The B Corp Movement: Community, Commitment and Certification
July 29 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm
Certified B Corporations are a new kind of business that balances purpose and profit. These businesses are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment.
