The non-profit certifies businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability, and aspire to use the power of markets to solve social and environmental problems.

Companies with the B Corp title are differentiating themselves from competitor and attracting investors, consumers, and press.  B Lab has grown a global community of over 1800 businesses acting as a force for good.
