The B Corp community 

The community sits at the heart of our movement.  B Corps are proof that embedding purpose into business is not only feasible, but good for growth and resilience. Their ongoing championing of business as a force for good is accelerating the momentum of the movement. 

With their common values rooted in the Declaration of Interdependence, B Corps are working together to reinvent the role of business in society. Achieving certification is just the beginning and every B Corp is committed to measuring, and therefore improving, their impact throughout the 3 year certification period. No B Corp is perfect, which is why we create space for B Corps to collaborate, learn from each other and make progress.

Meet your fellow B Corps

With an ever-growing community in the UK and around the world, there are B Corps you can buy from, work for, do business with and invest in.

B Corps recertify every three years 

To maintain certification, B Corps have to recertify every three years to demonstrate that they meet our rigorous standards. In the intervening years every B Corp is required to write an impact report, to update on their progress and to continue to be accountable and transparent about their impact. 

There are plenty of resources on the B Hive to help you prepare for your recertification and to provide insights for creating an impact report.  Or download our guide - How to write an impact report - for more information and inspiration.

B Locals

B Locals are community groups run by B Corps and B Leaders.

These groups are formed  when there is a concentrated number of B Corps in a city, region or nation.  With light-touch support from B Lab UK, B Locals connect like-minded businesses, create impact at a local level, and help raise awareness of the B Corp movement.
