What do we mean by “purpose-driven organizations?”

We believe that all nonprofits, businesses, and public agencies can play a critical role in shaping our world for the better—essentially, that all organizations, regardless of sector, have the ability to work toward a greater good, beyond simply delivering the tangible product or service they provide.

The purpose-driven organizations we partner with seek to create, along with their own margins, sustainable, positive impact in the areas of social fairness and environmental sustainability.

OE Consulting is proud to use business as a force for good, and is becoming a certified B Corporation.

Our original firm, Schaffer&Combs, scored higher in the B Corp Assessment than other organizations of the same size and the national average overall in each category, with exceptionally high scores in the categories of Workers and Customers.

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.
