The B Corp Handbook (Audio)
B Corporations are a new kind of company dedicated to meeting rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency—well-known companies like Ben & Jerry’s, Etsy, Method, New Belgium Brewing, and Patagonia are already on board. This is the first book to explain what B Corps are, how to become a B Corp, and what benefits B Corp certification offers.
  • Growing Movement: Learn how you can join a fast-growing, global movement to redefine success in business, led by well-known icons like Patagonia and Ben & Jerry's as well as disruptive upstarts like Warby Parker and Etsy, and recently covered by The New York Times, The Economist, The Wall Street Journal, Entrepreneur, and Inc.
  • Build a Better Business: Drawing on best practices from 100+ B Corps, this book shows that using business as a force for good can help distinguish your company in a crowded market, attract and retain the best employees, and increase customer trust, loyalty, and evangelism for your brand.

More than 1,000 companies from 80 industries and 30 countries are leading a global movement to redefine success in business. They're called B Corporations-B Corps for short-and these businesses create high quality jobs, help build stronger communities, and restore the environment, all while generating solid financial returns. Author and B Corp owner Ryan Honeyman worked closely with over 100 B Corp CEOs and senior executives to share their tips, advice, and best practice ideas for how to build a better business, and how to meet the rigorous standards for-and enjoy the benefits of-B Corp certification.

This book makes the business case for improving your social and environmental performance, and offers a step-by-step "quick start guide" on how your company can join an innovative and rapidly expanding community of businesses that want to make money and make a difference.
