COVID-19 support for Businesses
As leaders of the B Corp movement, your work has set the standard for responsible business around the world. You have shown that a different kind of economic system is possible. Now, as the COVID-19 crisis escalates and impacts us all, especially the most vulnerable, this new type of economic system is needed more than ever. B Lab East Africa is developing a variety of initiatives to support the B Corp community.
Upcoming activities and resources
Over the coming weeks, we will update this page with our latest activities and resources to help cushion our community against the implications of COVID-19. We will also be offering spaces for the B Corp community to talk about business pressures, speak to leaders with experience in challenging situations, and we will share newsletters with guidance and support.
To provide some hope and inspiration, we’re sharing a few stories of B Corps taking impactful measures and persevering in the face of uncertainty – reminding all of us that business can, and should, be a force for good. This is by no means an exhaustive list of B Corps taking action around the world, and we’ll continue sharing stories like these over the coming months
