B Corps are certified through a rigorous process called the B Impact Assessment by the nonprofit B Lab. Completing the assessment and becoming a Certified B Corp is no easy feat, and it can take a lot of time and energy. Becoming certified is a powerful tool to hold your business to high standards of social responsibility, environmental stewardship, and transparency.
B Local PDX has tools and resources available to our community help your business complete the assessment process.
