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 four years, the NC State B Corp Clinic has helped over 50 companies from around the world improve their social and environmental impact. Whether you’re a traditional business working to become more sustainable, an aspiring B Corp pursuing certification or a certified B Corp focused on continuous improvement, the B Corp Clinic can help!

Each company is matched with a team of interdisciplinary students from academic institutions across North Carolina. The team 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 300 students on 56 projects and helped companies make progress on over 2,300 points towards certification, including 10 companies that have become B Corp Certified.
