There is a huge variety of certifications, accreditations, badges and awards given to companies these days, and rightly so - ranging from diversity issues to fair trade marks.
The B Corp certification process does not compete with or replace these.
On the contrary.
The value of the B Corp process is that it’s like an umbrella assessment that takes into account of all the different things that a company may have pursued or been awarded. They all count towards the score the B Corp will achieve.
And, if you love awards, the B Corp movement has awards of its own. B Corps can compete for “best for the world” recognition across certain disciplines, such as the environment.
