We’re excited to celebrate B Corp Month, an annual celebration that recognizes certified B Corporations.
This year’s B Corp theme is #WeGoBeyond, which highlights how the B Corp community “goes beyond” the status quo to advocate and take action to create real systemic change.
As a certified B Corporation from the very beginning, we’re proud to celebrate being a part of this global movement. This year, we plan to continue to spread the word on how businesses can be a force for good and encourage you to reflect on how they (and you, too) can go beyond.
Wondering what a B Corporation is? B stands for benefit, and it means that, unlike the traditional corporate structure, these companies consider benefits to people and the planet, as well as profit. Companies that are verified by B Lab (the non-profit working group behind B Corps) meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. They use the power of business to help solve social and environmental problems.
Becoming a certified B Corporation is a difficult accomplishment. To be certified as a B Corp, a brand must meet high standards. The certification process itself is rigorous: one in every three companies typically make the cut, and a reassessment is required every three years.
