Episode 94: Business as a Force for Good

What if there were a way to measure a company’s entire social and environmental impact?

Well, there is! It’s called the “B Impact Assessment,” and it’s offered by the nonprofit, B Lab.

Since March is B Corp Month, I devote this episode of Brand for Good to discussing the ongoing paradigm shift in the business world and how the triple bottom line philosophy of “people, planet and profit” is here to stay. I also talk about how you can take steps to use business as a force for good with or without becoming a certified B Corp.
