Introduction to Benefit Corporations and B Corps

This new corporation subtype allows entrepreneurs and investors to organize stock corporations that can pursue both economic and social objectives.

Benefit Corporations are a new class of cause-oriented corporation that:

(1) creates a material positive impact on society and the environment;
(2) expands fiduciary duty to require consideration of non-financial interests when making decisions
(3) reports on its overall social and environmental performance using recognized third party standards.  

Certified B Corporations are a new type of corporation which uses the power of business
to solve social and environmental problems.  B Lab, a nonprofit organization, certifies B Corporations. There are over 500 Certified B Corporations across 60 different industries. B Corporations are a diverse community with one unifying goal:
to redefine success in business.

The best resource center for information on B Corps is B Lab.
