The Essentials: Criteria for B Corp Certification

A Holistic Approach to Impact

To qualify for B Corp Certification, companies are assessed across five impact areas: Governance, Workers, Community, Environment, and Customers. Each area contains specific performance requirements that collectively measure your company’s positive impact. Our approach is to guide you through these criteria with clarity and empathy, ensuring you understand each element’s significance.

  1. Governance: Transparent and accountable governance structures are fundamental. We’ll assist you in implementing best practices to enhance your company’s overall governance.
  2. Workers: Your employees are your greatest asset. We’ll explore ways to prioritise their well-being, from fair compensation to fostering an inclusive and supportive workplace culture.
  3. Community: A key criterion is engaging with and positively impacting your local and global communities. We’ll help you identify meaningful ways to contribute and create lasting social value.
  4. Environment: Sustainability is a non-negotiable aspect of B Corp Certification. We will work with you to develop and implement environmentally friendly practices tailored to your industry.
  5. Customers: Building strong customer relationships involves more than delivering a product or service. We will guide you in creating positive customer experiences that align with B Corp values.
