B Lab’s standards are at the heart of the B Corp movement and our Theory of Change, defining social, environmental, and governance best practices for businesses. Our standards serve as the foundation for everything our network does – from B Corp Certification to our policy work worldwide. Learn more about how our standards are developed, and how they’re driving economic system change.
Continually evolving our tools and strategies for measuring impact.
As the B Corp movement grows, B Lab must continually evolve the tools and strategies we use to effectively evaluate different industries, policies, and practices. The B Impact Assessment and our standards are independently governed by our Standards Advisory Council, curated by B Lab, and improved by our community of users and stakeholders.
Evolving Performance Requirements
We update and improve our standards on a regular basis. While specific revision mechanisms will vary by the nature of the project, all standards development projects are informed by research and multi-stakeholder input. B Lab’s standards are independently governed by B Lab’s Standards Advisory Council and Board of Directors, with input from external stakeholders and various Working and Advisory Groups.
