The B Movement in Asia is working to create a New Asian Economy, in which success is measured in terms of the wellbeing of people, communities, and the natural world. We are part of the global B Movement, which has a presence in North America, Latin America, Continental Europe, the United Kingdom, Lusophone Africa, and Australia. In addition to supporting companies that are committed to continuous improvement and that generate positive social and environmental impact, the B Movement manages several initiatives to generate integrated value for people and planet.
REALIZING A GREATER GOOD for the whole Earth
We believe that addressing the preeminent social and environmental issues that the world’s citizens face requires systemic change. The movement supports the use of market forces, including certified B Corporations, to promote social goods—such as equality, inclusion, and transparency—and environmental goods—including conservation, ecosystem restoration, waste reduction, and the protection of valuable shared natural resources. We advocate for building medium- and long-term impact into decision-making at all levels, from individuals to corporations to public policy.
The B Movement in Asia is proud to support one national B Lab in Taiwan, a national B Lab Market Builder organization in Korea, and a community of 81 B Corporations across 17 countries. We also promote public-private partnerships and pursue legislative action to create favorable conditions for B Corporations, impact investors, and social enterprises. We aim to broaden and deepen the world’s understanding of B Corporations and business impact through initiatives in academic research and education. And we're taking the conversation to the public by engaging with media to promote stories about social and environmental change and to show a positive side of business.
B Lab is a nonprofit organization that serves a global movement of people using business as a force for good™. Its vision is that one day all companies compete not only to be the best in the world, but the Best for the World® and as a result society will enjoy a more shared and durable prosperity.
B the Change
B the Change exists to inform and inspire people who have a passion for using business as a force for good in the world. The multimedia platform is committed to telling the most compelling stories possible to the largest audiences possible to propel the movement of business toward its destiny as a powerful force for good. B the Change aims to dramatically broaden and deepen engagement with entrepreneurs, managers, employees, investors and citizens in one of the most important discussions of our time. B the Change is a collaboration of B Lab, the community of Certified B Corps, and the movement of people using business as a force for good.
Best for the World
"Best for the World" is a designation that B Lab awards to outstanding Certified B Corporations—defined as the top 10% of scorers on the B Impact Assessment. The evaluation measures many different aspects of a company, including governance, business models, policies and practices concerning workers, communities, and the environment.
Inclusive Economy CHallenge
The B Corp Inclusion Challenge invites every B Corp to set goals and improve on 3 or more inclusion metrics in the B Impact Assessment by September 2017. The Launched at the 2016 B Corp Champions Retreat, the B Corp Inclusion Challenge is the first-ever call-to-action for the B Corp Community to improve our collective impact and take action to move toward an inclusive economy.
