Since 2015, Los Angeles Certified B Corporations have joined together to redefine success in business, drive community change and spread knowledge about business as a force for good.
We join 6,400+ global businesses who are Certified B Corporations dedicated to meeting the highest standards of positive social and environmental impact, stakeholder company governance, and equitable economic contribution.
Together we are a movement, the B Corporation movement.
What is a B Corporation?
B Corporations, or B Corps, are for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. Through adopting stakeholder governance, B Corps use the power of business to do more than seek profit. They use their profits and growth to positively impact their stakeholders — and the planet.
All B Corporations take a test called the B Impact Assessment. It is the most credible tool a company can use to measure its impact on its workers, community, environment, customers, and company structure. By measuring what matters, companies that use the assessment have the data they need to understand where they need to improve; and what steps they need to take to get there.
