Be the change.
This idea is championed by B Corporation, a community of companies that use the power of their business towards the goals of social and environmental improvement. The more than 700 companies, known as the B Corps, have passed rigorous criteria by the nonprofit B Corporation to become a Certified B Corp that meets high standards of transparency, accountability, and social and environmental impact.
Over 600 businesses have already joined our community, encouraging all companies to compete not just to be the best in the world, but to be the best for the world. As a result of our collective success, individuals and communities will enjoy greater economic opportunity, society will address its most challenging environmental problems, and more people will find fulfillment by bringing their whole selves to work. – B Corporation
Most (if not all!) companies have a bottom line: profit.
B Corp companies are different. They have a triple bottom line: people, planet, profit.
This triple bottom line sets B Corp companies apart from other companies. Together, the alliance of B Corp companies have worked to pass legislation to raise the bar in companies’ social obligations in 12 states. The alliance also itself accountable to reduce its environmental footprint, and donate efforts and money to charitable foundations.
B Corp companies advocate corporate responsibility, green and sustainable practices, an inclusive environment, and responsible employees. Good companies with good values!
