Celebrating B Corp Month

B Corp Month is an annual, global campaign. Every year during March, B Lab and the global B Corp community join together to celebrate everything it means to be a B Corp. We're taking the opportunity to tell you a little more about what it means to be a B Corp as we're so happy to have been officially certified.

We’re excited to be joining a global community of businesses committed to positively impact all people, communities and the planet. It’s confirmation of what we’ve been working hard to achieve — using business as a force for good.   

Certifying is only the start of our journey — we’re on a mission to continue improving our impact in order to create an inclusive, equitable and regenerative economy. 

The B Corp movement is a global movement of People Using Business as a Force for Good®. Together, we are shifting our economic system from profiting only the few to benefitting all, from concentrating wealth and power to ensuring equity, from extraction to regeneration, and from prioritizing individualism to embracing interdependence.

What is a B Corporation™?

Certified B Corporations, or B Corps, are companies verified by B Lab to meet high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. 

B Lab is the nonprofit network transforming the global economy to benefit all people, communities, and the planet. B Lab creates standards, policies, tools, and programs that shift the behaviour, culture, and structure of capitalism. We mobilize the global B Corp community towards collective action to address society’s most critical challenges, and we collaborate with governments, academia, coalitions, and other institutions to drive economic systems change. 

B Lab’s social and environmental business standards define how businesses can be a force for good. Based on stakeholder input, research, and established best practices, these standards are the basis for B Corp Certification requirements and B Lab’s impact management tools, and they inform the network’s programs and collective action initiatives. Overseen by B Lab’s independent Standards Advisory Council, the standards help companies improve, measure, and manage their impact on people and the planet.

There are currently over 1,500 B Corps in the UK and 7,000 worldwide. Other Cornish B Corps include LeapFinisterreGreen and BluePentire Drinks and St Eval.
