B Corps: Measure What Matters LIMITED
Limited Capacity seats available

Ever wonder how we can tell the difference between a good company and what is just good marketing? Most of us want to support good brands that are doing good for people and planet. But we're also very skeptic of what companies are claiming. How can we know for sure? We need standards. We need standards to help us differentiate good companies, whether we are a consumer, an investor, the government or a business looking to make partnerships.

In this session, we will explore the emergence of the B Corp, both the Certified B Corp as well as the Benefit Corporation as a legally recognized corporate structure. We will then get into why it is important to measure your company's social and environmental performance, at any stage, and a free tool to help you do so.

Join Andy Fyfe from B Lab, the non-profit behind the B Corp as he will engage a conversation on how business can be part of the solution and not the problem. Bring an open mind, your business teams, and your friends who own businesses that do good. You will walk away knowing more about B Corps, Bay Area B Corp activity, and a new tool to track and improve your business practices.
