The B Corp community was founded in 2006 in the United States, bringing together companies from around the world wishing to (re)affirm their commitment to effecting positive impact in alignment with their purpose. These for-profit companies demonstrate their will to make progress and have a positive impact by being evaluated on their overall performance every 3 years. Certified companies to date come in all sizes and from all sectors, from historical icons such as Patagonia, Natura, Alessi or Ecover, to “start-ups” such as Fairphone, Triodos, change.org, or Kickstarter…
Through their business model, they seek not to be the best IN the world, but the best FOR the world! Beyond their commitment to progress, they develop the principle of interdependence: projects between B Corps are favoured and B Corps seek to pollinate their entire ecosystem of suppliers, customers or partners.
