What is a Certified B Corporation?

Certified B Corps are for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. A company has to meet a minimum performance benchmark aggregated across all categories to become certified.

Why do B Corps matter?

Certified B Corporations are leading a global movement to redefine success in business. They voluntarily meet higher standards of transparency, accountability, and performance. Certified B Corps are distinguishing themselves in a cluttered marketplace by offering a positive vision of a better way to do business.

Why did we become a B Corp?

We deliver practical solutions to help make each business owner, leader or executive a better leader. That, in turn, helps build our community, our country, and a better global community. Our vision and this big picture view is perfectly aligned with B Corp goals. The B Corp Impact Assessment provides us a framework for accountability and helps keep us focused on what matters—which is exactly what we help do for our clients.
