WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A B CORP COMPANY?

The title of ‘B Corp certification’ is a coveted one. And it’s not easy to achieve with the stringent criteria that companies are assessed against. The process is run by B Lab, a non-profit organisation, using the rigorous ‘B Impact Assessment’ companies should aim to meet a threshold score of 80 points or more out of a possible 200 to be granted B Corp certification. Most companies reach a score between 40 and 100 with the average score being 80. The process considers the impact the business has on its staff, customers, suppliers, community and the environment. 

B Corporations use people as a force for good, meeting the highest standards of social and environmental performance. They are accountable for their business decisions and transparency in their actions. It is hugely aspirational to become a B Corp certified business. Inspiring change and innovation to make the world a better place is fast becoming the main reason for product and service development.
