Certified B Corporation Logo

Certified B Corporations™ are companies that have met high standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. These companies undergo a rigorous process in which B Lab™ evaluators use the B Impact Assessment™ that focuses on 5 categories: Environment, Governance, Community, Workers, and Customers. In order to qualify as a Certified B Corporation™, an organization must receive a minimum combined total score of 80, while the median score for most businesses is 50.9. They are proud to report that they scored 83.5!

In order to achieve B Corp certification, a company must: 

  • Demonstrate high social and environmental performance.
  • Make a legal commitment by changing their corporate governance structure to be accountable to all stakeholders, not just shareholders. 
  • Exhibit transparency by allowing information to be publicly available on their B Corp profile on B Lab’s website. 

One important aspect measured in the process is the impact a company has on the local communities in which it operates, including the environmental and social impact. B Corporations must demonstrate a commitment to maintaining both a low environmental impact and a positive community impact, including creating a regenerative economy by offering high-quality jobs with a demonstrated commitment to equity, inclusivity, and corporate responsibility.

Regarding this new designation, Paul Stamets, member, founder, and Chief Science Officer at Fungi Perfecti, said:
