It’s B Corp Month! This month B The Change is celebrating and sharing stories about Certified B Corporations: how they help each of us vote every day for a better future through the places we work, shop and live.

Now a community of more than 3,200 companies in 150 industries and 71 countries around the world, B Corps meet verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. The B Corp community demonstrates daily that business can be a force for good.

This week, we share the important aspects that set B Corps apart from other businesses in B The Change Weekly.

B Corps around the globe are making a difference and remaking the typical business mold — in numerous, game-changing ways.

Get the basics on B Corps — their innovative operations, practices, and governance — in this overview on B The Change.

Redefining Success Through a Circular Model

Slowly but surely, many companies are becoming more socially conscious and environmentally aware. That’s good news for businesses like B Corp Aliter, which buys, refurbishes and sells computer network equipment.

On B The Change, Odette van Zijdveld of B Corp Aliter Networks touts the promise of a circular IT model that will help businesses save on costs while boosting profits and helping our planet and its people.

How B Corps Are Changing the Essence of Business

In the current market, says Shaun Russell of B Corp Skandinavisk, the word “consumer” can sound criminal, bringing a feeling of guilt with every purchase. But ironically, he says, the very thing that has brought us to this point is the best tool to address it.

On B The Change, Russell says that by changing how we all consume — governments, businesses and citizens — we can start making the change the world needs for a sustainable, healthy future.
