The specific questions that appear in your assessment depend on your company’s track, which is the sector, size, and geography of your business.
Each question is assigned a relative weighting based on how difficult the practice is to implement and the directness of the indicator in assessing a positive impact on workers, communities, environment, and/or customers, as determined by B Lab’s independent Standards Advisory Council. For example, there are equally weighted questions, heavily weighted questions, less weighted questions, and unweighted questions. Generally speaking, questions measuring specific outputs and outcomes are more heavily weighted than questions about policies and practices. that you frequently don’t need to answer all options to get full credit, that “other” option is weighted less, etc.
