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 Locals are place-based communities of people using business as a force for good™. At the core of every B Local are Certified B Corporations®—for-profit companies that use the power of business to create a shared and durable prosperity for all. Led by passionate volunteers, B Locals exist to create connections, increase the positive impact of their B Corp community, and raise awareness of the B Economy.
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.
