We're a leader in the B Corporation community, a global movement that seeks to use business as a force for good.
Leaders in the Drive for Change
B Corporations are for-profit businesses that show a demonstrated commitment to social and environmental sustainability. B Lab is the nonprofit organization the pioneered B Corp certification and creates the standards, policies, tools and programs that help mobilize the B Corp community. With a network of more than 6,000 corporations worldwide, the B Corp certification helps consumers identify companies that share their values and benefit their communities.
At the Business Sustainability Collaborative, we’re proud to be leaders in the B Corporation movement. Our flagship program, the B Corp Clinic, is the biggest initiative of its kind. And it’s been adopted by universities across the globe. During a semester-long session, we pair students with aspiring B Corporations — including leading companies like Red Hat and HQ Raleigh — to help them earn their B Corp certifications.
