What is a Certified B Corporation®?

Certified B Corps are leaders of a global movement of people using business as a force for good™. They meet the highest standards of overall social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability and aspire to use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. Audited every 2 years by B-Lab, an independent Non for profit, these companies exchange their best practices in an active purpose-driven network.
