B Corps are a new kind of business that unites purpose and profit and are swiftly proving their aim not only to be the best in the world, but the best for the world.
The Leading Certification for Business as a Force for Good
Certified B Corporations, or ‘B Corps’ s are a new kind of business that unites purpose and profit. B Corps’ leaders and governors are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment. B Corps are proof that there is a viable alternative to traditional, shareholder-centric business thinking. Junxion has been a proud Certified B Corporation since 2016.
B Corps share a vision of a more just, equitable and regenerative economy that uses business as a force for good. Junxion has always promoted the B Corp principles of performance, transparency and accountability and we’re active members of the international B Corp community.
Junxion’s B Corp services
We’re on a mission to help leaders build the success stories of this new economy, so it’s not surprising that many of our clients are B Corps and that we actively support companies as they navigate the process to achieve the rigorous certification. To certify as a B Corp, companies must achieve a score of at least 80 points (from a possible 200) on the B Impact Assessment, which assess companies’ performance in five key impact areas: Governance, Workers, Community, Environment and Customers. B Corp Certification doesn’t just evaluate a product or service; it assesses the overall positive impact of the company as a whole.
We are experts at navigating this assessment and have supported dozens of companies to become Certified B Corporations, including The Body Shop and The Guardian newspaper. We also use it as a benchmarking and prioritisation tool to help clients build plans to increase their positive impact.
Being Part of the B Corp Movement
Several Junxionites are B Leaders—trained by B Lab, the organization behind the B Corp Certification, to take companies through the assessment. We also actively promote the B Corp movement and both Junxion’s Principals, Mike Rowlands and Adam Garfunkel, serve as B Corp Ambassadors. Adam also sits on the UK Standards Advisory Council where he advises on the next version of the Assessment. And our Vancouver office has helped run a number of ‘B Local’ community events.
Whether you are interested in the benefits of certification—including attracting and retaining great talent, opening up new business opportunities and locking in your mission—or want to learn and plan for more impact, let’s talk about how the B Corp framework can help you to outshine your competitors and earn a position among the leading companies that are being recognized for being ‘best for the world.’
