Guide to becoming a B Corp

5. How to navigate the BIA

To answer most questions you'll need documents, policies, metrics and more.

Important information you'll want to have on hand.

  • A payroll register and employee roster

  • Latest Profit & Loss Statement

  • Anything you formally 'track' e.g. energy use, employee attrition,  waste production

  • Understand the legal requirement

  • A list of your "significant suppliers”. This includes your top 80% of suppliers / vendors by dollar volume

  • A break down of revenue from your various products and services

  • Any sustainability / corporate social responsibility goals. This includes reports and progress tracking

  • An employee handbook


How to approach completing

the assessment

 1. Take a first pass at the assessment and bookmark questions to go back to later.

2. Gather company info you didn’t have the first time, go through a second time and answer questions based on the evidence you have.

3. Improve your score and implement new practices if you're below 80 points. Most companies come in at 50 points so you will likely not hit 80 from the start.  

How to answer questions in the BIA




Answer N/A, don’t know or none of the above.


Do not answer based on plans that your company has in the future.  




Once you submit your assessment, you will be asked to provide written evidence to get points.
