Certified B-Corporation

Certified B-Corporation

B Corporation certification (also called “B Corp Certification”) is a private, third-party standard for companies that meet certain social and environmental performance standards as well as principles of transparency and accountability. It is given to for-profit businesses by B Lab, an international non-profit group. For a company to get the certification, it must take an online test and get at least 80 out of 200 points.

Then, to get certified, it must go through a process of assessment and review and show proof. The assessment looks at the whole way a company works and measures its positive effects on governance, workers, the community, the environment, and other areas (like energy efficiency, employee benefits, corporate transparency, etc.) as well as on the product or service it sells. Companies that want to get certified also have to write their stakeholder commitments into their governing documents.

Branding is the main benefit of being a B Corp. In an age of “green-washing,” the B Corp certification is like a label that helps customers find companies that are more trustworthy because they have met standards that have been checked by a third party. People often mix up Certified B Corps with benefit corporations, which are a legal form for companies with a mission.

This is my 15th year of growing my MOustache (aka “MO) with MOvember. I grow my MO to honor my father-in-law, who passed away from prostate cancer + to raise awareness and funds + to literally and figuratively change the face of men’s health. Movember is a fun approach to serious issues (testicular cancer for younger men + prostate cancer for older men + mental health for all of us), so I hope when you see our MOs that you will check yourself + remember to schedule your annual physicals + reach out if you need a friend.   #movember #menshealth #SouthBayMoBros
