Event Details

Learn business sustainability basics and the ins-and-outs of B Corp certification in this one-day workshop. 

B Corp is to business what fair trade certification is to coffee and chocolate, or USDA organic certification is to food. B Corps are certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. B Corp certification can help differentiate your business, generate press, attract investors and engage talent. B Corp certification makes good business sense.

In this hands-on session, the B Lab team will:

  • Build your understanding of the four pillars of B Corp certification (governance, workers, community and environment)

  • Provide one-on-one help with your assessment

  • Demystify the B Corp Impact Assessment with tools, tips and strategies to improve your score and achieve certification

By the end of the session, you’ll be ready to submit the assessment and be one step closer to joining the Certified B Corp community!


Session Outline

  • 2:00 – 2:20 p.m. –  Introduction to the B Corp movement and community.

  • 2:20 – 2:50 p.m. – De-mystifying the B Impact Assessment. Tips and strategies for completing the assessment, improving your score and achieving certification.

  • 2:50 – 5:00 p.m. –  Live working session and one-on-one support

This is a live working session, so bring your laptop and charger, and be prepared to work through the B Impact Assessment and/or your improvement plans in real time.

The workshop will be led by Joyce Sou, Director of B Lab Canada, and Erin Doherty, Business Impact Strategist and Innovation Guelph business sustainability mentor.
