Becoming a B Corp certified company

B Corp certification is a voluntary process that requires businesses to commit to consideration of the impact of their decision-making on customers, employees, suppliers, community and the environment. Certification is provided by B Lab, a not-for profit organisation. As part of the process, all businesses looking to certify must achieve a minimum score of 80/200 on the B Impact Assessment (“BIA”), which assesses the day-to-day operations of the business alongside the business model.

To obtain the B Corp certification businesses need to consider the impact their decision making has on:

  • Customers
  • Employees
  • Supply chain
  • Community
  • Environment
