I was quoted in a recent article on B-Corps in Raconteur, which is distributed by the Times newspaper in the United Kingdom.
The number of certified B corps is growing as shareholders, employees and consumers seek out companies with a proven positive impact. But can B corps all be a force for good?
Bournemouth University’s Dr Michael O’Regan, who researches B corps, questions the scalability of the concept. “We have 5.7 million businesses in the UK, B corp, while ethical and trying to do a good thing, might attract low-hanging fruit, those already socially, environmentally responsible,” he says. “What of the millions of other private businesses?” O’Regan questions whether the model is a template for “radical change”.
