Certified B Corporations are a new kind of business that balance purpose and profit.
B Corporations, or B Corps, make decisions that make a positive impact across their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment.
Globally, B Corps are leading the way in using business as a force for good.

Stories about B Corp
Why become a Certified B Corp?
We envisage a world where businesses compete to be best for the world, the people living in it, and the natural environment on which our quality of life depends. Join the community of B Corps to help realise this goal.
Your business can benefit from certification in a number of direct ways.
SERVE COMMUNITY & PLANET
"The B Corp movement is one of the most important of our lifetime, built on the simple fact that business impacts and serves more than just shareholders -- it has an equal responsibility to the community and to the planet.”
B Corps need a minimum of 80 out of 200 points to get certified. In Australia & New Zealand businesses need to be operational for 12-months before being B Corp certified.
