What is the value proposition of becoming a B Corp?

There are some opportunities, particularly on the community side, that are only available to companies who formally join the B Corp network. However, using the assessment tool, accessing the shared learning, applying the best practice guides and acting on the ideas for improvement are available to everyone. It also depends on whose perspective we are looking at the value proposition from: the board? marketing? operations? Here is a varied list of benefits an organisation may see across both scenarios:

  • Commercial durability
  • Future-proofing and resilience
  • Lower risk profile
  • Mission lock without asset lock
  • Mission clarity
  • Access to a global community
