Our innovative B Corp Clinic is the first of its kind. Team up with students to work toward strengthening your social and environmental impact.

The B Corp Clinic

For the last three years, the NC State B Corp Clinic has helped North Carolina companies improve their social and environmental impact, whether you’re an aspiring B Corp interested in strengthening your impact business model or a certified B Corp focused on continuous improvement.

Companies are matched with a team of interdisciplinary students that uses the B Impact Assessment (BIA), as a tool to measure and drive impact. The BIA is a free, confidential platform designed to help measure and manage your company’s positive impact on your workers, community, customers and environment.

A program of the NC State Poole College Business Sustainability Collaborative, the B Corp Clinic has worked with 212 students on 36 projects and helped companies make progress on over 1300 points towards certification, including 6 companies that have become B Corp Certified.
