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.

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.
Submit your assessment
Once you've completed the assessment with over 80 points, follow the final steps to submit. Our Standards Review Team will get in touch when it's time to evaluate your application. Please note there is a queue, so this may take some time.
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 the size and complexity of your organisation.
Certify as a B Corp
Once your score of 80+ is verified, you will be invited to sign the Declaration of Interdependence and B Corp Agreement, pay your annual certification fee, and publish your profile on the B Corp directory.
Celebrate & share
We'll give you the tools you need to announce your certification to your team, clients, customers, suppliers, and everyone else!
Be loud and proud in sharing your certification.
Using the B Impact Assessment is free. A one-off submission fee of $250 is payable if you submit your company to us for certification. As a Certified B Corporation, certification fees are then paid annually, and calculated based on your organisation's total revenue for the preceding 12 months.
