Our vision is simple yet ambitious: to create a new sector of the economy which uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. This sector will be comprised of a new type of corporation - the B Corporation - that meets rigorous and independent standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.Imagine that...a corporation that's dedicated to social and environmental problems, but within the context of creating a profitable company that thrives along with society - that's essentially a Certified B Corporation. The "B" stands for Benefit (maybe the "C" in C Corporation actually stands for Cash) and there are three basic tenants of operating a Certified B Corporation:
- Meet transparent and comprehensive standards of social and environmental performance;
- Legally expand their corporate responsibilities to include consideration of stakeholder interests; and
- Amplify the voice of sustainable business and for-profit social enterprise through the power of the unifying B Corporation brand.
As Global Patriots we should all demand sustainable business practices!
