B Corp Certification
Certified B Corporations & Sustainable Brands Create Collective Impact
B Corps are companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. We are proud to be recognized among these sustainable brands, and as Florida’s only certified b corp in the coffee industry.
Today, there is a growing community of more than 4,000 Certified B Corps from 77 countries and over 153 industries working together toward 1 unifying goal: to redefine success in business.
By voluntarily meeting higher standards of transparency, accountability, and performance, Certified B Corps are distinguishing themselves as sustainable brands in a cluttered marketplace by offering a positive vision of a better way to do business.
B Corps create higher quality jobs and improve the quality of life in our communities. And, as the movement grows, it has become an increasingly powerful agent of change. We are passing laws. We are driving capital.
Government and the nonprofit sector are necessary but insufficient to address society’s greatest challenges. Business, the most powerful man-made force on the planet, must create value for society, not just shareholders. Systemic challenges require systemic solutions and the B Corp movement offers a concrete, market-based and scalable solution.
Over 4,000 sustainable brands have already joined our community, encouraging all companies to compete not just to be the best in the world, but to be the best for the world. As a result of our collective success, individuals and communities will enjoy greater economic opportunity, society will address its most challenging environmental problems, and more people will find fulfillment by bringing their whole selves to work.
