Transforming the Global Economy to Benefit All People, Communities & Planet

The current economic system prioritises short-term gains over long-term value; me over we; now over the future; inequity over justice; profits over people and planet.  But it doesn’t have to be this way. The B Corp movement, led by B Lab & Sistema B, positively impacts nearly 300,000 workers at over 4,000 companies in over 150 industries and 77 countries.  Together, we’re transforming the global economy to benefit all people, communities, and the planet.
