Introduction to Benefit Corporations and Certified B Corps

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.

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