GOOD.is | Infographic: What's a B Corporation? (Raw Image) | Empresas B | Scoop.it

With the number of companies in the world today, it can be hard to discern which truly embody social and environmental values worth supporting. Thanks to certification efforts like those through B Lab, it's becoming a little easier to measure a company's business practices through a standardized process. Businesses can apply for certification from B Lab to become a Certified B Corporation, which is an accreditation showing that a company voluntarily meets certain standards of transparency, accountability, and performance as part of the B Corps community.

La EMPRESA y su Responsabilidad Social: Las empresas de beneficios (B Corporations): una nueva Era

La EMPRESA y su Responsabilidad Social: Las empresas de beneficios (B Corporations): una nueva Era | Empresas B | Scoop.it

"Recientemente tuve conocimiento de la creación de un nuevo tipo de organizaciones, las llamadas en español empresas de beneficios (B Corporations en inglés),  las cuales permiten a los inversionistas y hombres de negocios resolver los problemas sociales a través de la misma empresa.

 

Esta sociedad legalmente creada, está obligada a:
1) tener un objeto social para crear un impacto significativo positivo en la sociedad y el medio ambiente.
2) ampliar el deber fiduciario para exigir la consideración de los intereses de los trabajadores, la comunidad y el medio ambiente.
3) publicar un informe anual sobre su desempeño social y ambiental utilizando un estandar completo y creíble, realizado por una tercera parte independiente y transparente.

 

Su existencia que por ahora es reconocida legalmente por unos cuantos estados de la Unión Americana, viene a resultar tal vez filosóficamente hablando, una “vuelta de tuerca”, a como debieron hacer sido vistas y creadas las primeras empresas en su concepción social, allá a mediados del siglo XVIII."
