Let's grow the local B Corp community in Edmonton!

About this Event

Over the next year, we are looking at hosting a variety of events to convene existing and prospective B Corp businesses, as well as organizing B Impact Teams to help local businesses navigate the B Impact Assessment and develop resources to improve their social and environmental performance.

One of the first initiatives we are piloting is a class of undergraduate students at MacEwan to guide businesses through the B Impact Assessment. We are wrapping up this pilot with a few local businesses and would like to share those results with you.

We have also partnered with the Net Impact Edmonton (Professional Chapter) to plan the 2nd Enlightened Economy Summit (on May 14th) and discuss onboarding more B Impact Teams.

Come and join us at this B Corp Edmonton networking opportunity at Roundhouse, and learn more about how the B Impact Assessment has helped some local businesses chart their path towards B Corp certification.

2:00pm-3:30pm - Student presentations of local businesses pursuing B Corp certification and the results of their B Impact Assessment

3:30pm-5pm – Networking between B Corp businesses, those businesses pursuing B Corp certification, and the students involved
