How 3 B Corps Are Addressing the Climate Crisis – B Lab

Written by B the Change

As the climate crisis continues to dominate concerns for the future, with rising global temperatures and recent fires in the Amazon Rainforest, many businesses have begun doing the work to not only slow environmental damage but to, eventually, reverse it and actually help ensure a cleaner planet. These net-positive businesses are conscious of their reliance on the Earth, recognize the impact of their operations, and realize they cannot wait for governments to act to address these global issues.

Through B Corporation certification, businesses must exhibit superior environmental standards, as assessed by the B Impact Assessment (BIA). Several B Corps “vote every day” for a cleaner planet by setting ambitious goals and implementing programs designed to give their business a net-positive environmental impact. B Corps that exemplify this positive work — scoring in the top 10 percent of the BIA — are honored each year as Best For The World.

This year’s honorees include carbon-offset provider NativeEnergy, a B Corp since 2016 and a benefit corporation since 2018. The B Corp works with businesses to mitigate their impact on the planet by taking a look at a company’s entire supply chain to find areas for improvement. NativeEnergy also promotes net-positive practices like regenerative agriculture.
