Co-Founder & Chairperson, B Lab Taiwan B Corp Asia
Certified B Corporations are for-profit companies that use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. They are certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.
B Corps are at the center of a global movement—a collective effort that includes investors, legislators, academics, and mainstream corporations. Together, they are working to create an economy that measures success in terms of the wellbeing of people, communities, and the natural world. Leaders from the B Corp movement are collaborative by nature, driven to contribute to durable, systemic change for the better.
In this workshop, participants will get hands-on experience with the B Corp movement’s key evaluation mechanism, the B Impact Assessment, which will help them to:
- Achieve a baseline measurement of extra-financial performance as it relates to a wide range of stakeholders
- Benchmark performance against nearly 70,000 companies worldwide that have taken the BIA
- Align team members, shareholders, suppliers, and partners to a shared purpose and desired level of impact, measured and re-evaluated every two years
- Maintain consistent effort across the value chain by setting targets, tracking progress, and engaging with the best practices of a global community of pioneering entre- and intrapreneurs
Many types of businesses are choosing to become certified B Corps, including maturing social enterprises seeking investment, family businesses with purpose in their DNA, and multinational organizations looking to drive positive social and environmental impact throughout their organizations and in every context in which they operate.
The workshop will be facilitated by :
- Tharani Prakash, Pearl Consulting
- Sakulthip Keeratiphantawong, NISE Corp
- Yeji Lee, MYSC (Merry Year Social Company)
- Lily Tung, Leping Social Entrepreneur Foundation
For the sake of time, workshop participants will work with the Quick Impact Assessment, an abbreviated version of the B Impact Assessment.
