Becoming a B Corp
Transform your company - the B Corp Way.
B Corps are companies that use the power of business to create e more inclusive and sustainable economy. Worldwide, there are over 4.400 B Corps, and counting. We think every company should ask itself the following question: to B or not to B?
Why become a B Corp
Doing good is great for business
The B Corp certification gives you a competitive edge.
As a B Corp, you're part of a global community of companies that want to use business as a force for good.
Make a positive impact for all your stakeholders.
In good company
There are more than 4.400 B Corps in the world. Well-known B Corps are Ben & Jerry's, Patagonia, and Coursera. There are lots of Dutch B Corps, such as Fair Phone, Tony's Chocolonely, Dopper, Auping, Triodos Bank, and We Transfer. Together they form a community of companies that use business as a force for good.
Sustainability in the broadest sense
The B Corp certification is known to be a tough process. Companies must meet the highest verified standards for social and environmental performance. Performance is measured across five areas: governance, workers, customers, community, and environment. It's about sustainability in the broadest sense, and goes well beyond reducing carbon emission. This holistic approach aligns well with our own philosophy.
