The B Corp movement envisions a global economy that uses business as a force for good. Businesses should not only generate returns, but also to create value for its customers, employees, community, and the environment. Through its rigorous assessments, there are now over 3,300 certified B Corporations across 150 industries in 71 countries.
In this episode we explore the pragmatic way to assess if businesses are built as ‘good’. It’s clear that becoming a B Corp is no award show or marketing exercise as you need to continually improve to maintain your status. Join us as we discuss our scores from their assessment, how it has helped many businesses grow sustainably, and its implications for going mainstream.
