B Corporation Clinic
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 three years, the NC State B Corp Clinic has helped North Carolina companies achieve B Corp certification by working with teams of graduate and undergraduate students from universities across the state.
Companies are matched with a team of interdisciplinary students to go through the assessment process and identify strategies 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.
A program of the NC State Poole College Business Sustainability Collaborative, the B Corp Clinic has worked with 183 students on 29 projects and helped companies make progress on over 1300 points towards certification, including 6 companies that have become B Corp Certified.
