustainability

March 24, 2012 at 11:44 pm Leave a comment

 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:

  1. Meet comprehensive and transparent social and environmental performance standards;
  2. Meet higher legal accountability standards;
  3. Build business constituency for public policies that support sustainable business.

There are over 450 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.
