Our Governance

B Lab Australia & Aotearoa New Zealand

B Lab Australia & Aotearoa New Zealand (AANZ) started in 2013 to build local momentum for a fledgling movement born in the United States: business as a force for good. Since then, the B Corp movement has grown to more than 4,000 businesses in over 70 countries, with nearly 350 B Corps in our region alone.

As the B Corp movement has evolved globally, so has B Lab. Our team in Australia & Aotearoa New Zealand has doubled throughout the pandemic, and we have reached a point where our organisation and movement need greater input and stewardship from B Corps.

With a continuously growing community, personal connections are no longer enough; we need a formal space for B Corp voices. That is why we are introducing a new governance model, which you can learn more about below.

We have reached the point where our growth, our movement, needs more input and stewardship from B Corps but our community has grown to a point that can’t be done through personal connections alone.
