Illinois B Corps

Using business as a force for good in Illinois

Redefining Success in Business

Certified Illinois B Corps use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems in our state and around the world. Care to join us?


What is a Certified B Corporation?

B Corp is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk.

B Corps are for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.

Today, there is a growing community of thousands of Certified B Corps from 60 countries and over 150 industries working together toward 1 unifying goal: to redefine success in business.

Upcoming Events

Our local B Corps get together, share stories, and help others use business as a force good during quarterly educational and social events. We'd love for you to join us.

Illinois B Corp events are open to everyone—employees of Certified B Corps, our friends, or the "B-curious" (people/companies who are thinking about becoming B Corps) and friends-to-be. The more people who want to learn about using business as a force for good, the better!
