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.

Stories about B Corp

To Be or Not to B Corp

Why companies are becoming B Corps

Beyond the bottom line: the B Corp Boom

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.


"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.”

Rose Marcario



Certification Process

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.


Get prepared

Find out where to start, get your company on board and meet with a B Corp to learn.


Verify & improve

Our Standards Review Team will work with you, requesting documents to verify your answers. This step typically takes from 2 to 6 months, depending on size and complexity and how many improvements you need to make to get 80+ points.


B Impact Assessment

Use the B Impact Assessment to measure your social and environmental performance and get recommendations on ways to improve your impact.



With a verified score of 80+ you will be invited to sign the Declaration of Interdependence, download & sign the B Corp Agreement pay certification fees, and publish profile on the B Corp directory.


Get support, improve

Most businesses make changes to become certified. If you need support preparing your application we offer 1-on-1 consults, 1/2 day Bootcamps and tailored advice. See how we can help below.


Celebrate & share

Announce your certification to your friends, family, partners, clients, customers, suppliers and everyone else!


Be loud and proud in sharing your certification.



When you have 80+ points, submit your assessment so our Standards Review Team can evaluate your application.

We drive institutional, behavioural, and policy change by empowering business and its stakeholders as the agents of change. Collaborations are driven by funding from corporate and philanthropic foundations and individuals.

  • Corporate volunteers
