Certified B Corp

Change Your Mind For Good. Change Your Business For Good.

B Corp Declaration of Interdependence

We envision a new sector of the economy which harnesses the power of private enterprise to create public benefit. This sector is comprised of a new type of corporation – the B Corporation™ – which is purpose-driven and creates benefit for all stakeholders, not just shareholders.

As members of this emerging sector and as entrepreneurs and investors in B Corporations™

We hold these truths to be self-evident:

  • That we must be the change we seek in the world;
  • That all business ought to be conducted as if people and place mattered;
  • That, through their products, practices, and profits, businesses should aspire to do no harm and benefit all.
  • To do so, requires that we act with the understanding that we are each dependent upon another and thus responsible for each other and future generations.

B Corps create exponentially positive impact when they use their Business as a Force for Good
