Why is your feedback so important?

B Lab is working to evolve the standards for B Corp Certification. For more information about the project, please see the announcements here

This survey aims to gather feedback on the early drafts of new standards for B Corp Certification from non-B Corps — including  companies interested in the B Corp movement and in pursuing certification, civil society and standards organizations, academics, and any other interested stakeholders. In order to answer this survey, you must review the draft of the new standards,  shared here. Stakeholder input is crucial to developing the standards further and assessing their relevance and rigor. 

If you are a Certified B Corp please use this separate survey, which can be accessed here. The survey for Certified B Corps differs from this Public Consultation survey in that it asks a higher number of questions to solicit more detailed feedback on each of the specific topics. The public consultation survey contains fewer questions that gather feedback in a more consolidated fashion, while also providing avenues for detailed feedback if the respondent chooses to provide it. 

Survey Overview 
After initial questions covering demographic information, the questions in this survey aim to assess your perception of the new draft standards: whether they reflect leadership on social, environmental, and governance business impact; if they are attainable on the whole and at a topic level; and any additional feedback.  

While we encourage you to provide input for all topics, you are not required to respond to every topic or every question; you can prioritize the topics you would most like to give feedback on. The form is likely to take a minimum of 20 minutes to complete.

You can go back and forth between pages, and your answers will be saved. 

If you have any questions or would like to offer more detailed feedback beyond the questions covered in this survey, please reach out to standardsmanagement@bcorporation.net. We look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for your engagement!
