The Non-Profit Behind B Corps

The Non-Profit Behind B Corps

The Road to a New Economy

B Lab is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that serves a global movement of entrepreneurs using the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. B Lab serves these entrepreneurs through three interrelated initiatives that provide them the legal infrastructure and help them attract the customers, talent, and capital to scale.

Certified B Corporations

B Corp certification is to sustainable business what LEED certification is to green building or Fair Trade certification is to coffee.

B Corps are certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.

Today, there is a growing community of over 1,000 Certified B Corps from more than 30 countries and 60 industries working together toward 1 unifying goal: to redefine success in business.

Passing Legislation

In the United States, through the leadership of the B Corp Community, laws have been passed in 26 states, plus DC, creating a new type of corporation—the benefit corporation—that best meets the needs of entrepreneurs and investors seeking to use business as a force for good.

Benefit corporations operate the same as traditional corporations but with higher standards of corporate purpose, accountability, and transparency.

Benefit corporations give leaders legal protection to pursue a higher purpose than profit, and offer the public greater transparency to protect against pretenders.
