Redefining the role of business in society.
A historic global culture shift is underway to harness the power of business to help address society’s greatest challenges. We believe that the business community can be part of the solution to global problems like wealth inequality, climate change, and social unrest.
Our goal is therefore to accelerate this culture shift and make it meaningful and lasting, by engaging all businesses, stimulating reflexion and building collective trust.
We pursue this goal by verifying credible leaders in the business community, creating supportive infrastructure and incentives for others to follow their lead, and engaging the major institutions with the power to transform our economy.
Located in 5 continents, B Lab, a nonprofit organization, drives this systemic change by building an ecosystem to empower businesses, academics and policy makers to build a B Economy that balances purpose and profit.
The B Economy is bigger than Certified B Corporations. The B Economy is built by everyone who works for, buys from, invests in, learns or teaches about, or supports businesses striving to create a shared and durable prosperity for all.
