About B Lab

B Lab is a nonprofit that serves a global movement of people using business as a force for good. B Lab’s initiatives include B Corp Certification, administration of the B Impact Management programs and software, and advocacy for governance structures like the benefit corporation.

B Lab UK is a UK registered charity, which exists to support a community of UK-based B Corps. We support them to join and contribute to this global movement, linking UK Certified B Corps together with B Corps around the world to use the power of business together to address social and environmental problems. There’s an eclectic and energetic group of people behind the B Corp movement in the UK. Together we’re dedicated to making a difference in the British business environment.

I often wonder to what extent business can help society in its goals to alleviate poverty, preserve ecosystems, and build strong communities and institutions…B Lab has proven that there is a way."

Reinventing Business

A historic global culture shift is underway to harness the power of business to help address society’s greatest challenges. B Lab’s goal is to accelerate this culture shift and make it meaningful and lasting. Our vision is that one day all companies will compete to be not just best in the world but also best for the world, and as a result society will enjoy a more shared and durable prosperity.

The business community can be part of the solution to global problems like wealth inequality, climate change, and social unrest. Through our network of global partner organisations and interrelated initiatives, B Lab works to create viable alternatives to an economic system that is failing to create these solutions.

B Lab pursues this goal by verifying credible leaders in the business community, creating supportive infrastructure and incentives for others to follow their lead, and engaging the major institutions with the power to transform our economy.
