Resources for B Corps

If your company is looking to become a Certified B Corporation we can help!

B Corporations are companies that use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. B Lab is the nonprofit organization behind the certified B Corporation movement. B Lab drives systemic change through three interrelated initiatives: 1) building a community of Certified B Corporations to make it easier for all of us to tell the difference between ‘good companies’ and just good marketing; 2) accelerating the growth of impact investing through use of B Lab’s GIIRS Ratings and Analytics platform; and 3) promoting legislation creating a new corporate form -- the benefit corporation -- that meets higher standards of corporate purpose, accountability, and transparency.

How does certification work?

Getting B Corporation certified can seem a bit daunting but rest assured there is plenty of great information available and Carbon Analytics is committed to helping as many companies seek and obtain certification as possible.
