B Corp Clinic

The B Corp Clinic connects students to aspiring B Corporations to help them improve their environmental and social impact as part of the B Impact Teams initiative.

Celebrating 5 Years of Impact!

We’ve come a long way since our first B Corp Clinic in 2015 – check it out below!

From 2015 to 2020 we’ve engaged over 300 students from 7 different universities. We’ve grad graduate and undergraduate students from across the state lead 68 clinic projects with local and global companies. As a result of the clinic, over 2,300 points towards B Corp Certification have been awarded and 10 companies have become certified B Corporations! See more below about how we’ve continue that impact, recently wrapping up our 15th semester and 99th project!

Get Involved

Have you ever wondered how companies become B Corps? B Corps—like Warby Parker, New Belgium Brewing, and Patagonia—are “for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.” For the last seven years, the NC State B Corp Clinic, a multi-school collaborative program has helped North Carolina companies strengthen their social and environmental impact by working with teams of graduate students from across NC State.

300 students

Over the last 7 years, the B Corp Clinic has engaged over 400 students from 7 colleges with 99 projects.

Companies are matched with a team of students (intentionally designed to include students from multiple schools and disciplines) to go through the assessment process and identify strategies they can take to improve their B Corp scores. Students gain hands-on consulting experience and the chance to learn about social and environmental impact assessment and sustainable business models. Over the last seven years, the NC State B Corp Clinic has worked on 99 projects with North Carolina companies, to help them make progress towards B Corp certification, working with over 400 graduate and undergraduate students from universities across the state.
