“Towards impact and beyond…” This is how one could sum up the common lineage adopted between ChangeNOW and B Lab!
ChangeNOW is the world’s largest gathering of innovations for the planet. All year long, the team spots the most promising innovations for the planet and makes sure they can be connected to the resources they need to develop their impact. Every year for the past four years, a three-day global summit for the planet is being held, bringing together innovators, CEOs, investors, major groups, talent, and the media…
B Lab is the structure that accompanies the B Corp™: both a French and international community of impact companies, a free impact monitoring and measurement tool accessible to all, as well as a label that certifies companies that respect high social and environmental standards.
On the one hand, there is a desire to federate, connect and multiply the synergies between the various impact players; on the other, there is a desire to support, provide tools and develop reading and action grids for greater commitment in companies. And in common, a great ambition to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable world.
Today, we, B Lab & ChangeNOW, would like to invite you to join our ecosystems. Companies, whether you are committed, in transition, questioning, motivated, lacking tools or networks: you are not alone. Join us in building a regenerative and inclusive economy that works for everyone.
Beyond speaking out loud, we want to give a voice to the business leaders who are initiating change in our ecosystems. Therefore, we interviewed 3 actors of our cross-communities to ask them why, and how, they manifest their impact on a daily basis in their companies. Alexandre Mars for Blisce, Clara Bardiau for the Skateroom and Belinda Christine Borck for Tony’s Chocolonely tell us about their commitment through a series of 3 pieces.
Alexandre Mars, CEO @ Blisce:
For us, being part of the ChangeNOW and B Lab ecosystem means playing an active role in building the economy of the future: an economy that works for all stakeholders, not just shareholders. It’s by collaborating and sharing actionable best practices with one another that we can meaningfully move the needle and amplify our respective social and environmental commitments.
Belinda Christine Borck, Impacticular Storyteller @ Tony’s chocolonely:
It’s a holistic approach overseeing the entire supply chain, which aligns with our way of viewing and doing business. The strength of a cross-sector community working towards achieving the same goal has an immense value and it gives us the opportunity to learn from others, as well as share our progress and how we’ve achieved it.
Clara BARDIAU, Impact Manager @ The Skateroom:
I believe that the strongest value of this ecosystem is the synergies it builds. Ultimately, we all have the same goal, and yes every little step counts, but by sharing practices and joining forces, we can be best for the world, together.
