B Impact Teams

B Impact Teams are self-organized teams of college/university students that assist businesses to measure and manage their impact. These student-led consulting teams serve their local community by assessing social and environmental metrics of community businesses using the B Impact Assessment.

Schools around the country have formed B Impact Teams on their campuses to serve their local business community. B Impact Teams work one-on-one with businesses, host workshops for area businesses, and more. Check out some examples below to find out more and to start planning how your B Impact Team will work with companies.

We’re thrilled you want to serve your local community and help businesses measure and manage their impact. We strongly recommend that students familiarize themselves with the B Impact Assessment, the standards, and B Impact scoring before reaching out to companies.

We recommend you first check out our How-to planning guide for B Impact Teams to familiarize yourself with the process.
