Business communities globally have long been committed to bringing businesses in making impacts to the environment, economy and human resources. In other words, “Using Business as A Force for Good”. The spirit was manifested through B Corporation (#BCorp), an international certification led by B Lab that recognizes organizations that not only care on the impacts of their operations to the workers, customers, and suppliers, but also to the communities and environment. The certification is given to companies that during the audit process are able to prove that their business processes – starting from supply chains, operational systems, and products marketing – can have positive impacts and add values to the society and environment. B Corp certification focuses on five areas: governance, employees, environment, community and consumers. As of now, there are over 3,000 certified B Corporations across 150 industries in more than 70 countries.
As an effort to continuously promote sustainable business operations as well as increase awareness towards Certified #BCorps, On the 5th December, 2019, we are organizing, together with Danone-AQUA, SIAP,a barn raising entitled “B Corp Forum 2019 – Using Business as a Force of Good”. The annual event gathers all relevant key stakeholders, including Government, business communities, civil society organizations, chamber of commerce, students, and media.
The main objective of the event is to increase awareness on Certified B Corporation and its benefits among the business players in maintaining their social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose.
