What is a BCorp?
B Lab is a nonprofit organization that serves a global movement of people using business as a force for good. Its vision is that one day all companies compete not only to be the best in the world but the best for the world.
Chanelle Sladics, Simply Straws Founder, shares why we're a B Corp and how we're using our business as a force for good.
B Corp is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk.
B Lab drives this systemic change by:
Building a community of Certified B Corporations to make it easier for all of us to tell the difference between “good companies” and good marketing;
Passing benefit corporation legislation to give business leaders the freedom to create value for society as well as shareholders;
Helping businesses measure, compare and improve their social and environmental performance with the free B Impact Assessment;
Driving capital to impact investments through the use of its B Analytics and GIIRS Ratings platform.
