Overall B Impact Score
- Impact Area
The B Corp Assessment is scored out of 200 possible points. The Assessment comprehensively covers the impact of a business on all of its stakeholders, including its workers, suppliers, community, and the environment. The Assessment also captures best practices regarding mission, measurement, and governance. The last, heavily weighted, portion of the Assessment identifies the company’s specific “Impact Business Models,” which include the targeted, formal focus on benefiting a particular stakeholder through products and services or internal practices.
The highest scores that are also verified by B Lab typically vary from year to year but are generally between 160-170 points. Most companies score between 40 and 100 points out of the 200 points available. Any score higher than 0 pachieved oints is a good score, as a positive score indicates that the company is doing something positive for society and the environment. The Assessment rewards practices that go beyond standard business practice; therefore, every point earned on the Assessment reflects incremental, positive impact.
