Programs & Tools Overview

B Lab provides companies with the programs and tools necessary to understand their environmental and social impact - whether or not they are Certified B Corporations. We won't stop until all business is a force for good, from small enterprises to multinationals, and we're continually developing new resources to fit the needs of B Corps and non-B Corps alike.


Measure and manage your company’s impact.

What is it? The free B Impact Assessment enables companies to measure, manage, and improve their impact by answering a series of questions about business practices and outputs. 

Who is it for? Any for-profit company — in fact, the B Impact Assessment is already used by more than 150,000 businesses. You don’t have to be a B Corp to use this free and confidential tool, nor do you have to be a C-suite executive or seasoned sustainability professional.

Find out where your business stands on the Sustainable Development Goals.

What is it? Developed by B Lab and the United Nations Global Compact, the SDG Action Manager is a free self-assessment that helps all businesses understand their contribution toward facilitating the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and plan for improvements. 

Who is it for? Every business, big or small, with an ambition to understand and manage their performance on the SDGs. You do not have to be a B Corporation.

Our program for multinationals.

What is it? Inspired by the leadership of the global B Corporation community, B Movement Builders is a collaborative coalition of leading multinational companies that are committed to the principles of the B Corp movement. 

Who is it for? Publicly traded multinational companies with at least $1 billion in revenue. .

How do I get started? Before joining the program, companies must undergo a Risk Review to determine eligibility and demonstrate meaningful progress on key goals related to their social and environmental performance.

Pending B Corp Status

A way for start-ups and smaller companies to signal they're committed to using business as a force for good.

What is it? A program for start-ups and smaller companies, signaling to current and future investors that a company is beginning to measure and manage its social and environmental performance with the best tools available. After a period of time determined by their local B Lab or Sistema B organization, Pending Bs must go through the full verification process with B Lab to certify as a B Corp. 

Who is it for? The Pending B Corp status is designed to give start-ups and smaller companies time to prepare for the rigorous process of B Corp Certification. 

How do I get started? You will need to meet the legal accountability requirement, submit a prospective B Impact Assessment, sign the Pending B Corp agreement, and pay a one-time fee.

Collective Action

Developing local, regional, and global communities for change.

From mobilizing climate action with leaders across sectors, to dismantling white supremacy in our network and broader business community, to organizing against wealth and gender inequality, the B Corp movement is taking collective action on the issues that matter most to our global economic system.

Global Policy

Advocating for political and governmental action on economic systems change.

As the nonprofit network advancing the global B Corp movement, B Lab drives the creation and implementation of policy work pushing for meaningful legal change around corporate accountability and social and environmental impact.


Become a B Corp.

What is it? B Corp Certification is a rigorous and holistic certification demonstrating that your business is meeting high standards of performance, verified by transparency and accountability requirements.

Who is it for? For companies already practicing responsible business, and who want to commit to playing a part in economic systems change and driving continuous improvement.

How do I get started? The first step on your journey is to complete the free and confidential B Impact Assessment and submit it for review.  If you reach a minimum required score of 80 and fulfill the Legal Requirement in your jurisdiction, you sign the B Corp Declaration of Interdependence,  pay an Annual Certification Fee to become a B Corp, and share your score publicly in the B Corp Directory. You will be required to recertify every three years.
