What is B Certification?
A certified B Corporation is one that has been certified by B Labs (a non-profit company) that measures a company’s social and environmental performance against the standards in their online B Impact Assessment.
B Corp Certification doesn’t just evaluate a product or service, it assesses the overall positive impact of the company that stands behind it.
These companies are expected to balance purpose with profit. Certification reviews areas from the supply chain and input materials to charitable giving and employee benefits.
