What is a B Corporation?
B Corporation is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic is to milk.
B Corps are for-profit companies independently certified to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency; companies that are leading the movement to use business as a force for good. Given our history and corporate purpose, Council Fire was one of the earliest adopters and was certified as a B Corp in 2010. Our own corporate behavior and the expertise we bring to our clients both rest squarely on the shoulders of our sustainability ethic and role as a leading social enterprise. We are world-renowned experts in the sustainable business arena and now serve as global ambassadors for the rapidly-expanding B Corp movement. We practice what we preach, lead by example, and are thrilled to be part of a growing community of like-minded organizations who recognize the necessity of ‘being the change that we seek.’
And we’re unabashedly proud that our measured positive economic, social and environmental impacts have led to repeated designations for Council Fire as a “Best for the World” company. This honor reflects that fact that our annual assessment score has placed us in the top 10% of all B Corps around the world.
