A force for good: How B Corps are shaping the future of sustainable business - edie.net

With the B Corp movement continuing to gain momentum, this one-hour webinar will hear from the inspirational leaders and experts who have gone through the certification process and are actively making business a force for good among workers, suppliers, communities, and the environment.

The climate crisis is raging. Technologies are evolving. The future of work is upon us and new paradigms of growth are emerging. NOW is the time to reinvent business models, shift corporate cultures, change our understanding of value, and reposition business as a force for positive change.

B Corp Certification is arguably the most powerful way to make that change happen and build credibility, trust, and value for your business. More than 4,000 certified B Corporations across 153 industries are now meeting the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose.

This one-hour edie webinar, hosted in association with sustainability consultancy and edie’s B Corp partner, Seismic, will bring together a selection of certified B Corps to discuss how the process worked, what role the in-house sustainability and CSR teams have played, and benefits experienced so far.

During the session, edie will also share its own insights and updates as the brand’s Publisher, Faversham House, is currently undergoing the B Corp certification process.
