Certified B CorporationCertified B Corporations are leading a global movement to redefine success in business. By voluntarily meeting higher standards of transparency, accountability, and performance, Certified B Corps are distinguishing themselves in a cluttered marketplace by offering a positive vision of a better way to do business. Certified B Corps are competing to be not just ‘The Best in the World’, but ‘The Best for the World’.

The “B” stands for “Benefit” Corporation and denotes that a business has committed itself to a defined set of non-traditional business practices that benefit employees, customers, and the broader community by creating a positive impact on society and the environment. B Corps differ from traditional corporations in purpose, accountability, and transparency, but not in taxation.

In a traditional corporation, shareholders judge the company’s financial performance; with a B Corp, shareholders judge performance based on how a corporation’s goals benefit society and the environment. Transparency provisions require benefit corporations to publish annual benefit reports of their social and environmental performance using a comprehensive, credible, independent and transparent third-party standard. B Labs is the non-profit organization that awards B Corp certification to companies that complete a rigorous application process. To date, there are 1,300 B Corps in 120 industries across the globe with the common goal of redefining business success.
