Certified B Corporations (called “B Corps”) are companies fulfilling a mission beyond profit. They’re actively engaged with standards set by the nonprofit B Lab, from those related to environmental causes and social improvement to community development and employee advancement.
Workers at B Lab and Kregel & Co., a B Corporation in Pennsylvania, partnered with the nonprofit MANNA to bring free meals to people battling life-threatening illnesses. Such community outreach aligns with the B Corp principles.

A people-centered approach is at the heart of the B Corp core principles.
