Join the Fowler Center for Business as an Agent for World Benefit on Thursday, September 8 at 5:00 PM EST in the Tinkham Veale University Center in Ballroom A for the launch of the Business for World Benefit Clinic. This program is designed to connect students to aspiring B Corporations, in order to give students a chance to learn and gain consulting experience while increasing their knowledge of sustainability.

Have you ever wondered how companies become B Corps?

B Corps—like Warby Parker, Ben & Jerry, Danone, and Patagonia—are "for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency."

B Corp Certification is the only certification that measures a company's entire social and environmental performance. Certification doesn't just prove where companies excel now — it also commits companies to their mission for the long term. Globally, there are over 5,000 B Corps across 70 countries and 150 industries, and over 100,000 companies manage their impact with the B Impact Assessment (BIA).

The Fowler Center at Case Western Reserve University is giving an opportunity to undergraduate and graduate students to help companies strengthen their social and environmental impact. Companies are matched with a team of students (intentionally designed to include students from multiple schools and disciplines) to go through the assessment process and identify strategies they can take to improve their BIA scores. Students will gain hands-on consulting experience and the chance to learn about social and environmental impact assessment and sustainable business models.

Join us for this Launch Event to learn more about this new program, hear about the companies participating this Fall, and learn how to apply to be a part of the Business for World Benefit Clinic.
