What is a B Corp?
B Corporations are certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. In addition, 38 states have officially passed Benefit Corporation legislation (including California) to legally recognize Benefit Corporations, perhaps surpassing the tipping point needed to scale “business as a force for good.” Jay Coen Gilbert, co-founder of B Lab, sums it up well: “Employees, consumers, investors, and policy makers increasingly want to support companies that create a positive impact in the world.”
Why we are proud to be a B Corp
We believe that business has a higher social purpose, beyond simply generating profit, so becoming a certified B Corp was a no-brainer for us. It became an exciting, new way for us to communicate our triple bottom line values to the world. And the hard work has paid off… we’ve received “Best for the World” honors for six consecutive years by scoring in the top 10% of B Corps worldwide based on our B Impact Assessment score! See our profile, impact scores, and the Best for the World honors we’ve been awarded.
