Three Irish companies with big social missions share their stories and discuss how a B Corp movement in Ireland can create lasting change.

About this Event

We are facing many critical issues like climate change, poverty, food security and it is difficult to know where to turn for action.

We believe growing a Certified B Corporation/B Corp movement can broaden the conversation in Ireland about our solutions to these issues and show how businesses – of any size – can have a measurable impact.

We’ll walk through what the B Corp certification is, how it can benefit your business and how we can work together to create a business community as a force for good.

<<< About B Corps >>>

Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corps are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.

Society’s most challenging problems cannot be solved by government and nonprofits alone. By harnessing the power of business, B Corps use profits and growth as a means to a greater end: positive impact for their employees, communities, and the environment. The B Corp community works toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of more high quality jobs with dignity and purpose.
