What are B Corps?
B Corp is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk. B Corps are certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.
Today, there is a growing community of more than 1,000 Certified B Corps from 33 countries and over 60 industries working together toward 1 unifying goal: to redefine success in business.
There currently are 100 Canadian B Corps, which represent over 10% of the 910 global B Corps across 60 industries in 29 countries. (Canadian B Corps are the largest cluster outside of the United States)
This completely free event is part of Global Entrepreneurship Week.
