Standards Advisory Council

B Lab’s Standards Advisory Council (SAC) is an independent multi-stakeholder council composed of experts on sustainable business from around the world that are responsible for overseeing the performance standards for B Corp Certification, including the B Impact Assessment. It consists of two subcommittees, one focused on the overall certification requirements and standards (the Main SAC), and another focused on specific application of the standards for large companies (the Multinational Company Subcommittee).

The Main Subcommittee oversees the overall performance requirements for B Corp Certification, the content and scoring of the B Impact Assessment (BIA), the development of position statements on Controversial Issues, and Disclosure Review eligibility cases for companies under $1B in revenue (including those identified by B Lab’s public complaints mechanism). They are also responsible for approving addenda to the BIA created by expert working groups, and adjudicating any appeals regarding interpretation of the BIA.

The Multinational Subcommittee of B Lab’s Standards Advisory Council is responsible for applying the Performance Requirements of the B Corp Certification and Movement Builders program for large companies, including evaluations of company compliance with Baseline Requirements for B Corp Certification for $5B+ Parent Companies, Disclosure Review eligibility for $1B+ companies, and participation as a B Movement Builder.
