The B Impact Assessment
Business needs comprehensive, credible, comparable impact standards to support economic systems change. Used by more than 150,000 businesses, the B Impact Assessment is a digital tool that can help measure, manage, and improve positive impact performance for the environment, communities, customers, suppliers, employees, and stakeholders. This assessment is also the first step towards B Corp Certification.
Here’s how it works
Assess your impact
Complete the B Impact Assessment by answering a series of questions about your company’s practices and outputs across five categories: governance, workers, community, the environment, and customers.
Compare your impact
Evaluate your performance compared to the thousands of other businesses that have taken the B Impact Assessment. You’ll see where your business is outperforming others, and where there’s room for improvement.
Improve your impact
Use the B Impact Assessment platform to identify, track, and learn about improvement opportunities and best practices over time.

They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
