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

The B Corp certification gives you a competitive edge.

Worldwide community

As a B Corp, you're part of a global community of companies  that want to 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.
