Upstream 21 influences the B CorporationNewsPublished June 21, 2010 at 10:57 pm No Comments
A little-known fact about Upstream 21 is that we influenced the thinking behind the original “B Corporation.”
The founders of B Labs, the team behind the B Corporation phenomenon, gleaned some of their corporate charter strategy from Upstream 21 and Leslie Christian, Chair of the Board. Here’s a link to the Inc article from back in 2007 when B Corps were just a cool idea and Leslie was quoted. We’re thrilled that we were able to contribute a little bit to the B Corporation movement: 300+ corporations, $1.1B in revenues, and 54 industries are now B Corporations.
