B Corp Declaration of Interdependence

We envision a new sector of the economy which harnesses the power of private enterprise to create public benefit. This sector is comprised of a new type of corporation – the B Corporation™ – which is purpose-driven and creates benefit for all stakeholders, not just shareholders.

As members of this emerging sector and as entrepreneurs and investors in B Corporations™

We hold these truths to be self-evident:

  • That we must be the change we seek in the world;

  • That all business ought to be conducted as if people and place mattered;

  • That, through their products, practices, and profits, businesses should aspire to do no harm and benefit all.

  • To do so, requires that we act with the understanding that we are each dependent upon another and thus responsible for each other and future generations.

B Corps create exponentially positive impact when they use their Business as a Force for Good

They shift from “products for good” to “companies for good”

This positions companies to not only be the Best in the World – but the Best FOR the World

They maximize shared stakeholder value rather than shareholder value

This creates a shared and durable prosperity

They are essential to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals by 2030

The SDG Goals are a collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all”
