Join us on May 6, 2021 for an engaging and interactive seminar during which we will explain what B Corp status is, how it relates to the benefit corporation legal structure, and what it takes to be part of this global movement. Learn why other companies are going the extra mile and formally committing to balancing their impact on people and the planet with profits – and explore whether making that commitment is right for your business.
Profits and Growth for a Greater End
|Is your business committed to using profits and growth as a means to a greater end for your employees, community, and the environment? If so, your business should consider the newest type of corporate business structure and certification, which allows you to become part of a community of like-minded business owners who are committed to working toward those same goals.
The B Corp community continues to grow – and currently includes more than 3600 purpose-driven companies, large and small, in 74 countries, in more than 150 industries – including companies like Patagonia, Allbirds, New Belgium Brewing, Grove, Athleta, King Arthur Flour, and Uncommon Goods – as well as smaller local businesses such as marketing firm Fig Industries, painting company Two Dudes Painting, and wholesale cookie manufacturer Stroopie, in Lancaster, Absolute Pilates in Mechanicsburg, and mental health services firm Community Services Group in Mountville.
B Corps believe businesses should:
- Be the change they seek in the world.
- Conduct business as if people and place mattered.
- Aspire to do no harm and benefit all through their products, practices, and profits,
- Act with the understanding that each is dependent upon another, and thus responsible for each other and future generations.
