Mindy feels fortunate and humbled to work with this community of certified B Corporations, who hold themselves to a high standard of accountability and transparency.

B Lab is the non-profit behind B Corp certification, pursued by companies who operate at a high level of accountability and transparency. In three short years, B Lab have grown a movement of entrepreneurs using business as a force for good in Australia & New Zealand. We have 200 certified B Corps, all of whom are proving that businesses can make money and solve social and environmental problems at the same time. These two pursuits are not mutually exclusive, in fact, it's a better way to do business.

In recent years, business increasingly has been viewed as a major cause of social, environmental, and economic problems. Companies are widely perceived to be prospering at the expense of the broader community. The solution lies in the principle of shared value for all stakeholders—companies should actively benefit its employees, communities, customers and the environment. Hear from B Lab on how they are redefining success in business by growing a movement of leaders who are using business as a force for good. Also hear from certified B Corporations Beyond Bank and Freerange Future who are inspiring case studies on how to put purpose into practice.
