The Impact of the B Corp Movement Spans all Industries and Functions

the impact of the b corp movement

From the BlackRock Letter to Fortune magazine, the B Corp movement is in the news. Y Scouts is proud to be a Certified B Corp and a member of this growing community dedicated to using business as a force for good. We’re thrilled to exclusively support clients and candidates who prioritize purpose, mission, and values.

When you think about B Corps you likely envision retailers and other product focused organizations; places like Seventh Generation, Numi Organic Tea and Greyston Bakery with their innovative open hiring concept.  The movement, however, goes beyond sustainable products and their business models. From social impact, financial institutions like Sunrise Banks with their mission of “empowering the underserved to achieve” to innovative providers of accessible education like the American College of Education, the B Corp community is inclusive of all industries and functions.

From Finance and Accounting for an AG company to Legal Counsel on Environmental and Energy Law, or Operations for an Eco-tourism company, the B Corp Community includes everyone working to create a positive impact for their employees, communities, and the environment.

And that’s the best thing.  In these times when so many forces are positioned to divide us, the B Corp mission brings us all together, in our own unique ways that bridge business function, industry, mission, and even party lines, to balance purpose and profit.
