What is B Corp?


Social enterprises have gradually become a global movement. It breaks the dichotomy of the typical non-profit and for-profit. More and more enterprises define their own social missions and take actions accordingly. In order to respond to this trend, the new legal structures and certification are gradually established.

In 2007, a non-profit organization called "B Lab" was established in USA (http://www.bcorporation.net/). It creates an authentication mechanism with financial and social standards to certify whether the enterprises meet the social and environmental performance, corporate responsibility, transparency and related stringent standard. It is committed to promote "redefine business success" global campaign.

The enterprises passed the comprehensive and objective assessment are called "B Corporation" (or B Corp). It is considered as a new model of enterprise that can be both profitable and fair. “B Corp fulfills the highest standards of corporate social responsibility”, quoted from Magazine "Inc.". It says CSR and public service are not only donations. B Corp can achieve more environmental and social mission in the course of commercial activities. (YouTube Video)
