Summary, Etc. NoteTells the story of the rise of a new corporate form—the B Corporation. Founded by a group of friends who met at Stanford, these companies undergo a rigorous certification process, overseen by the B Lab, and commit to putting social benefits, the rights of workers, community impact, and environmental stewardship on equal footing with financial shareholders. Driven by B Lab, 34 U.S. states have passed benefit corporation legislation and more than 5,000 U.S. companies have incorporated using the benefit corporation form. Internationally, benefit corporation legislation has either passed or is in process in Argentina, Australia, Canada, Chile, Colombia, and Italy. This book explores how and why the change led by B Lab is working, why it is crucial to the well-being of every person on the planet, and what its future prospects are. -- Adapted from publisher description.
