Champs Retreat 2020

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.

B Corps in Australia & New Zealand

Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose.

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.”
