Find out more about the programmes and tools available to help you understand your environmental and social impact. These can be used by every business — whether or not they are B Corps.
The B Impact Assessment
What is it? The free B Impact Assessment enables companies to measure, manage, and improve their impact by answering a series of questions about business practices and outputs.
Who is it for? Any for-profit company — in fact, the B Impact Assessment is already used by more than 200,000 businesses. You don’t have to be a B Corp to use this free and confidential tool, nor do you have to be a C-suite executive or seasoned sustainability professional.

SDG Action Manager
What is it? Developed by B Lab and the United Nations Global Compact, the SDG Action Manager is a free self-assessment that helps all businesses understand their contribution toward facilitating the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and plan for improvements.
Who is it for? Every business, big or small, with an ambition to understand and manage their performance on the SDGs. You do not have to be a B Corporation.
