We’re in business to help society and the planet flourish. Since the first B Corp certified in Denmark in 2015, we have mobilized the Nordic B Corp community towards collective action, collaborating to drive fundamental systems change.

The Growth of the Movement

The first Nordic B Corp certified in 2015 and with almost 70 B Corps our region is an important part of the global B Corp community. Today there are B Corps in all 5 Nordic countries and all main industries are represented.

B Corps in the Nordics

How do we drive change in the Nordics

Our vision is to build an equitable, inclusive and regenerative economic system and all our initiatives are directed towards impact improvement, movement making and igniting collective action towards systems change.

  • Thriving B Corp Community

    The Nordic B Corp movement is an active community with a shared vision to use business as a force for good. They collaborate in working groups on key impact areas to improve on everything from CO2 reduction to JEDI.

  • Communications campaigns

    To drive system change, we need to change the hearts and minds of all citizens in the Nordic region. The Nordic B Corps are collaborating to raise brand awareness through different campaigns, such as the annual B Corp Month.

  • B Leaders

    +100 Nordic B Leaders have been through an 8-week training program enabling professionals to work with B Lab’s tools, the B Impact Assessment and SDG Action Manager, as management tools and a pathway to B Corp Certification.

  • B Like a B Corp

    To spread B Lab’s standards for measuring what matters, we have created an interactive program for companies that wish to use the BIA as a management model and measure, compare and improve impact for all stakeholders.

  • Nordic Climate Collective

    The Nordic Climate Collective is a vibrant working group, battling the climate crisis.

  • Collective Action

    The B Corp movement is built on values of community and interdependence, values that lie deep in the roots of the Nordics and our B Corps build coalitions in industries from beauty to finance. They use their collective voice to rally together for systems changes on topics that matter most to them, such as climate change, and stakeholder governance.

B Corp Movement Team in the Nordics

The B Corp movement in the Nordics is driven mainly by a community of volunteering enthusiasts on a common mission: to redefine success in business. We dedicate time, skills, and energy to create awareness around the B Corp movement, influence legislation, and inspire, challenge and help companies enhance their positive impact.
