Since 2006, over 2500 companies in 50+ countries around the world have become B Certified.

 

Business as a force for good

B Corporations value accountability and transparency above all else. With their commitment to positive social and environmental impact, not only are they setting new standards for triple bottom line companies, but they're also acting as leaders for the next generation of entrepreneurs. By propelling this movement of business as a force for good, we hope that B Corps will one day be the norm instead of the exception! 


B Local

During the monthly Vancouver B Locals, members from the B Corp community gather to discuss current issues, network, and share business strategies. It's a great opportunity to reconnect with your B Corp neighbours, make new connections, and learn what your community has been up to!

Plus, there's free breakfast and coffee. 

If you're a newly Certified B Corp, be sure to stop by and introduce yourself! All B Corp community members are welcome, whether you're a local Vancouverite or visiting from abroad. 


Our Community Ground Rules

  • Speak from personal experience

  • Lead with inquiry

  • Move up, move up

  • Value diverse perspectives

  • Get comfortable with discomfort
