Benefit Corporations form a worldwide network of certified businesses that balance purpose and profit. They are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community and environment. Over the globe there are more than 2000 B Corps in 50 countries and 130 industries that all have one goal: to use business as a force for good.
Companies become B Corps as they will attract easier investors, new talent and built trust. Through the B Corp certification companies are better enabled to preserve their mission, innovate faster and demonstrably show their impact.
A B Corp certificate helps to think objectively to think about creating value for each stakeholder. Well-known B Corps are Ben & Jerry’s, Patagonia and Tony’s Chocolonely. Outside Inc. aims to leverage the community of B Corps. To this end, we’ve organized the B Corp event in collaboration with Ben & Jerry’s and NewForeSight.
