B Corporation Certification is a company-level certification. B Lab’s brand guidelines and certification terms for companies with related entities helps to ensure that the B Corp intellectual property (IP) preserves its meaning as a designation of a business that meets high standards of verified performance, accountability, and transparency. In most cases, a Certified B Corporation can also use the Certified B Corp IP on brands, divisions, and affiliated entities or subsidiaries — including those with a different name than the Certified B Corp parent — if those brands have been verified to meet the performance requirement independently. This typically occurs during certification and recertification process.
Recognizing the need for guidance for small businesses, Fairtrade and B Lab have partnered to develop a joint guide supporting these companies in implementing socially and environmentally responsible business practices, even with limited resources.
