B Corp Movement

Transforming the global economy to benefit all people, communities, and the planet

Road work - Our standards are evolving!​

B Lab is in the midst of the biggest change to the B Corp standards. Whilst regular revisions have been made to the B Corp standards since B Lab’s launch in 2006, the time has come for B Lab to evolve the standards, not just revise them. As the climate crisis intensifies, societal inequality grows, and the sustainability landscape evolves, it’s important to meaningfully demonstrate the leadership role B Corps and the movement play in the world. The new standards will provide clarity for companies, galvanizing the most impactful business actions and focusing on what really matters.
