Is there a difference between a B Corp and Benefit Corporation?
Yes! Both B Corps and Benefit Corporations are leaders of a global movement to use business as a force for good. The critical difference between the two is that Benefit Corporations self-report performance standards. In contrast, B Corps are assessed and scored by the nonprofit B Lab. We’re proud to be both.
