Why should you consider becoming B-Certified with FutureSense?
Becoming a B-Certified Corporation enhances a company’s purpose in their community and throughout the business landscape. Being a purpose-driven company, benefits all of your stakeholders including employees, society and the environment. We are at a time where stakeholders are more invested than ever in the transparency of a company. Operating as a B Corporation results in happier customers and greater profitability
Benefits for your company
Obtaining the B-Certification from B-Lab, provides a verified and globally recognized standard that shows your performance regarding sustainability, employee equality, and community support.
B Corps are sometimes confused with Benefit Corporations, but they are two completely different entities. B Corps have the verified performance assessment. Benefit corporations are just a legal structure for businesses that allows them to pursue positive stakeholder impacts as an addition to their main business activities. Certified B Corporations focus on positive stakeholder impacts as the core of their growth and success.
What is a certified B Corporation?
B-Certification encompasses a holistic approach to measuring a company’s social and environmental performance and presence. For-profit companies across the world are certified by B-Lab which is a non-profit corporation whose goal is to work with businesses to help create solutions for society’s biggest problems.
B Corporations focus on:
Creating stronger communities
B Corps help resolve some of society’s most challenging problems by working toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of more high quality jobs with dignity and purpose.
When you are certified you become part of a community of leaders and a global movement of people using business as a force for good. The values and aspirations of the B Corp community are embedded in the B Corp Declaration of Interdependence.
How does FutureSense help?
We complete the B Impact Assessment (BIA) with you
The BIA assesses your company’s interactions with your workers, customers, community, and environment. Completing it is quick, but filling it out successfully requires a bit of planning.
We identify gap areas and assist the organization in fulfilling those needs
No company is perfect. FutureSense helps you focus on the priorities that will move you forward.
We ensure you meet the legal requirements and the requirements of the impact study.
Certified B Corporations are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on all their stakeholders. This may mean updating articles of incorporation, reincorporating as benefit companies, and other structural changes.
Finally, we work with you to become “verified” by B-Lab by providing the foundation to receive at least 80-points on their 200-point scale.
FutureSense puts it all together to launch you on your journey as a B Corporation. And, we support your continued development as you build your score and success.
