Certified B Corporations are a new kind of business that balances purpose and profit. They are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment. This is a community of leaders, driving a global movement of people using business as a force for good.
B Lab is proud to partner with organizations around the world to expand the community of Certified B Corporations and ensure that the B Corp Movement is relevant and inclusive in a global context. While the certification standards are governed by the Standards Advisory Council and administered through B Lab, all other aspects of our movement are executed and innovated through partners with regional expertise.
B Market Builders work in regions where the B Economy is still in its early stages, focusing primarily on creating and growing a thriving community of Certified B Corps. They support and engage existing local B Corporations and support other mission-aligned organizations to measure their social and environmental impact. B Market Builders help create the community of leaders necessary to show the local business ecosystem that it is possible to be successful while taking measurable steps towards Impact Governance and Impact Management. In this process, B Market Builders also engage and collaborate with strategic partners that can support and accelerate their work.
With support of B Lab, B Market Builders also set up the foundational pillars to grow a strong and financially sustainable organization that will support the global movement of people using business as a force for good in their local markets in the long term.
