A benefit corporation is a traditional corporation with modified obligations, committing it to higher standards of purpose, accountability and transparency. Certified B Corps are reviewed every three years and they have to score 80 points or higher on the B Impact Assessment.
Shopping with a B Corp means your dollar is doing a little extra. These companies serve a Purpose of bettering the planet or a community with the sale of their products. More companies are moving in this direction and I love supporting B Corps whenever I can!
