Why Become a B Corp?

 

B Corps want to be part of something bigger than themselves, and of course it has to make business sense. B Corp Certification helps companies:

 

  • Differentiate from pretenders
  • Generate awareness of endeavors
  • Attract and engage team members
  • Get recognized among other businesses doing good
  • Build credibility by benchmarking performance
  • Access member services and discounts
  • Save resources
  • Find and work with like-minded peers
  • Reach potential investors, partners, and collaborators
  • Galvanize trust among customers/consumers/clients
  • Protect your company’s mission
  • Help lead a global movement

 

      What is a B Corp?

 

 

Certification – Like fair trade (or organic or Energy Star), but for a company


Accountability
 – Meets the highest standards of verified performance
and transparency

Mindedness – A better way to do business — better for workers,
communities, and the planet

Community – To work together and increase our individual and collective
impacts in all areas

Movement – Leading a global movement of people using business as a
force for good

From The Founder

If you care about pollution, fair labor, and general fairness; if you believe that a business is not really good unless they truly care about their customers and are willing to be transparent to prove it; if you want to support the greater good when you make purchases but can’t easily discern responsible businesses from those with clever marketing; then you’ve been looking for B Corps. B Corps ensure corporate responsibility and transparency through a rigorous certification process to help you know with whom you are doing business. Salt Palm and its affiliates seek first to do business with like-minded partners including fellow Certified B Corps and benefit corporations.
