B Corp Town Hall: The Power of Business as a Force for Good

On June 27th 2013, from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM, the B Corp is hosting a town hall. This special roundtable will include leading online innovators of the B Corp Community.

The event will feature Jessica Alba and Christopher Gavigan of +The Honest Company, Neil Blumenthal and David Gilboa of +Warby Parker, and Chad Dickerson of +Etsy.

The rapidly growing B Corp movement currently encompasses more than 740 companies across 60 industries and in 26 nations around the world - all with the common thread of using the power of business as a force for good.

B Corp certification is to sustainable business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk. B Corps are certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.
