Benefit Corporations (B Corps)

Certified B Corporations are a new type of corporation which uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.

B Lab, a nonprofit organization, certifies B Corporations, the same way TransFair certifies Fair Trade coffee or USGBC certifies LEED buildings.

B Corps, unlike traditional businesses:

1.Meet comprehensive and transparent social and environmental performance standards;

2.Meet higher legal accountability standards;

3.Build business constituency for public policies that support sustainable business.
