Certified B Corps are part of a movement to create a world in which there is a shared and durable prosperity for all.
Not just for some, but for all.
In order to do that, businesses need to rethink the way that they operate. Yes, make a profit – after all, this a certification for businesses not nonprofits – but make those profits in a way that is socially and environmentally responsible.
B Corps do this by implementing policies and practices such as including social and environmental considerations into the company’s mission, ensuring that workers are fairly compensated, supporting and giving back to the local community, promoting diversity within the supply chain, and otherwise aligning the company’s values with its practices.
However, the certification process, including the online assessment tool that needs to be completed, can be daunting and overwhelming. Many small businesses want to get certified, but find that the process can be confusing. You may not even understand some of the questions or how they apply to your business. And certainly, your time is valuable and you have a business to run, which can limit the amount of time you have to work on this.
The clients I work with are mission-driven individuals who want to join the B Corp community but need some help getting certified. I guide and support them through the process, provide resources, and help them to get certified more quickly and efficiently.
