Certified B Corporations are a new type of corporation which use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. B Corps are certified by the non-profit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. And unlike traditional corporations, Certified B Corps are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on their employees, suppliers, community, consumers, and environment.
We at TerraCarbon became a Certified B Corp in 2012 to demonstrate that our business has a higher purpose than simply profit, and that is contributing to the protection of the world’s forests for the benefit of the world’s climate, wildlife, and people.
