B (Benefit) Corporation Certification

We are creating a better, more sustainable future and leaving a lasting impact on the generations of tomorrow.

We've joined with business leaders across the world to transform the global economy for the benefit of all people, communities, and the planet.

Technology for Good

The technology industry is just beginning to understand the role it has to play in this movement, and we’re excited to pave the way for others to follow. This effort is foundational to our mission and vision as responsible stewards of a sustainable future.

We’ll be honest—achieving B Corp certification isn’t easy.
The certification process requires rigor, focus, and a significant investment of time and resources. Most importantly, it demands a deep alignment internally to walking our talk every day when it comes to environmental and social sustainability. As a result, our shared commitment is stronger than ever. 

What is a B Corp?

B Corporation certification is a recognition awarded to businesses that meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. B Corps are for-profit companies that have demonstrated a commitment to creating positive social and environmental impacts alongside generating profits. Certification is awarded by B Lab, a non-profit company that measures a company's social and environmental performance against the standards in the online B Impact Assessment.


B Corp certification is recognized globally and serves as a mark of distinction for companies committed to using business as a force for good. It helps clients, investors, and other stakeholders identify businesses that prioritize social and environmental responsibility and are dedicated to making a positive impact on the world.

What is the process to become B Corp Certified?

To achieve B Corp certification, a company undergoes a comprehensive assessment process that evaluates its practices across various dimensions, including governance, worker treatment, environmental impact, community engagement, and customer relations. The assessment covers factors such as the company's mission, practices, policies, and transparency in order to determine its overall impact on society and the environment.


B Corp certification goes beyond just evaluating a company's products or services. It assesses the entire business model and operations to ensure that the company aligns with sustainable and ethical practices. Once certified, a B Corp is required to meet ongoing performance and reporting standards to maintain its certification status.


To achieve certification, a company must: 

  • Demonstrate high social and environmental performance by achieving a B Impact Assessment score of 80 or above and passing our risk review. Multinational corporations must also meet baseline requirement standards.

  • Make a legal commitment by changing their corporate governance structure to be accountable to all stakeholders, not just shareholders, and achieve benefit corporation status if available in their jurisdiction.

  • Exhibit transparency by allowing information about their performance measured against B Lab’s standards to be publicly available on their B Corp profile on B Lab’s website.

Measuring our Impact

To achieve (and sustain) our B Corp certification, we needed to measure our company’s carbon and water footprint. We love to innovate and solve hard problems, so this challenge was right up our alley. The result? A custom in-house application that allows us to:

  • Get a rough estimate of the amount of energy and water Commerce Architects consumes and flight emissions we contribute to atmospheric pollution. 

  • Make it easy for employees to understand Commerce Architects' and their personal environmental impact.
