Welcome to B Lab
We are a non-profit organization leading an economic systems change in Africa. Challenging the status quo and encouraging an economy that benefits all people, communities, and the planet. Our mission is to accelerate a shift in how business is done in Africa. To redefine business success as not just for profit but also purpose. To encourage businesses to work for positive impact for all stakeholders: workers, customers, community and the environment. Our network creates standards and tools for business, advocates for policy change and certifies companies – known as B Corps – who are leading the way.
To date, our community includes over 50 B Corps across Africa impacting people and the planet positively. Over 2000 businesses in Africa measure and manage their impact using the B Impact Assessment and the SDG Action Manager.
Our global community consists of over 4,000 B Corps in 70 countries and 150 industries, over 8,000 benefit corporations, and more than 100,000 businesses manage their impact using our tools.
Certified B Corporations (B Corps) are a new kind of business that balances purpose and profit. They are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment. This is a community of leaders, driving a global movement of people using business as a force for good.
