Many companies claim to be green, socially responsible, and committed to the triple bottom line – now consumers are demanding proof that those claims are true.

B Corp (Benefit Corporation) Certification is a clear way to set your business apart from those that are just good at “green” marketing. B Corps meet the highest standards for social and environmental performance and accountability. This third-party verification is the proof consumers need — and is just one of many benefits of becoming a Certified B Corp.

B Corp Certification isn’t just for corporations. It’s also tailored for sole proprietorships, LLCs, LLPs, and any other for-profit business model. How do you know if it’s a good fit for your company?

Come find out! During this session, you will become expert on:

·  B Corp Certification – what it is, and how to attain it.

·  The 3 main reasons businesses seek B Corp Certification.

·  Whether B Corp Certification is the right strategy for your company, large or small.

·  The many (unexpected!) benefits of B Corp Certification.

·  Some common misconceptions about B Corp Certification and legal benefit corporation status, and the difference between the two (and why this is the most exciting thing to hit corporate law since 1811. Really.).

·  How the B Corp movement is redefining success in business.

Plug in to the power of the B Corp community, and count the ways that B Corp Certification can benefit your business (so many!).
